    Default A couple of nite shots

    Testing out the star filter. Effect was not what i expected.



    Tried to test the wide angle converter too but couldn't focus.

    The focus looks ok but pictures are slightly overexposed. Personally, I still prefer "stars" from using f8 and above.

    Think i need to experiment with it more to find best positioning and aperture settings. U find the stars unnatural?

    please do realise tt star filter may cause "out of focus" problem ... best is to set to the manual focus mode with infinity focus ...

    Hmm. 1 question here. If i want to couple it with a wide angle adaptor which needs me to set to macro mode, in that case, should i use manual focus to adjust the focus?

    I think you should at least try to straighten the building.
    Personally, I would stay away from any kind of star filters. I think they're just a waste of money. Just me.

    U mean like this?

    Probably will retake this again with better positioning and exposure. Gives me a chance to try out the wide angle adaptor

    Yes, its better but now the road is being cropped off and the building id ending too abruptly. I think its a good idea to take this shot again. Practice makes prefect. Also try to avoid the roof/ceiling on the top left hand corner. Its quite distracting too.

    Took this from the bus stop. I also not very happy with the busstop roof Should either zoom more or take from another angle.
