Yamba, on the far Northern NSW coast, is a very pretty place. I took an hour or so and came back with a few nice images.
Macro isn’t a really strong point of the D-Lux, but it’s not bad, either. The control over the Aperture and the fast lens makes for nice bokeh and shallow depth of field.
The pelicans around Yamba aren’t worried by people wielding cameras – at least not too much, otherwise I would never have made this image, which was shot from just a few metres away.
This image is a tweaked JPEG – if Aperture supported the RAW files, I would have used that, but this looks OK.
The D-Lux does nice black & white in camera. In this image I’ve used the red filter option, which has darkened the sky very effectively.
