A few attempts at the bandstand today - a dull autumn day

1...The Bandstand and the Bailey. Photographed from footpath of the main road (Queens Road) with a Canon SX40 with the Superzoom lens at max extent - equivalent to 840mm. The apex and roof of the bandstand are almost reflected in the shape of the lighthouse and the headland

Image

2...Through the ironwork - a shot in which the East lighthouse and some sails are framed by elements of the bandstand ironwork

Image

3...Through the Ironwork (2) - This time, the Ironwork is almost lost out of focus, drawing attention to a passing sailor

An alternate - the fountain and the clock-tower

Dancer,

It looks like an exotic sundrenched location,by night. Great shots.

Tried this -
It nearly worked. If only -
a) floor was a foot lower - even my v-wide lens couldn't capture the whole lot.
b) camera was better aligned with roof pattern

Canon EOS 50D, ISO=100, Aperture = f4.38, Shutter=1/50, Flash=No

okay - this was a bit of a gamble - I used the obelisk to 'frame' the (too) faraway bandstand. Id like to try this again on a sunnier day when the bandstand was better lit , the wintering boats are out of the way and the puddle is gone. As it stands, a normal viewer might overlook it altogether. (No, the puddle was not made by the dog).

My wide angle lens managed to capture the whole roof and part of the struts of the Victoria Fountain. By holding the camera waist high, I even managed to squeeze in the horse.

Overall, its a bit like being enveloped by a giant squid.

Only problem was the light – too much leaking through the roof so the ceiling is too dull. I tried to force the flash but no joy. Worth another go – probably when its darker.

Camera: Canon EOS 50D,
Lens: 10-22mm Wide Angle
ISO=100
Aperture=f3.6
Shutter=1/80s
Flash=Off

To be honest, I shouldn't really be offering up this one - but I just couldn't resist.
Its the Fountain AND the Bandstand (taken from the balcony of the 40 Foot & exploiting the gap in the trees)

btw - its not a stitch - its a single wide angle shot cropped top & bottom.

But the exposure and focus is all wrong - you can barely distinguish either subject. I'll have to try harder next time.

Arrrrrgh!

A great big Tall Ship has just moored alongside the bandstand. (As I post, there are guys climbing up the rigging)
And its a sunny day
Picture opportunity for anyone?
Alas I'm on a different mission now so cant go down.
