    Actually redhairkid doesn't have red hair. Theres a long stupid story behind the username which isn't photography related so I wont bother posting it here. Those photos are great mpot. Starting to go through some of mine now but probably wont post them till tomorrow seeing as I'm falling asleep at the pc.

    And in reality my hair is not that colour. Not sure why it looks orange/red in the pic (perhaps it was the sun).

    I would say that #8 is my favourite. Sorry I didn't come along. I only just got home.

    Would have been great if you guys got some sunset shots too.

    First shot and lomo shot stand out to me Dunc :D nice work.

    Bad luck with the quick release plate F2Black. I always carry a spare in my camera bag while the other never leaves the battery grip.

    Nice photo's guys.

    Duncan - the opera house/coat-hanger shots all seem out of balance, I'd either crop more off the left, or (if possible) crop less off the right.

    Hi guys

    Unfortunately I can’t really post the larger size to most of the following images as the photo sharing site I’m using seems to apply sharpening to my already processed images making them appear oversharpened and pixelated. I’m not sure why they would do this. Anyway here’s my contribution.
