We took ourselves to Leeds Corn Exchange to try and get some nice shots. In keeping with our philosophy of deleting anything that we wouldn’t be happy to display on our living room wall, this is what’s left – totally unedited, straight off the memory card. We were using the Nikon D5300, 35mm f1.8 DX G lens, and the cheapo 0.21x fisheye adapter. All shots handheld in good light, which is always nice 🙂
f11 50th sec ISO 800 The first of two shots of the central balcony part. I like this one for the detail on the staircase going down into the basement. Also nice detail of the person taking pictures of the crows. Oh yes, THE CROWS!
f11 30th sec ISO800 +0.7ev Gave this one a little more exposure, just to brighten it up. I like the symmetry here, and the person in the centre adds a focus to the shot that finds your eye. Perhaps too much blank space at the bottom of the shot though?
f11 50th sec ISO800 +1.3ev Thought I’d try a portrait shot to get the spectacular roof in. Kinda works, but the focus is soft in the foreground, and the shot is a little blurred overall. Must try harder. 🙂
f11 30th sec ISO800 +1.3ev Landscape shot of the above, and much sharper too. Could do with some straightening in PS to fix the slant to the left though. Challenging building, even for a fisheye!
f11 60th sec ISO800 Last shot of one of the fine staircases before we left. tricky to expose the black metal against the pale and well lit ceiling. Like this one though.
