Pilot jetty at sunset

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 26 April 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This was shot from the rear of the Littlehaven Hotel on the banks of the River Tyne, South Shields and shows the remnants of the old Pilot Jetty jutting out into the river from Harbour View in the centre.

I'm now starting to get a better handle on the controls of this Fuji Finepix HS30EXR, especially the exposure compensation control, which I now use quite extensively. All of the adjustments for this sunset were made in Adobe Camera RAW.

Mrs. Curly has now completed the latest course of her treatment and is being nursed at home, she is doing quite well and is able to get about again. Necessarily I have to devote most of my time to her and the children, so for now reciprocal visits to your pages will be very limited, but I do appreciate reading your comments.

FUJIFILM FinePix HS30EXR 1/220 second F/3.2 ISO 100 6 mm

Use control and your mouse scroll wheel to zoom the picture/page, then control and 0 to reset to normal size.

Even though I may not be able to visit or respond daily, I always welcome your comments or critiques.
