After looking at these shots I may have to trek to Brazil for a peek. Currently checking out Australia. The coast here around Port Macquarie is spectacular... especially when you get to see up close and personal. Great site. g

Brazil is an amazing country...you could spend a lifetime just exploring one corner of it.
My wife is Brazilian so we go to Brazil most winters, and I'm always blown away by the beauty of the landscape, the purity of the light, and the warmth of the people.
This year we're spending a week or so in the rainforest at the edge of the Amazon....which has been a dream of mine for a while.

I like Australia, I've got family in Melbourne. It's a wonderful place as well, with some beautiful landscape and coastline.
Have a great time there...and thanks for the comment.

I actually live in Portugal next to the ocean, but this shot and my other recent ones were taken in North East Brazil, where I was on holiday last month.

Cheers mate, I really appreciate that. I personally look at all my images and think "Hmm, should have done better there" so it's always nice to get a compliment from someone who's been doing this as long as you have..and is so obviously good at it.
Thanks again

Meh, I guess you're right.
It's just that I was playing around on the beach the other night with the D80 and the images are so sharp. Even zoomed in at 100% and they still look great.
Not sure when I'll be in that part of Brazil again, and it was a really special holiday...I'm hoping I'm not going to never have the chance again to see such fantastic views.

I was exactly the same when i got the 400D... a dog with two..... err.... sticks? (is that how the phrase goes?) i did a couple of test shots to compare the fiju and the canon. 200mm, f3.5, iso 1600, on a signpost in a field. With the canon i could read the sign perfectly, with the fuji, i had a mosaic, couldn't aven tell there was i sign in the field!

Mate, you're only 35, there's a whole world out there calling your name (and mine ;-) ) I'm still hoping to do Norway before the end of april, have to see how the finances go though. :-(

I know the feeling mate..And I just recieved my 18-200mm with Vibration Reduction today...Oh, it's beautiful (but at that price, it bloody well should be), and a Hoya Polariser.
Now I really have to find time to get out and take some proper shots seeing as I've finally got some real equipment :-)

As for the travel thing, well I know mate...but the world is a BIG place! The last 3 years of my life have been a little wierd on a personal level, and things have only settled down in the last 6 or 7 months...so now I feel as though I've taken the pause button off and I'm ready to start living again.
Teresa and I sat down and made a list of all the places we wanted to visit and it started to get really long, and then we tried (jokingly) to fit it around our holidays, and it was just getting ludicrous: "Right, so winter 2010 is going to be Argentina and Uruguay" and stuff like that. Of course, it was all in jest, but it made me realise how time can slip by and you've got to get out and do stuff NOW.
So I'm not sure when we'll get to Brazil again (despite the fact that Teresa grew up there), simply because there are so many other places to get to. I booked 5 days in Marrakech at Easter (man, Easyjet fly there for 50 euros return from Madrid!!!!) and then in the summer I think we'll spend some time travelling around Portugal and Spain. Then we'll start planning next winter :-)

Of course, this doesn't leave much money for gadgets and camera stuff. I really need to win the lottery or something...

Cant wait to see some of the shots from your new lens, i bet the VR makes a HUGE difference. How's the polariser? i've only got a cheap one and find it doesn't really make that much difference (great for getting rid of reflections though).

Glad things are settling down for you, there's always sooo much to do, and so little time. Whenever i go somewhere new, i always think "shit!, there's so much more in the world to see, and i'm not getting any younger!" I just want to do everything right now! but, alas, funds, gadgets, work, house renovation, etc, they all add up to zap time and funds. Sam and i have done the same - there's a million and one places we'd like to go to, Morocco happens to be one of them!

.....i must start doing the lottery ;-).....

Well, so far the polarizer is fine. I went for the Pro, which is really really thin, but you can tell it's quality. The Cokin circular polarizer I was using was probably darker, and it gave me good results in Brazil...bit it's too early to really judge it yet...we've not really had the sunny weather.
But I'm slowly going to start upgrading my equipment. The way I see it, the D80 is going to last me a fair while, and even if I do upgrade, the lenses will probably last me. So it's time to get some proper gear. Of the Cokin filters I've got now, I think the only ones I'll stick with are the grey and blue grads...which are awesome. But after reading `londonxpress 's descriptions I'm going to start building up a collection of Hoya filters now, and next on my list if the ND400x..so let me know how you get on with it.
I was at the beach the other day and it's annoying having to wait until the sun has gone down to start getting long exposures...the sky was much more interesting 20 minutes earlier but it was just too bright.
So where did you get the filter from, was it Loobylins....I'll have to look into where I can find one online.

Of course, then there'll be the Manfrotto tripod and PS CS3 :-(

So how are the renovations going on your house? What are you up to?
I went through that in my apartment a few years ago and thought that it was all over..but Teresa and I have kind of inherited this empty farmhouse in the mountains in the Algarve. There's a lot of land and we are planning on turning it into a pousada. It's going to be a huge project, and probably take years...but I'm at that stage in life where I need the challange. I've been doing my job long enough and the change will do me good. Of course it's going to cost...so I might have to cut back on the gadgets a little.
We're going up there in a few weeks and if the weather's good I'm going to try and take some shots of the valley.

So yeah..the lottery. Bring it on
