    Hello,

    Have been to South Wales this weekend with my girlfriend Sarah. Stayed in Tenby on Friday and Saturday then came back today (Sunday)...although the weather didn't give us any rain (phew) it spent most of the time being overcast.

    Had a great weekend and went out for a lot of walking and checking out the beaches. Used the opportunity to have a break from shooting sports and have a go at some different kind of shots; have been through them now and these are some of my favourites with a little bit of processing.

    Comments and critique as always appreciated and welcome:

    Thanks for looking, all photos taken on the 350d and with the 18-55mm kit lens, 50mm F/1.8 Mk II and a set of extension tubes.

    The first two and the last one are great, although i feel that the others don't really have a wow factor as such. Nice though :)

    Yeh I agree with you. Having taken some shots with light though it has infused me to want to go and do more...think I am going to get myself out at night over the coming weeks.

    I like the two harbour shots. They are cool, love the lights and how they shine like that.

    I really like the first 2 shots, I live in that area so can appreciate them.

    Lucky you're not here today the weather is bad :( but dont let that put you off it's a really nice area and you should check out some of the secluded beaches which you have to walk the coastal path to get to.. anyway good shots come back again in the proper summer :)

    I like the first two, everything looks so calm.

    The snail and raindrop macro shots look slightly out of focus to me.
