Sunset: playing with my cam

I've been trying to learn how to work with my cam (canon eos 400d) by just messing around. I know I should practice a thing at a time with the handbook at my side, but I'm a bit lazy. So I just messed around a bit with under-exposure etc. I took the pics in a time-frame of around an hour or so.

Nice sky. You don't get such lovely sunsets often in Holland.

@ Nicole..indeed. It was one of the last nice ones of 'summer'(27-09). But maybe tonight..the sky is clear enough.

@ Dan: I'm thinking about getting that one printed.

Really nice! I've got a lovely sunset everyday. Sounds weid, but my appartment has the perfect spot for it.

well I've got one too most of the time, but today I found out the sun sank too fast too low.

I like how the Oosterkerk makes a good relief. What does 'aangepastdm' mean (..what's adjusted)?

Very nice pics. There is a lot to learn with dslr cameras - keep practicing and keep posting them.

@ Sean: yes I will :), I should do a course or read the manual some more.

@Shadowfalcon: yeah, it's one hell of a nice cam :) I think they go for around 350€ if you look hard enough.

Nice pictures, Arjan, perhaps you should be doing your own 365?

They're all cool but I like the last one best.

hmm if I decide to do that..it'll only start on the 1st of January..but I don't know if I'll be able to. For now I'll keep to my irregular update scheme.

Drawings with light are just plain funny. I've also got one where the lamps on the lampposts look like little light-birds.
