    thanks for the comments guys

    i know what you mean, but i am pretty close to the edge haha, also can get some freak waves there, so i try not to stand TOO close to the water, lost a 60D because it (and me) got fully pelted by a freak wave last year, not gonna punt it with my 5D :p

    chief: it's a nice place, but can be a bit tricky to shoot, tbh i am not 100% happy with the compo but because the way the rocks are formed i can't get my tripod on there properly on a few of the spots i actually wanted to shoot from

    my horusbennu tripod can't get as low as my old manfrotto but i personally didn't like the look of the few shots i had low (which is partly due to the positions i am shooting from also as said earlier scared of the freak waves)

    I know what you mean about the freak waves. The shots I took Saturday morning at the beach had me worrying about water damage. It would not be a good day out if $4500 of camera and lens went for a swim........when that happens, composition doesn't matter anymore!
    I also went out in a Kayak the other week, looking for Bald Eagles. Again I had $4500 hanging from my neck and I'd never been in a Kayak before. It was worth it in the end.

    Off topic a bit but my cousin was saying to me how much a difference a full frame camera is better than his 450d, he is looking at getting a nikon d610, does it make a big difference. ?

    chief: that would've been nerve wracking lol

    bookikon, it's not necessarily full frame being "so much better" but in this case the 450D is a pretty old entry level slr therefore a newer full frame like the nikon D600 or like canon 5D2/3 will have noticeably better image quality as well as functions compared to the 450D

    but in terms of general ff vs crop comparison ff generally have better image quality due to a bigger sensor (and is more noticeable at higher ISO) and allows for smaller depth of field (which is not necessarily always an advantage, such as when shooting macro)

    Full frame is fantastic for those shallow DoF portraits. Also landscape and low light.
