Westminister Underground Station, London, England

First upload since last week, been rather busy. I went to Rome for couple days, got my new fisheye (which had to go back, more on that shortly) and also Lightroom 4 :-).

Rome is an awesome place, really enjoyed it and looking forward to processing some of my photos. For the trip I managed to get my new fisheye which I was well chuffed about, I went for the Samyang 8mm f3.5 in the end. It is a fully manual lens but I felt it was very good value for money. However when using is I noticed that there was vignetting in the top left and right hand corner which I thought was odd. I did expect to get some but reviews I read on the internet said that there was non on a Sony Alpha camera, it was worse in the top left, again rather strange. So rang the guys at UK Digital, they were brilliant. They asked me to send it back to them and they will check it out. The next day, they rang up saying they can see the problem on their A77 and they were going to try the whole Sony stock out :-). They sent me one and the next day it came, no problems found. I really like the fisheye, I didn't realise how wide it is until I actually used it. It does take a bit of getting used to but I'm glad I got it.

Now the next big thing in the week was Lightroom 4. I took the plunge and got that too. Quite a few improvements over its predecessor. I really like the geotagging feature. However I have noticed a problem with this, for those who have LR4 could you check it out please? This is the first photo I have uploaded with LR4 and I put the GPS coordinates in Lightroom, uploaded but for some reason Flickr hasn't automatically updated the map and I still have to do it manually which is a bit of a pain.

This photo was also the first uploaded photo with my fisheye (the broken one) and all I can say its great for urban photos like this. When editing this photo, it reminded me of the film Blade Runner. It seems that alot of films influence the way I edit photos. I thought it was a fitting title.

Hope you all enjoy your Monday, thats all for now.
