click on images to enlarge, hope you enjoy them - these are mainly images of Melbourne, and if you haven't worked it out by now, I love my Melbourne and the people that live here. 

Oh, and don't let anyone tell you its always rainy & cold here, it may not be as warm or sunny as Sydney or Brisbane, but we get a quarter to half their annual rainfall and it sure ain't as oppressively humid here in Summer!

no PS effects for this effect - this effect is straight from a winter scene.

It's great when the lighting is just right and you have your camera with a nice lens such as the Olympus OM 50mm f/1.4 - these were shot at f/1.4 and ISO 400 on an Olympus E330.
