I had so much fun cramming in 13 lost years into a one month holiday, but at the same time I quite regretted that I hadn't go into photography earlier. It was amazing to see how much easier it is to photograph wild birds in Australia as compared with Europe. All of these shots used nothing more powerful than a 200mm lens and a bit of cropping.

Lame joke from the boat guide:
Why do you always see terns in pairs?
Because one good tern deserves another (groan)

Another chance to use a polarising filter - definitely comes in handy in the harsh Australian light. I am finding, however, a much larger colour variation in the photos I took with this filter on different computers. If the monitor isn't calibrated right they come out too blue, too dark, or both...

In its original state, this photo was pretty flat, but at the same time the blurriness seemed to really convey the flighty silliness of a little girl chasing butterflies. With the contrast levels giving highly saturated colours, the image worked much better overall and I was able to salvage what would've been a throwaway picture in its original state.
