St Kilda Pier, by Nino Xerri – Image Review 10, third winner

Sony a6000; E 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 OSS lens @ 73mm; 1/160s; f/5; ISO 100 (tripod used)

Image taken a few years ago to trial the above lens and to judge for myself why this lens was getting such mixed reviews. Needless to say, I am pleased with the results produced and still have the lens.

Don’s response

It may have been a lens testing exercise, but Nino Xerri’s strong image of the much photographed St Kilda pier is beautifully composed and superbly executed.

The crisp details of the reef and the choppy water give the foreground an engaging tactility, while the straight out of central casting dramatic sky compliments the exuberant Edwardian architecture of the pier.

Proof positive that it is possible to see — and then capture — even the most famous landmarks in engaging and interesting ways.

As Image Review 10 third winner, Nino has won a Fujifilm X-A5 with XC15-45mm lens.
