Re: Practicing Dancers

Nothing much to add to this. It's been said.
"What I was looking for was to just catch a moment."
Comment reminds me of Bob Holmes and his work.
Gonna try it out when I go to the art museum. Sit in a quiet spot and wait for the scene to appear.

Steve;
"Tail too short"
We have to remember that these animals have not been around for 1000's and many cases millions of years

Re: Sensor Cleaning..AGAIN!!

When you clean the sensor you are not actually touching the elements, there is a protective covering.
Took delivery of my almost new Canon 1dx Mk2
Happy lad again!
Will try to post pictures of the foil inside the beer can holders this week, with scene shots.
Have fun;

Re: a sense of place

Duck; "Why oh why do we have to say that a picture is under exposed because the exposure range is not dragged all the way to the right." I should have explained myself somewhat better. By dragging the exposure range to the right it would not be a dusk/twilight scene but something taken in ...

Re: Museum Pieces

I wanted to give the impression that the cat was moving. For that I warp blurred the right side of the legs and head.

Re: What I would rather shoot!!

A masterpiece of artistry. I am inspired by your work.
I do know the smudge tool, but what softening brushes are you referring to?
I recently posted a boring photo of a stuffed wild cat. Using the lasso and smudge tool I could make it come alive.

Museum Pieces

With nothing to do, I went to the Natural History Museum here in Sydney. Of course I took my remote flashes, which turned out to be a waste of time as you are not allowed in most parts to use flash and I'm still waiting for my tripods to be shipped back.

Re: Selfie a la Master Ernst

Poor old duck; Not the prettiest picture is it? I've got a stuffed bear that shows more emotion! Now that I am laughing, perhaps I should be a bit more serious, but not much!
