Re: Piers at play

PietFrancke; Wish I could do image processing to your level. "interesting shot and process - this looks like a place to visit over and over - A foggy day comes to mind, a boat or better yet, ship at the end, sunrise or sunset, the list goes on and on." Played with it a bit more. I did put a boat int...

Re: Experimenting with liquid pour shots

Duck; Thx for the gentle slap on the backside... :lol: Looking at the wine photos brought me back to college days where we did fluid into glasses where careful use of bounce cards to carefully expose the glass rims. Why oh why didn't I think of your method and get rid of the bloody thing. What a fab...

Re: August Fingerwork #5 - If there be dragons

""I am grateful for a place where that's possible. I am a refugee from a different forum where experimentation was sometimes less welcome, and I appreciate the folks who share our village!"" I too am a survivor from another forum, where a picture may be presented, but if not shot at a precise angle,...

Piers at play

On another post called " 5 Ways to Simplify and Improve your Landscape Photography " there was a picture of a pier leading into the sea. Having a slow shutter speed, it blurred the water nicely. The attached picture had structures leading into the sea, but I didn't drag the shutter, so I thought I'd...

Be true to yourself. I enjoy your work immensely and learn from it.
Have fun;

Re: August Fingerwork #3 - Lilacs and More Misplaced Music etc

"" I fooled with it a few different ways and can't remember why I chose this particular one. The lilacs are supposed to be the main subject, but the butterfly worked his way in. I meant him to be just a little translucent surprise in the background but I liked the ghostly way I got him rendered and ...

Re: Aboriginal Art

Excellent thought, Minniev. Foreground and background in focus, not thought of that one. This was taken with my 24-70. I've got a 100-400 lens, will try about F16 and see if I can pull them in. If not I'll do a 2 layer shot and merge. Tripod? You have to get permission. Photo taken in Sydney Art Gal...

Re: NSW art gallery

Why oh why does a portrait have to be so flat and boring
