Billabong at Wombat Bend

My attempt. Probably a bit overdone for your taste, but...
That was fun. I might play around with it a bit more. I got some artifacting to get rid of and the sky came out looking too purple.

Re: Bi-plane sculpture

Hmm... sounds like a superb photo project worthy of publication in the end. I'm sure locals would love to purchase a copy after you're done. Add a bit of history like the info you shared here and it's be a great coffee table book.

Re: A Few Photos with my Newly Converted IR Camera

Well, maybe start with the 40D, and then do the 7D when you replace the 7D in its current role.... that way you will eventually have a backup IR camera. :devil: Eh... no. At $250-300 a pop for conversion, I'll stick with doing just one camera for now. You're starting to sound like my buddy, Pat. He...

Re: Impromptu Camaro shot

Aside from the background being somewhat distracting, and I actually don't find it horrible, I feel like the car is simply posed or staged incorrectly. With the car facing away from the camera, I feel like I expect a much more grand, sweeping vista or something beyond the car instead of the corner ...

Re: A view over the billabong.

I gave your image a quick once over. If you want, I'll post what I did so you can see what I meant.

Re: Impromptu Camaro shot

Good point about the lines. On the other side of the river is a play area with basketball courts and a parking lot. That's what prompted me with the lower angle in the first place. I'll clone out the distractions and see what comes of it.

Re: A view over the billabong.

Gorgeous shot but you should consider a tighter crop. The right and bottom of the frame is rather uninteresting and can be left out. I like the overall warmth of the image but the trees need some of their green brought back out. Cropping in will also give the viewer a sense of closeness, almost as i...

Impromptu Camaro shot

I needed to get some reference photos for some upcoming articles/tutorials so I took advantage of a fairly nice day and some down time for me. I ended up in a neighboring town down by the local marina. In the parking lot I came across this nice, fairly new Camaro so I decided to do an impromptu phot...
