Re: Reeds, Lake Catani

That looks very nice indeed. The enclosed landscape format suits this down to the ground, or should I say, "water?" Reminds me of "Pick up Sticks" the game, something I haven't played in close to 60 years. We had wooden ones which looked just like those reeds. The modern ones wer...

Re: Round Silo, Lake Cargellico

Walter, yep it was a find indeed. Maris, I agree with you about the wavy painted lines around the silo smack dead in the centre. This was cropped so that the painted lines were in the centre, more or less. Agree, that centre graduated filter is just the bees knees. I really think that without that f...

Re: Clunes Town Hall

Maris, you are correct, using the 65mm lens would have been fantastic; except I didn't own one when I shot this. I was running a standard basic kit, 90mm Angulon (Linhof branded) which was good and is still good, but coverage is just there in 4x5". I then had the Fujinon 150mm which is an excel...

Re: Clunes Town Hall

Walter, I somehow don't think I'll get the same kind of light, it was quite stormy, windy and all of that kind of stuff. When I exposed the film, that was probably after a 15' or so wait; about when I was wondering if I would ever get anything bright. You can see the dark clouds in the sky behind th...

Clunes Town Hall

This is one building I have wished to return to, ever since taking this photograph. I took this in November 2011 at 1122hrs according to my notes; although the town hall clock suggests 1120hrs. :D I had at the time a 90mm but it just covered the 4x5" format, so no movements outside about 5mm in...

Re: Frankland Range, South West Tasmania

Mmm, food for thought there.

We have contemplated a trip to Tassie for around 10 years, it is possible that we will do one inside 5 years; will certainly keep this in mind.

Round Silo, Lake Cargellico

We had spent a couple of nights camped alongside the lake and had walked through the town a couple of times, I turned a corner and saw the round silo; just had to take a picture. I waited for one of the rushing clouds to hopefully darken the left hand background; more of as wish really, but it happe...

Re: Frankland Range, South West Tasmania

Never been to that part of the country, probably never will as it is a bit late for me to be bush walking in terrain like that. Looks like a real interesting place and after checking on the www I found that you would have been nearing 1,000m for many of the peaks at around 42º Latitude; cool. I like...

Re: Swamp Forms, Noosa NP.

This is really on the money.

Adventitious, has to be the word of the day. :mrgreen:

After seeing a reasonable amount of your work with the 8x10" camera and 300mm lens, I think it would fair to say you have that combination under control.

Re: Murdering Creek, Logs and Snags.

Love the name, wonder if its because of something that happened many moons ago? Hmm, very nice, but I wonder if you had considered burning in the top right branches coming out of the water by ½ to 1 stop darker? When I look at the image with the light colours of the bulletin board surrounding it, it...
