Re: University of Southern Queensland

Very interesting to see colour and B&W for the exact same scene, presumably only minutes apart. Your technique is right on the money, the shadow detail in the B&W is exceptionally good, more so as it is near the edges of a wide angle lens. No mention of a graduated centre filter and yet the ...

Re: Alpana Station

I think the middle one would work best, it will allow for some lifting of the heavier areas as the image starts to fade. Thereby allowing your relatives in 100 years to marvel at old Bazz and how good he was.

Maris, has some very valid points.

Mick.

Re: Rock Pool and Nude

Maris, always good to hear the back story to a picture. I thought the right hand was perfectly placed and looked natural. Funny how we sometimes sweat over something, only to find that others don't even think about it. Models sometimes do things that we (photographers) find very uncomfortable when t...

Re: Bleached Snow Gums

Beautiful contrast control, the major cloud is perfectly placed, certainly lifts the whole image. The texture of the grass is great, contact printing really is something else.

Very nice.

Re: Grass and Herbs, Mt Wheatley Track

Well I'm glad that you chose to get a bit wet, certainly an interesting light. I think super flat lighting for certain subjects works very well, as it has here. I wonder though whether you have considered cropping out the top dark section, my take on the scene is this would give stronger emphasis on...

Re: Rock Pool and Nude

Maris, really well done. I viewed this in isolation, meaning it was surrounded by a completely black screen. When viewed like that, everything was correctly illuminated. The highlights, ulna, fingers and chest area, are all held. The deep shadows, a little surprisingly, are also perfectly held. Not ...

Re: Brachina Gorge

Very interesting, I have a Komura T400 which, when used carefully, is quite sharp but not razor sharp. It really stretches the front capability of my Shen Hao camera, which could be a contributing factor to its apparent lack of super sharpness. I used it for some super close-up portraits on my Toyo ...

Re: Berlebach Report 2042 tripod - new

I have the Berlebach Report 3042, which seems remarkably similar to this tripod.

Best tripod I have owned, unbelievably steady and seemingly vibration free after only a few seconds wait from pulling the dark slide.

Had mine for maybe 10 years, possibly longer.

Re: Whites Beach, Byron Bay

Is it on the rebates, also, is it also in-between the frames?

Developing technique, what kind of tank. Are we looking at a negative scan, or a print scan?

To answer your question, I have not experienced this.

Re: Brachina Gorge

Very nice, would like to see the original, it looks incredibly detailed. Last time we walked Brachina Gorge, which was around sunrise in late July, we spotted a Yellow Footed rock wallaby. As we were travelling with my Sister in-law and her husband from Germany, hanging around for pictures was secon...
