Re: Nothofagus and Richea

Thanks, RoganJosh. The Provia is my choice too. Natural and realistic colour reproduction of film is a black hole of chaos shooting in the wilds rather than the controlled environment of a studio. In this case, the Ektar doesn't really convey the depth of the forest. The colour balance is good but f...

Re: Pandani leaves and Lichen

Thank you all for your observations. Walter, I often get that same feeling working amongst the Richeas, there is a real primordial quality about them. The dead leaves of the pandani come in such a variety of forms, when the edges fray some look distinctly like the feathers of an ancient bird. Mick, ...

Pandani leaves and Lichen

Prompted by the recent discussion on the demise of Velvia 50 sheet film, two images from early this year.

Re: More Fujifilm ending

Thanks for sharing your insights, Mick. Your observations are particularly helpful to understanding the future of film coating and manufacturing given how little information the "big two" are prepared to release.

Re: Is The Schneider Super Angulon XL 47mm 1:5.6 Any Good?

Walter, always great to see your colour work. Like you I’ve used both the 58 and the 47 SA XLs. Imho definitely both lenses where a centre filter is a must. The centre filters have never been particularly cheap but seem to have really hiked in recent years. The IIIc is the filter designed for the 47...

Re: North West Tasmania

Thank you, Walter. I’ve tried to highlight the quality of light in this. Even though the air is so clear and it was very sunny, the light in Tasmania has a softness about it which we just don’t get on the mainland with the sun higher overhead. The ground underfoot was equally uneven I’m afraid, extr...

Re: Old train

Great photographs, John. They really capture the decay and passage of time well. It looks like you have a wealth of potential subject matter for details too if that takes your fancy. Just further to Walter's comment regarding Ektar, I find a useful filter to have on hand is an 81b or similar. Ektar ...

Re: Is Colour Out Of Bounds?

It's never out of bounds for me, Walter. A beautifully crafted 8x10 transparency is a work of art all of its own. The initial simplicity of the image reveals layers of detail when you take the time to to explore the image.
