Re: 18-mile Hole, Cann River

Walter, what a bugger!!! I remember a couple of years ago when your van was broken into and a veritable ute-load of your LF gear stolen, nothing of which was ever recovered. I'm sure you'll hang in there, as nothing seems to phase you. But it's time you got a few breaks. Cheers.

Re: 18-mile Hole, Cann River

Thanks Mick and Walter. I love that thought, Walter - 'putting four lines around a slice of the world!' Yes, it's what we do, but I've NEVER thought of it like that. It strikes me as an interesting way of approaching visualisation. And oh, how I pine for the days when I could tote an 8x10 - and a mo...

18-mile Hole, Cann River

Inspired by Maris' Cataract, Mossman River recently, I dug this one out - a small fall and swimming hole on the Can River in East Gippsland. There's something very soothing to the soul, I think, in water and waterfalls, probably my favourite subjects to photograph. This one from 1986 was on 8x10 FP4...

Re: Valleys and Dam

Hehe, I think Adobe Lightroom was supposed to be a sort of digital light box for negative/tranny viewing/organising/slightly modifying and an alternative to Photoshop. I think it became very popular. For me, I hate anything to do with computers in image processing, but like many have come to realise...

Re: Valleys and Dam

Mick, I was going to respond to this image the other day, partly in reference to Gimp, but with a mention for Darktable. But since you seemed committed to Gimp I bailed out of the post. Having read what you want to do, I reckon Darktable is probably more suitable for you, and easier to learn. It's a...

That's great, Walter. Now I see it I understand how well the set-up will work. I'm thrilled for you. Good hunting!

Re: Fern gully, Toolangi

One of my favourite forest types and beautifully seen and executed by you, Mark. This is why we do LF B&W.

Re: Cooloothin Creek Swimming Hole

It's hard to understand some people. Who would want to swim in a dirty and dangerous spot like that when there are pristine beaches nearby? A worthy subject for photography, though. I notice you used Fomapan 200 Maris. It seems to perform well enough. Was the light rather flat? I have a fresh box of...

Re: Warehouse Wall and Door

Nevertheless the image creates a feeling of excitement with its strong horizontals and verticals and the high contrast light. And the slanting shadows of the lights above the door modified by the corrugations provide interesting geometrical counterpoint. A very worthy subject to photograph, Maris, a...

Re: Tales of a mis-spent retirement?

Hi Walter, good to hear from you and hope you're doing well. No it's not a Sinar panel. It turned out to be 118mm square. I was concerned about bellows flare/vignetting and wanted a decent size all round to prevent it, consistent with keeping the overall size of the camera as low as possible. So the...
