Re: Lake Jindabyne, Drowned Trees

Thanks Walter. Beyond reliable control of equipment and materials I reckon nine tenths of photography is having the energy to recognise and pursue evocative subject matter. I was supposed to be mountain climbing on this day, sky looked bad, went to Jinbabyne instead, lucky choice.

Re: Outer Harbour Fortification Pattern

Isn't it marvellous that shadows, even though they are the absence of something, can carry such pictorial eloquence. Walter, you are the master of shadows. I compare this picture to White House & Bollards, Crookwell, N.S.W. Both feature shadows, both different, both good.

Re: Water In Lake George ACT

Is it the view from the Badcoe VC Rest Area? Thanks Walter for taking this photograph to remind us all what this view looked like before that serene range of hiils gets covered by hulking great rows of wind-turbines.

Re: Revealed Frescos

I wonder what was the fate of that fresco. A properly painted fresco will last a long time. Witness the marvellous discoveries at Pompeii unearthed after nearly two millennia. If only this Victorian fresco had been revealed in the year 4000 it could have been a National treasure and a site of artist...

Re: The Buddha & The King

An excellent demonstration of "working the subject". Sometimes one shot is not enough even if it is on 8x10. Geez, you were lucky getting a park on the A22 right behind the Flash Trash truck.

Re: The Buddha & The King

Well found Walter ! I used to look for visual surprises by keeping a ready-to-go unfolded 8x10 camera on the back seat of the car and an extended tripod down across the back seat passenger foot well. An exposure within two minutes was possible. But I never spotted anything as quirky as The Buddha &a...

Re: Selfie— PLUS Schneider Super Symmar XL 110mm on 10x8

That's a pretty cheerful compromise if you had to use the SS XL110mm lens because there was room behind to back up. Schneider, in conservative mode, says the lens doesn't cover 8x10. Users say it covers with no room to move and with dark corners but, Walter , I see no dark corners in your picture. D...

Re: Balmain Road Bargains

What an evocative old streetscape. Number 489 looks like a residence above a shop which is still inhabited; see the parcel propping up the front door. The "Building for Sale" theory is probably correct because the latest Google Street View shows another structure in its place. And the terr...

Re: Multicultural Streetscape

The picture at the head of this thread looks better than the "curves" adjusted last one. At least on my screen it does. But I don't understand curves enough to make a helpful comment. I just stick to "levels" with my Photoshop 6 Student Edition and try to match the screen to the ...
