Re: The Junction, Girraween National Park.

Thanks Mick . Way with words? I had the dubious privilege of going to school, grade one day one, without a word of English. Became reasonably articulate, for a five year old, in about a fortnight but learned mostly from books rather than playground banter. Same personality type inclines toward large...

Re: Sun-bleached Stumps, Charlotte Pass.

Thanks Barry . Sometimes I think Snow Gums are eternal trees. This collection of stumps, a ranger tells me, is the result of a tree loaded up with snow and ice being hit by an intense blizzard. The overweight branches break off and the trunk is overturned and dies. But in the middle of the group is ...

Re: Some more from Errinundra

At the moment I can't think of a better use for eyesight than looking at these wonderful pictures. And what a surprise, a picture from a Kowa Six camera.This poor man's Hasselblad had wonderful lenses and a reputation (undeserved?) for dodgy mechanicals. I almost bought one last century.

Re: Before the bushfires in East Gippsland

There is an honouring of the natural world inherent in making photographs of it. And in the case of large format work, where a big and expensive piece of film gets "burned" in the process, the honouring becomes a virtual sacrament. Barry Kirsten , your pictures certainly reward repeated lo...

Re: Boats, Weyba Creek.

A 65mm wide angle with a centre filter could be an interesting try-out. I occasionally use a Nikkor-SW 65mm f4 on 4x5 and a Schneider Super Angulon 121mm f8 on 8x10 and see lots of fall off. Without having a CF I get plenty of practice in getting the tones nice on the edge of the picture and then bu...

Re: Boats, Weyba Creek.

Greetings Mick . There is a bit of stretch in the bow of the boat but because the lens was a "mild" 90mm wide it's not too conspicuous in a subject that has no straight lines. If I'd used your 65mm lens (and fancy centre filter) the effect would be much more extreme. It's still wet here bu...
