Re: Lake Jindabyne, Drowned Poplars.

Thanks Barry Kirsten for your insights on this picture. I first knew these poplar trees when they were in magnificent full leaf. It was sad to see them killed by the imperatives of hydraulic engineering. Lake Jindabyne is the first reservoir to capture the snow-melt delivered by the Thredbo and Snow...

Re: Crossover Hallway

Wow, talk about converging lines and one point perspective! Mick , you have made a brilliant example of the so called "wide angle stretch" while still maintaining rectilinear correctness. That centre-dark filter works a treat in keeping the hallway full of light rather than letting it rend...

Re: Nude with Hat

Thanks Mick for your observations.The hat tricked me up. A person wearing a hat and standing on sunlit ground has some light kicked up towards their face that photographically usable. Not so in the shade of a tree.The hat had to come off to get more light on the model's face and she still came out m...

Re: Sapling and Shadow, Soft Focus.

Thank you Barry Kirsten and Mick Fagan for your encouraging comments. My soft focus lens is a 2.5 dioptre spectacle blank grafted onto the back of a Copal #3 shutter. The red filter takes out the blue rays that I can't focus well but the film is very sensitive to. Light subjects against dark backgro...

Re: My Push Bike

Aha, the fabulous Fujinon f6.3 250mm strikes again! It's the right lens for this subject. Photographing the Road Chief at the same image size with, say, a 135mm lens would render the front wheel much bigger than the rear wheel through forced perspective; an uncomplimentary distortion. Mick , I'm gla...

Re: Moonrise Watchers, Sunshine Beach.

Thanks Barry Kirsten and Mick Fagan for your encouraging words. This moonrise was supposed to be easy and predictable. As usual I set up the day before official full moon so that there is still light in the sky and on the landscape. The online Ephemeris gives me the moon's azimuth so the camera is p...
