Re: A gully to the Brindabellas

That's an artful and subtle composition. The bottom of the picture is securely weighted with that big old decayed log stopping the viewer falling down the gully. Then, on the way to the Brindabellas, the eye is tripped up by that tiny but bright triangle of water. Cotter River? Nice surprise.

Re: Plan View Of Landscaped Courtyard

Wow, what a dizzying perspective. And to add to the vertigo I think that the picture as seen on my monitor is upside down. Walter, did you do this with cunning intent?

Re: An Unusual Window

Go to picture #4 and look at it. The pointy window in the back wall is counterbalanced by the slash of light across the table in the foreground. Then the tiny table uses a pointed leg to cast a pointed shadow to divide that same slash of light. Coincidence? I don't think so. To further entertain the...

Re: Pandani leaves and Lichen

Evocative subject matter, very gnarly, makes eyesight worthwhile. Here's a hard question: Since I have not made a colour picture in over forty years this pair of Pandani leaves and Lichen challenges me to pick one but I'm not sure how. Both look very good. What criteria does the colour photographer ...

Re: Form + Pattern

Brilliant visual invention! And Eleni proves form follows function, not. That witty and well worn, well ventilated, party dress could be leather or even, gosh, rubber. What else is in the Walter Glover wardrobe props collection?

Re: Reciprocity Factor (Ilford)

Mick , I reckon photographing a low light scene using film that is well into reciprocity failure is not easy. I've never completely succeeded in transforming a dim scene into what looks like a fully lit scene. The problem is that the areas of the film that see dark parts of the subject experience r...

Re: 'UNDERWATER' Cinema Alley, Wetherill Park, N.S.W.

What a spectacular rarity: upside down Scheimpfug! I've seen texts that suggest the roofs of caves are suitable for this unusual camera movement but in practice the top of a cave is usually so dark that focus is irrelevant. Fortunately users of Speed and Crown Graphic cameras have reverse Scheimpflu...

Re: Fuji Instax Film on a 4x5 camera

I'm surprised that Marcus is so unsure of his framing, focus, and exposure that he is using the Lomography Graflok 4X5 Instant Back as a proofing device. Outdoor settings in soft light are not that tricky. The future of this gadget, I predict, will be the production of final original works. The phot...

Re: An Icon

Excellent city lights Walter , beaut reflections in the water, but the bridge seen in very "steep perspective" (ultra wide angle lens?) is backed by one of the best sky wedges ever. From hot orange in the lower right corner to black in the upper left and every nuance of colour and tone in ...
