Re: Hauled Out Boat, Lake Cootharaba

Ha, that is interesting.

I saw the tree and figured you had worked to include it, but until you mentioned the rock, I was oblivious to it. Although I presume I knew it was there, I just didn't notice it.

Re: Hauled Out Boat, Lake Cootharaba

I really like this, so many interpretations are possible, more so when printing. Grey day, grey subject, grey........................... very nice to see the lift you have given to the boat when printing. Have you thought of making it an enclosed landscape? As in, removing the sky and having the onl...

Re: Fern gully, Toolangi

Really good, makes me think I'll head there next week if isolation restrictions are loosened. In this instance the darkening of the corners enhances the image, just. The overall evenness is brilliantly handled, with the central fern tree very well placed; so nice to see something like this. Rogan Jo...

Re: Doug Hall at Imagery Gallery

Pretty damned good, I reckon. The use of the slightly longer focal length seems to have helped, as does the almost dark appearance of everything except his face and to a lesser degree, his shirt. I have only done a couple of portraits using the same technique, but haven't gotten anything as good as ...

Re: Power Box, Noon Sunlight

Maris, you have rendered the rendering quite well........ :mrgreen: The power box lid itself is something else again; really well done. Reminds me of all the times I've waited for the noon sun to do the same to brick buildings and other like structures. Patience is a virtue, you must have been virtu...

Re: Connie

Quite an arresting portrait, you certainly had my attention from the get go.

Looks like you were quite close and used a fairly wide aperture, something like f/8 maybe?

Re: My Mother's Kitchen

Very well chosen lighting, meaning you left the light just above the camera off, with the far light on to highlight the dining room. The darkened corners of the image look perfect, nothing like having help from the lens itself, eh? :D That kitchen certainly looks like many kitchens I have lived in, ...

Re: Warehouse Wall and Door

Two lights, two drums, two stacks of material, one door; what a find!

You have enhanced this no end with your timing to get the play of light and shadow done to perfection.

Re: Photographer at Work, Noosa.

You are right, very nice range of tones, could almost do with a slight contrast kick; if one was so inclined. At times I have been amazed at how quickly I sometimes set my 4x5" camera up, yet other times I seem to take forever. I can very well understand your friend's reticence as he contemplat...
