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: Battered Iron Fence, Blackall

Perfect timing with regard to shadow and highlights on the actual fence; very nice work there Maris.

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...

I don't think so, but thank you anyway.

Posthumously someone may think so, but I'm not in a hurry to let that happen. :mrgreen:

Re: Paperbark Forms, Lake Weyba.

Maris, the ever so slight edge falloff, has worked to your great advantage here. With all of the interesting stuff having the right kind of detail and lightness nearer the central part, while the edges seem to look as though they have been skillfully airbrushed into a perfect seamless vignette maski...

Re: Tarraville Church

Maris, interesting observation of yours there. I did indeed select the 250mm lens to isolate the building from it's surrounds, with the knowledge that I would need to be quite a bit further away from the actual building. Inclusion of the fence, for whatever reason seemed important to me. I hadn't th...

Re: Tarraville Church

WT, I think you will find it an interesting little church. The signs, which are just out of sight in my image, tell quite the interesting story.

Yes I have thought of making a print of this for a house wall hanging, but that may never eventuate as I have quite a few ahead of this negative.

Re: Tarraville Church

Well unless you really look for it, one doesn't see it as you pass by/through this village. It is on an L shaped road and not one where you would normally go along.
