Re: Massive Snow Gum, Charlotte Pass

The closeness to the subject makes the biggest impression, the light falling on the trunk lifts it a lot, but the corners being naturally dark push your eyes towards the trunk, with the background trees giving us the perfect foil to the immense looking trunk. Would we normally see a bit of falloff i...

Re: Fallen Trees, Murdering Creek

Looks like a low contrast day, bush is a hard to photograph subject, the inclusion of these limbs and/or trunk lifts the image enormously. The impact is aided by the dull background, quite a find there Maris.

Re: Garage Portrait Session

Bazz, it is a quite clean picture, which did surprise me. The chair was only around 200mm from the garage door and the positioning of it was designed to hide the central locking device. If you look directly behind her neck, roughly where her clothing starts, you can see the flat steel bar left and r...

Garage Portrait Session

This was a very quick portrait session, I had around 10 minutes from getting the request, to executing the picture; including finding somewhere to photograph. It was an excruciatingly hot and windy day, the only safe haven was the garage. This area was looked at, a chair brought in, the overhead LED...

Re: Zed Cells

Thanks Maris, interesting observation from you about the white bits; I concur. I waited and waited for the quite small window whereby the recessed writing on the front panels were still in shadow, but the edges were in sunlight and therefore highlighting the writing. It was a surprisingly small time...

Zed Cells

These are a pair of flow batteries, for storing solar generated energy for use when the sun isn't shining. In this outdoor enclosed format they are called a Zcell battery, if they are naked and installed in some kind of weatherproofed shelving arrangement, they are called ZBM batteries Shen Hao HZX4...

Re: Rocks and Kelp, Wooli River.

Now that is quite striking, really draws you in. Firstly for the subject, secondly for the technical execution.

Very nice Maris.

Re: Dandelions in Vase.

Almost looks like a negative, love the glass behind the vase; looks like wet sand rippled by water.

Compelling enough to want a longer look.

Re: Late Fall, Lake Jindabyne.

As I scrolled down the picture after opening this thread, I saw the floating leaves and immediately thought, filter, red or deep orange? I then read your text and noted it was a red, I think use of that filter really lifts this. I've never read that Thoreau excerpt before, certainly fits this scene....

Re: Sunbakers, Noosa.

Great positioning of the subjects, the wave is good, but I think the position of his hat is perfect. Its angle to the sun, the shadow underneath and of course, the brightness of the hat itself. Which in turn, draws you in to the subjects themselves.
