Re: Almitra @ Home

That really is something, the concept is often hard to make it look right, from what one has in your head that is.

I think you and your model have succeeded and then some.

Re: White House & Bollards, Crookwell, N.S.W.

I wouldn't of thought of Jeffrey Smart, except I read your heading.

I find this to be first rate, it's attention grabbing in it's simplicity.

Re: Down-Under Devastation

Big distance between Goulburn and Cardwell; just saying. :D Looks like the render has been lost quite some time ago. I'm drawn to buildings like this one for some strange reason, sometimes I get a good viewpoint easily, other times I struggle to find the right place to plunk the tripod. Good side li...

Re: Homage to Frederick H Evans' "Sea Of Steps"

Walter, in no shape or form, did I wish to convey you may have been infringing on the 1903 photograph. I was in fact interested in the image you chose to show by utilising the objective that you selected, in order to show your version of the scene.

As mentioned, it is to me, a refreshing view.

Re: Homage to Frederick H Evans' "Sea Of Steps"

I suppose the steps were welling up, when you tripped the shutter? :D Always hard to follow something as well known as this photograph is and not feel as though you are doing a cliché of it. The Cazneaux tree in Australia springs to mind. That said, the fact that your version encompasses the overhea...

Re: "Coat Hanger" At Dawn — 29.11.1997

Walter, thanks for the information. I don't think I have ever seen the Harbour bridge from that viewpoint, which I think is superb; well, this image anyway. As for Baltronics, would have to be around 30+ years since I've darkened their doorstep in South Melbourne. I knew one of their staff, Rod, ver...

Re: "Coat Hanger" At Dawn — 29.11.1997

Not knowing Sydney all that well, is this the south side or the north side of the harbour?

Looks quite alright.

Is Baltronics still in business?

Re: Ledge with Arranged Boulders

Been away for a while, picked up a new computer and I couldn't get back into the sight......... :?

Meanwhile, they look pretty good, great contrast, and, stating the obvious, it is definitely a B&W image.

I wonder if the artist came from Kambalda, in Western Australia? :mrgreen:

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.
