Re: A gully to the Brindabellas

Thanks heaps for the feedback, guys! Walter, yes it's the GD3WH, a lot less compact than your lefoto (and the arca Swiss cube, which I'd have loved!) But is doing the job. The quick release for large scale adjustments Ali's really, really good and thr gear is fine... levelling is a totally different...

A gully to the Brindabellas

This was yesterday arvo, with my new Benro geared head... it is a great addition to the kit. Looking forward to having it on hand with buildings in frame.

I've not been out and about much, but am trying to keep on with the practice.

Re: Pandani leaves and Lichen

Mark, these are right up my alley, as usual. The image gives me a sense of protection, maybe because of its obvious proximity.

The Provia (on my monitor here) renders this exactly as I remember seeing them, especially the moss colour.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Reciprocity Factor (Ilford)

I don't have any advice here, Mick, but wanted to say that it sounds a fun and worthwhile project.... the one moment of the year that sun hits the south facing wall of a building! Very cool, and it should be celebrated!

Re: Centre Grad Filters Reference

Thanks Walter. I had looked at these when choosing a shorter lens and ended up with the Fuji SW 90 in part because I wanted to avoid centre gradient filters and had read that mostly it didnt need one... I might see if I can run some analysis on images to see what sort of fall off is evident without.

Re: More Fujifilm ending

Yeah, right! I never used acros, but acros ii is expensive and (for me) only decent. I like 160ns in 120 though, especially for portraits, its a nice alternative to portra 160.

I will probably get some e6 and velvia 4x5.
I'd hate to day that I missed out on ever shooting an LF landscape on velvia!

Re: In Praise Of Minor White

Really cool that you share that experience :) A mate of mine makes her living shooting homes for magazines and books and I hope (when we can travel interstate again) to take my camera down to her and let her play with it to see what was possible with these cameras. For what its worth, the first came...
