Re: Backlit Weeds, Soft Focus

That is amazing and a bit scary... and I suppose quite costly.

Sorry to hear about the bellows, but this image is very dreamy and I like it.

Re: Charlotte Pass, Autumn Herbs

Nice one, Maris!

Unmistakably Charlotte Pass... what a place! Nice job capturing it.

The result seems very smooth to me, and i don't miss the top corners one bit :)

Do you remember which month this was taken in?

Re: Rock shelter

Something happening here, John, that gives me a sense of actually being under the overhang which was not what happened with the Foma version. That may well be aided by association of the overhang with the detail in the boulders at the base of the stump which seems a bit of an abyss with Foma by com...

Re: Rock shelter

Thanks Walter! Interesting to hear about your progress with technique there. Here is the same image on ektar, same metering technique. Interested to hear anyone's thoughts on the comparative dynamic range in the two shots? The ektar seems to at least keep up with and possibly eclipse the foma? https...

Rock shelter

This was about as good a test as I could think of for metering testing, and I don't mind its as an image either. I took a spot off one of the darker streaks in the cave, set it as shadow and then a spot off the dead tree trunk as highlight and averaged them (with the average button :) ). Anyway, I d...

Re: Fagan Park Detritus

I have to admit to not being able to tell the difference between real and "arranged" historic things such as these! Very interesting to read about the giveaways, though :)
I like the composure here, Walter, and for whatever reason it look a hot day to me.

Re: Dutch Iris

Thanks Walter, will do. And yes, I see other images of this sort where a bit of softness plays well with tone gradient, that's a really good point... a lot to think about under the dark cloth! Hope you're having a good week mate. Edit: Just had a look, his images are wonderful. I already find myself...

Dutch Iris

These things grow like crazy on our driveway. They are pretty nice!! I tried for a "middle-ground" focus point on this very 3D subject, the result being a not super sharp anywhere image! But its about what I was hoping for in tone. Side note: still waiting on some bits for the enlarging pr...

Re: Inspirations

I think this is a great idea for a thread, RoganJosh! I'm really just finding my way at the moment and wouldn't be able to definitively point to any particular inspiration. That said, I too enjoy a bit of a mess :) I wonder if the endless supply of amateur images on offer through instagram and flick...
