Re: Some more from Errinundra

These really are nice, the Kowa ones are pretty decent as well. In 1991 we were in Western Australia on a motorcycle, we dropped in on a person with whom I had been exchanging prints. His eyesight was failing him, but his work with his Kowa was outstanding. I really thought about getting one, but it...

Re: Result Creek Falls

Thanks for that Barry. Have you tried E72? It is (apparently*) a more environmentally alternative version; I've been using it for quite some years now. 750ml Water 50ºC Phenidone 0.3g Sodium Sulphite Anh 45.0g Ascorbic Acid 19.0g Sodium Carbonate Anh 77.0g (or mono version with 90.0g) Potassium Brom...

Re: Result Creek Falls

Interesting comments Barry. I myself was mostly underwhelmed when Ilford came out with their new warmtone paper, somewhere around 2007-2008 I seem to remember. One of the boxes I bought was satin; which some 30 + years ago was my standard paper for portraits as it seemed to have a softening effect t...

Re: Before the bushfires in East Gippsland

Barry, they are all brilliant, but the Mountain Clematis is more brilliant; if you know what I mean.

Quite a nice collection, there must have been some intense trips over some time to gather the images you have shown us.

Re: Boats, Weyba Creek.

Well the Nikon is a 67mm filter size, from memory, but I'm sure the 121mm Super Angulon is bigger, probably 72mm at a guess.

The Nikon would be catered for, but I'm afraid the Schneider wouldn't, unless you want some very serious vignetting. :o

Re: Boats, Weyba Creek.

We'll be flying to Qld late April early May, but that will be to Yandina and a business trip to pick up a new truck for travelling almost anywhere in this continent. Driving straight back to Melbourne to get it registered, so no time for dallying about, plus the camera bag is in Melbourne. It's enti...

Re: Boats, Weyba Creek.

I didn't notice the distortion and after reading your notes, I still don't see any distortion; so to speak. I wonder if they are now under water after the recent rain up there. We just returned from sunny Qld after a very fast up and down trip where we encountered closed highways and buckets and buc...

Re: Park at Wappa Dam, Infrared

Maris, you have chosen the subject very well. Water, goes black, some clear sky, goes black with the white clouds making it more interesting. Lots of green stuff, grass and close trees emanating IR, wide angle lens to get most in focus. I like the central tree bending in the wind. Best of all, proba...

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.
