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.

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.

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: Fence Line, Wilpena Pound, Sunset.

Very nice Maris, after the brutal cropping on the right side, did you consider further cropping from the top and bottom?

Nice lens, must be in a big shutter, or are you using a top hat? :o
