  3. I just took this last Saturday morning near the little town of Lone Pine and Mount Whitney, which you can see in the background. The area is referred to as the Alabama Hills and is famous for many movie shoots. It was somewhat hazy due to the many fires that burned and are still burning in California. gb

I missed a lot more pics than with the D5 and AF-S 500mm f/5.6 Pf on yesterday's session, but it's ok. 1 aZ6N_6663 by Aguinaldo Tinoco de Paula, no Flickr 2 aZ6N_6506 by Aguinaldo Tinoco de Paula, no Flickr 3 aZ6N_6646 by Aguinaldo Tinoco de Paula, no Flickr 4 aZ6N_6552 by Aguinaldo Tinoco de Paula, no Flickr 5 aZ6N_6649 by Aguinaldo Tinoco de Paula, no Flickr 6 aZ6N_6424 by Aguinaldo Tinoco de Paula, no

  6. I love hiking and these four are special, because they were in volcanoes. 1- Villarica (Chile): made in 2002 on a motorcycle trip. With the acrophobia that I developed I would hardly do it again. The volcano is active, as seen by the smoke. Erupted last time in 2015; 2- Etna (Sicily): 2015. I went up twice, once on the south side and once on the north side. Active too. Last eruption in 2019; 3- Vesuvius (Napoli) 2015. Historical importance, as it devastated Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD. Last eruption in 1944; 4- Gran Catere (Vulcano Island, Aeolian ) 2015. Active. Last eruption in

  11. One of the richest safaris I ever did to Sabi Sabi as far as image and video quality went was the 2017 trip. I still have hours of video clips that I haven't even looked at yet. Not to mention lots of images that didn't get processed because I only looked at the good ones first, forgetting a lot of the others that were pretty decent too. Anyway, this is a shot of a massive giraffe falling foul of a bad tempered male elephant. Also included is a short video clip showing what happened next.

  12. Today I shot this series of images during a visit to a vintage shop. The models were very patient and even didn't mind me using a small amount amount of on-board fill flash which is one of the reasons I like the E-M10 series a lot. Olympus E-M10II + Olympus 25mm 1.8 (imo the best of the 17/25/45mm f1.8 trio) 1. 2. 3. 4.

  14. As we move through spring and restrictions are starting to ease, I've had a a bit more opportunity to get out and about. As a personal challenge, I thought I would try some 'street' style photography. So I stuck the 27 f/2.8 on my Fuji X-E3 and headed out. Two outings actually, one in the city while I had a bit of time to spare before a meeting and then the other was a suburban walk nearer home. First part was relatively easy - getting the look. Started with the Fuji Across film simulation and then added 'Shadows' +4. The second part was not quite as easy. I think my normal t

  18. The notch on the bottom is for hanging this device from a string. Maybe hang it from a string, shine a laser pen into it along the string's axis, it then projects a 90 degree image to either the right or the left. Useful for making sure your foundations are at 90 degree angles.

  19. For the last few years I have applied Yogi Berra's famous words to Venice: "Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded."But Covid has changed that, along with so many other things. We took advantage of a window of opportunity last month to visit Venice with few tourists and no cruise ships.To start with, here are a couple of Venetian photographers.1. Photographer in action.2. Photographer inaction.

  24. Recently I was sent a free license code for Exposure X6, which is an editing program that has been around for quite a long time. I think I may have reviewed the original program well over 10 years ago. At that time the company was called Alien Skin, but now they are simply known as Exposure. I guess it fits. The application has certainly changed quite a lot over the years, now includes layering a-la Photoshop, as well as a plethora of presets for a number of B&W and colour film simulations, not to mention a bunch of other somewhat gimmicky things too. I will do a proper write

  25. Alan, you are right, some bits of Melbourne don't change - others do. I'm sure you would be familiar with the area around the elevated rail picture too - it is replacing the level crossing at the top of Grange Road near the corner with Dandenong Road. I'm sure you will have passed that crossing many times when you were based in Ormond. Dallas, the motorway picture has me thinking of trying something else I tend not to do - I'm wondering about cloning out the VW Golf in the bottom right circle. Maybe even just moving it back 10m up the road so it is partially ob

  27. No, this system is very much self-contained. The problems arise when the developer community don’t stay in sync with the parent program, which is what has been happening with the custom theme in this most recent update. IPS make changes to the underlying codes that will sometimes cause headaches for add-ons. This is what seems to have been the problem recently. Most of the things that were bugging me I have fixed with custom CSS code, but it’s still not quite right.

  30. The city is built on wooden piles, some a thousand years old. The ground levels in the main buildings are fine, but some of the back canals are a bit shabby. Installing damp proof membranes and concrete has not been done except perhaps in the occasional place, and is not really practicable. But the city still stands as a tribute to the original builders. This October the new flood barrier was raised for the first time to prevent a flood, and appears to have been effective. This is very good news.

  32. It is basically looking at the presence of moisture in the brickwork over a range of buildings and comments that most studies only look at one building at a time. They identify that damp is present with walls wet to a level of about 2m above sea level and damp for another 1m beyond that. It doesn’t say much about actually dealing with that damp. From what I recall of various movies and films I’ve seen, the ground level always seems to be a bit rough and the smarter parts are in higher levels, which would make sense. From a practical level, the use of concrete below ground and wa

  33. Sounds like the week commencing 12 October is going to be an interesting one. It’s the rumoured date for the latest iPhone and also a few camera related announcements, including something from Fuji and some updates to the Nikon Z range. And if we’re lucky, the week will end with the easing of some more of Melbourne’s lockdown restrictions.

  38. Gotta get down and dirty on the ground to be a true professional! Tasmania still has closed borders, but otherwise there's no hiding around here anymore, no community-transmitted cases for months now, things pretty much back to normal. I took this photo at New Norfolk Market on Saturday a couple of weeks ago:

  42. Merling, I like your picture - really nice! My first thought was about the colour of the flower, the great colour contrasts and the impressive contrast in sharpness between the flower and the surroundings. And I like the bokeh in this shot... That 90mm is quite a lens 😉 Maybe I wished for a slightly brightened center of the flower, the details there are merely unvisible for me, but it is the center of the picture. And for me the yellow "thing" at the right is a bit disturbing - it catches to much interest I think. Thanks for sharing!

  43. For a temporary theme things are generally looking good. Only thing I’m not sure about is the use of red on the articles list page - something a bit more subtle would be better. interesting to see a stats pull down appearing in the posts.

  46. I had a moment recently! And a Z7 winged it’s way to my door, the idea being to have more elbow room for cropping and straightening and associated Image manipulation, my Z6 went in PX! Obviously the differences to the Z6 is mainly the sensor, handling and ergonomics are for all practical purposes are identical, but it seems to me that the Z7 is a bit faster in operation, quite subjective but that is my impression so far. Seems snappier!Of course I, benefit from all my lenses and accessories easily fit the new body.Can’t really justify the expense, but what the hell you only live once! Plus I g
