    I find the water reflections fascinating; I would be tempted to print an image with only the water. I am mystified by the orange strip on the left side of the reflection. I can not find its origin in the skyline.

    When the next snow fall hits, we should be in full fall color swing. I can't wait.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Jack,
    I was just joking about the workshop in Zion,
    I myself probably could not make the journey and Im in pretty good shape.
    Though I would love to go down there one day with another photographer who has done the journey before.

You can enter from above, but there is a section you need to rope down, so it requires some basic rock climbing gear and expertise. On the upside, you get images that most folks never will. Fall when the aspens turn is the best time IMHO, though there are not many trees in the gorge area itself -- but the water and Sun are lower and the light is quite nice. I pack my gear in kayaking "dry bags" and in turn put those in a proper trekking back-pack with support -- it is easy to fall in that little river... Boots with felt creeper soles help grip the slick river rocks, and a wading staff can provide added stability. It's a worthwhile excursion, but do it with a buddy or two for safety and carry some emergency gear for an unplanned overnight.

    Christopher, I like the muted color and light in your images. All nice images but the vertical is my favorite.

    It is interesting to see the different approaches to lighting and color in this forum. Very different but most are natural looking as well.

    Kudos!
    Thx a lot. It was an amazing time ins Sydney and I had a week of brilliant weather. Many different conditions. Shnaghai wasn't that great and the muted colors from the third image, are pretty much real. There was only done some small processing. It was extremly hazy. I just whished I had more time traveling, but than again I currently can't keep up with processing ;-)

    The Orange comes from the "street" lamp, which looks more like a huge street lamp. It was very bright.

    Here is another one from Sydney. (and yes I'm currently trying to finish all images from that tripo)


    Just a few days later, but there was quite a storm coming.

    Nice shot. I portrait perspective captures the magnitude of the mountains well. I'm hoping fall is late there this year so I can make it out there. Doesn't seem to be the case though.

    Nice shots Steven. How come you get to live in these cool places? How's the new system? Here is one from last summer. An approaching storm in the Badlands, SD. Nothing special, but what interests me are the cloud patterns. I've seen faces in clouds before, but this one seems devilish.

    nothing special? Well you took it, you're a biased critic . It is both beautiful and disturbing. Very nice!

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Thanks Paul and Jack. I must say given the terrain and weather I should have been able to do better.
    Another cloud shot: There was a front that moved through yesterday (W. New York). As Bill and anyone who spends time on the Great Lakes knows, weather systems can appear rapidly and with considerable violence. The incoming front pictured below was taken yesterday around 7 pm (645D, 35mm). When I took this there was a slight breeze and a temperature of about 70 F; within a few minutes, winds were around 35mph accompanied by rain and temperature drops. I'm glad I wasn't on a boat
    Note the downdraft causing a lighter colored ripple in the water ahead of the cloud.

    First pic I've posted here. Hopefully done so correctly.

    This photo could have benefitted from tilt-shift for better perspective management of the picture frames, so working on another edit to try and remedy this - but for now, here's Marianna...

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Couldn't sleep so working on some images from Thursday night. The reds are terrific right now here in Utah. We have sort of a double fall here. Reds pop sometime in Sept. and as they peak and then fade, the yellows of aspens start to shine into October. (and of course, after the mountains lose their color, you can head to places like Zions in late Oct or early Nov and still get some great color). Here are a couple of ones I like so far ...

    I love the fall shots Wayne. I envy you folks in the west -great natural features in every direction. Great cloud shots Bill. We don't have the mountains or deserts, but we do get fabulous cloud formations in the east.
    Thanks for all the kind comments. Here’s another from last week, after the front passed through. A manual stitch of two images. Very surreal color, which I may have overdone in post.

    Tom.

    Thanks Bob, I've been hanging around for about a week waiting for the marine layer to move on but it keeps hanging around. This was the first decent morning in several days. I'm giving it one more morning than moving on to Acadia for a day or two.

    Just a few days later, but there was quite a storm coming.

    I like the skyline and clouds together Christopher. Is this a crop or stitch?

    Looks like you took this near the botanical gardens. I thought Sydney was a very approachable city photographically speaking. The parks don't close and shut you out at night either.

    Where you able to get anything from across the coat hanger bridge?

    Thx a lot Ed. The image is stitched out of two images. One for the sky and one for the water. I really loved Sydney. I have a lot more images from a few other points as well. I just haven't had the time to finish all. (Currently visting Boston for a week)

    Re: Fun with MF images

    I have been too ill to keep up, but I have now sent off the pictures for my wife's website. (Rosalind Caplis Dance) but the pictures may not be up till the end of the week. The cartwheel shot was 1/500th no flash and looks OK with slight blur... but due to 400iso and attempts to rectify back lighting the costume is noisy.

    It is interesting that the one shot on the website taken with a Hasselblad looks, to me, so much better that the rest,,, in spite of having been downsized to 2MB.

    I think any large flash used at a small percentage of it's maximum power gives a short flash.

    The H4D-40 is much better than my H4D-60, and it would be nice to have both...

    A tech cam would be good for this shot?

    I have used my H4D-60 for dancers with my 4 head studio flash system, and should be able to use it with my 4 head Metz system.

    PS I have a diagnosis, and I am booked in for a Cardioversion on 6th October.

    With the Profoto Pro8a, you are looking at 20 flashes per second or 1/12000th second per burst.

    It was that incredibly fast flash speed that freezes her, not the H4D-40.

    Hope that helps.
