    Maybe you just call the series "Vallée du Rhône"?
    You document with your pictures. Well, it's my sugestion, that this is your primary goal. So, beside your shooting/processing style, the region is the footprint in your pictures. It may be ordinary for you, but it is not for others.
    I have the taste of apricots on my tongue, when I look at this picture.

    Not sure whether this can still enter in the hydro-electric power plants series, or whether I should start a series on highways and the rest areas.

    About the latest shots: Ladys and Gentlemen, you show nice work here. Thanks! Sadly I don't have much time at the moment for a revanche.

    Thank you Annna, I guess so!

    It's funny I knew the shot of the cup and the tablecloth were a bit of a cliché when I snapped them....but those BIG coloured dots were staring me right back in the face for 20 minutes while I supped my tea...I just found myself automatically reaching for my camera, I guess I must have been under some kind of hypnotic spell

    Seb is tasting apricots, with your last image, so well done yourself!

    Lucille, many thanks you are very kind...The quality of work from others around here has always been high IMHO and never more so than lately...I just try and keep up!

    "Young man" - If there was a multiple Like/Thanks button I would have hit it

    ^^^Always admire your cars beautifully processed in colour, a nice change to see to see you take a different approach in monochrome with an aged look to it...It definitely suits that paricular image I feel^^^

    Maybe there is a need for an explanation for my strange comment. I connect view and taste very fast. The valais is quite famous for its tasty apricots and it's season at the moment.

    To your pictures Barry: The positions of the two peoples are well chosen on the first. Wonderful processing.

    Well, but then all my pictures would be in that series :-). So not a useful way to classify and separate them.

    Concerning apricots : you have to drive a little further than that to find them, this is the region of the "chataignes" (Kastanien ? In German and perhaps marroons ? In English)

    Barry, you are spoiling us this evening !

    I like the "Secret Garden" picture very much. The bleach treatment is just right and the tones are beautiful, rendering a 3D effect. You have captured the essence of that statue.
    By contrast the turquoise tint of the last one is a bit too much for my taste.

    Of the flowers pictures, I like the Buckland Monachorum the most : the light is just fantastic, the processing perfect and those long plants are always very decorative.

    Well, it's a bit early in the season for the grapes : it will last at least two-three months before they are ripe. :-) but you are welcome at that time :-)

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    IMO the Secret Garden series is an exceptional accomplishment! I hope you'll shoot more there, not because the images you've shown so far are inadequate, but because it seems to be one of those 'magical places' whose potential takes time to fulfill.

    As to toning, it's a pleasure to see so much experimentation. But my idea - if you don't mind my planning your future for you - is to pick the one toning that works best for the series, and make a lovely portfolio box that opens to reveal the Secret Garden. (Going all the way: perhaps the cover is bookbinder's cloth that matches or complements the toning.)

    Or maybe you'd already thought of something like that, without needing my encouragement/interference?

    Just my three cents/thruppence; apologies if overbearing.

    Thank you Kirk you are very kind , I never find you overbearing but instead always helpful, insightful and encouraging + You are of course right in this instance, I should have perhaps stuck with one kind of toning so the series flowed harmoniously a bit better...Truth be told, I do like experimenting as you may have gathered by now I like seeing what does and doesn't work + The fact I have myself a new PC and monitor after many years of living in the dark ages so to speak, I can now see some of my shortcomings of what I was doing wrongly in the past (typically over sharpening and some really weird colour images...I'm sure it was pretty obvious to others but I was pretty much blissfully unaware up to a certain point)...The Eizo makes a BIG difference to me, in how I now process my images and goes some way to helping with my red and green colour blindness.
    Your 35mm and 50mm fast WO B&W images have encouraged me to shoot a bit more WO in the landscape rather than always automatically stop down the aperture, which is what I have been doing for many years now...It doesn't always work but sometimes it does!...which is when I find it gratifying...Thanks

    I have punched up the colours and stopped down the aperture in the shot below, so that one maybe not to your liking...Cheers Barry

    This is a 100% crop of a shot I made yesterday with new 70-300 G.
    Even at 300mm the sea gull was quite small in the frame.
    Processing in Lightroom included reducing highlight and shadows along with some clarity and sharpening.

    Focus was set to continuous. F8.0 ISO 250 and 1/640. Camera was in Av with Auto ISO that's what dictated the 250 ISO and the shutter speed.

    Much better than I expected. Will be interesting to see how camera/lens combo works with reasonable action when subject fills the frame.

    Barry, I've really enjoyed your 'secret garden' series. As Kirk said perhaps a uniform treatment would be even more enticing. Nevertheless, a great set of images. Works so much better in monchrome.

    David this is interesting. I do not have a long lens to go with my Sony and usually take my Canon gear on wildlife trips. I am usually reluctant to use an adapted lens for reasons of slow AF. It looks like in the near future we may have more such lenses from Sony that would pair well with the the current A7 series or the next version.

    Another interesting option would be to compare this lens with the Canon equivalent on a 7D2 vs the a6300. From what I hear, this lens is super sharp and if you put it on a Sony body capable of fast AF and rapid fire, it would work great for action shots, albeit limited at present to the APS-C format.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Sorry, I have to comment a little bit. But, only because I enjoy it every morning to look at this thread.

    Anna, I'm with Pradeep with your Power Plant series. On the last two presented shots, the first one is much better. Although it would be nice to have it without the rail in the front but with more of the hill with the watertubes . The second one is closer, but does not has more information to the first shot. Except the roof behind the trees in the lower left part. I'm wondering what this is...

    Barry, I prefer the Buckland Monachorum and the Wild Flower series over the secret garden. Your new display was a good investment. The colors and contrasts are perfectly set. I couldn't resist to go back to some of the pics a few times. But may you post the picture in portrait format with a lower resolution in the future? I have to scroll on these quite a bit on my 2560x1440 display (e.g. Secret Garden VI). The landscape format is perfect as it is.

    Werner, thanks for all the nice shots of the Tessin in the last weeks. The last one is a very nice BW.

    Lucille, nice new approach with the BW-look. I love your car-pics and your special workflow, but on this shot the new processing was a good descision.

    SamSS and Landscapelover, thanks for the Yellowstone shots. Need to put this place on my travel-list (beside Barrys Neighbourhood).

    There was a beautiful light this evening, so I couldn't resist.. for a change I put the castles in the lower left, so one can see the vineyards hanging down from the slopes on the left.

    Nice old stones Barry with a curious opening under that arch and just a ray of light to attract attention on the canons in the background. Beautifully composed as usual.

    No need to apologize, Barry... it is just our usual hour. :-)

    PS : I'm interested by your new PC computer because I've got some problems with mine. May be that I'll send you a private mail to-morrow.

    Dear Barry: I am a huge fan of your work, and look forward to seeing it every day...but...please: stop messing with the color.
    Just share straightforward images like the garden above...Looking forward to seeing more.

    Many thanks guys, your kind comments are very most appreciated

    Roy...I think you are probably right....the trouble is I can't bring myself to stop experimenting (well not completely that is! )...I'm sure people love or hate what I do at times ...I'm sure at times I do spoil a perfectly decent image that should have best been left alone...Thanks again.

    Barry,

    Thank your so much for your mail. I answered it earlier this evening.

    Now a picture from the "unremarkable boroughs and suburbs" series :

    Test shots with the Sigma 70mm f/2.8 macro lens mounted on the A7r-FS (with CC filter on the lens) via the Sigma MC-11 adapter. MF only with this lens (it tries to AF but doesn't make it). I'll try also with the A6300 that has PDAF, but want to use it mainly with a Sigma SDQ.

    Roy,

    Like you, I'm also a fan of Barry's work and I always look forward to seeing his pictures too. While I can appreciate where you're coming from, creativity is, IMHO, something we should embrace, not shy away from. I often find inspiration in a picture where the photographer has given us an alternate view of a scene we'd normally expect to see "as shot". Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but it allows us to look at things a bit differently, and I think this is a good thing.

    I'm drawn to Barry's 'straightforward' images just as you are but also appreciate and enjoy when he, and other gifted photographers here, shares work that might be considered to be just a bit left of center.

    my 2 cents

    Wow, some really nice pictures in the recent days. A recent attempt from me - this is at a local beach here in Lynnwood (to get where, interestingly, you go through a nice little 1.5 hike through the woods):

    Thank you Doug, that pretty much is the way I feel...I do realize what I produce when I experiment is not necessarily everybody's cup of tea so to speak and that I "don't" pull it off every time so I do understand what Roy is saying!...But then I don't want to limit what I do to just straightforward record photography as I would quickly tire of doing just that

    The word "Pictorialism" and the link is worth a read https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pictorialism for anybody who is interested in the history of photography.
    In particular the "Linked Ring" https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Linked_Ring.

    Cheers Barry

    Edit: Ute and Anil - Lovely evening time landscape images guys, nicely seen and executed.
