    Many thanks Joe, it is indeed a beautiful location...It appeared in the earlier seasons and then seemed to get phased out as the series continued, just as the hotel started needing money being re-spent on it.

    ........it's about time there was an episode where the good doctor was pushed into the harbour and left to drown.
    I admit it does seem a bit surreal that others watch this program so far away from here...What I don't understand is when you say that the Doc isn't normal
    Drown the Doc!...Oh dear, never hopefully!....not why it keeps most of Cornwall employed together with Poldark

    LOL. You mean Doc Martin isn't a reality show? I'm disappointed.

    BTW, I'm in North Carolina sipping Chardonnay.

    Careful Joe ....

    They all will be thinkin that the Carolinas never got back together after the war .... or the Virginias, Dakotas, (Ar)Kansas .... and then there is Tex-Mex. Oh wait thats what we
    have here with our Chardonnay.

    The Doc is ok ... we prefer Morse and Lewis.

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

    I'm a little bit envious about your pictures.
    Framing of the scene and also positioning of people are perfectly implemented. That's why I have to ask: Do you crop often? Do you place/move people in post to your desired position or are those actors you rented?
    I'm sure, you're just a patient man, which take his time to shoot a single picture. But as I'm jealous and impatient, that's why I had to ask.

    Again Barry, thanks for sharing your wonderful work with us.

    Thanks Seb for your kind words and interest...I'm definitely not as patient as I used to be
    and yes I rent at least a dozen actors everyday just to entertain you guys

    Here comes the boring history bit...For a couple of decades I used to shoot 14x11 10x8 & 5x4 film (LF cameras together with MF 6x9 6x7 and 6x6 cameras) and having spent most of those years lugging around a heavy 5 legged alloy Gitzo tripod and then waiting for the light conditions to change outdoors (or not!...and then return back to the scene the next day) or pratting around and adjusting/tweaking studio lights for sets and then only just taking a few polaroids and a couple of sheets of film at a time....I desperately wanted to get back to the freedom of a smaller format and be able to just walkabout unhindered without the need of carrying around a tripod everywhere I go (although I do keep a CF tripod permantly in the boot of the car for should the the occasion arise). I think I have only used a tripod on just 4 pics that I have uploaded here and then only because of using a 10 stop ND filter to slow everything down.
    On the day I went to Marazion (St Michaels Mount) I took 1,262 images (I always shoot Raw and a Jpeg...jpegs for quick evaluation) and try to cover an event by shooting from as many different angles as possible.
    I do sometimes crop (as little as possible) and I do remove (clone out) anything that I think may be destracting fom an image (the odd seagull here or there etc...) but I don't (anylonger) move things around as it's to time consuming to do the job properly.
    Regards the people on the raft I shot 87 Raw images and 87 jpegs in various positions.
    Here is a dropbox link to those 87 SOOC jpegs and the one Raw image that I used in this particular instance....I will leave them up (48 hours) for you or anybody else that wants to download them and have a play about.
    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/y6kpk7puj...5MgAZeT_a?dl=0
    Hope that helps and gives you some insight to what I do and also explains why I do upload several images of the same subject matter as I have so many to choose from
    No need to be jealous, just keep firing away as you have more chances of getting it right
    Cheers Barry

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

    I knew it! You are working with profesional background actors and a whole crew trampling through your beautiful neighbourhood!
    (Would be fun, to do that once with a whole crew (with props, lightning, actors...)!)

    Your truth may be more boring, but it makes your results even more imressive to me. I try shooting the same way (as less crops as possible, without tripod, different angles, clone out, not moving things), with a little difference: my goal is to shoot only one picture of each frame. Even when I shoot action. It ends up in less pictures (obviously), but also in less keepers. On the other hand, it helps me to concentrate on framing. I'm still so used to my analog camera, I think. In the old days, your day at Marazion would ended up in 35 film rolls.

    Thanks for your words and the link. Very helpful.
    Cheers, Sebastian

    Thanks again Seb, you are very kind...Slowing up using LF on a tripod (or any camera for that matter) will teach you to frame better and to consider your subject matter better IMO....Only portraiture and sporting photography do you need to work faster and be a bit more responsive.
    Many years ago I had a close friend (Bill Miles) now sadly departed who taught me well in how to "SEE" and rethink my photography...It helped me enormously and I will be forever in his debt...However I still keep on taking a lot of crap images though

    BTW...When I was shooting 35mm film I would seriously still get through a dozen or two dozen rolls of film on a days outing...my film drying cabinet was switched on permanently

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

    From the series Hydro-electric power plants. I drove up to the highest dam we have here the Grande Dixence. It is 367m high and the highest gravity dam (or weight dam.. well not sure what it is named in English we say "barrage poids" in the world. For a long time, it was simply the highest dam in the world, but lately the Chinese have built higher ones (using another technology, not that of the gravity dam). But it is still the 5th highest dam in the world. Things were as I expected : it doesn't look that impressive and it is difficult to photograph. I do still have a lot of pictures to sort out. but here are a few :

    The dam from below (there are thirteen flags in the middle of the dam at the top which will hopefully give an idea of the scale :


    The dam, Grande Dixence - 20160808_023a7r2i by rrr_hhh, sur Flickr

    The lake behind the dam (it is named le Lac des Dix - the lake of the Ten); it is very long and you are only seeing half of it or less.


    Lac des Dix, Grande Dixence - 20160808_140-Pano-Modifieda7r2i by rrr_hhh, sur Flickr

    Note the water fall on the left shore; here is a nearer view :



    The artificial lake is filled by the water melting from the winter snow or from the glaciers, or by rains. But it is also collecting water from other lateral valleys pumped through a complex network of underground galleries : the waterfall seen in the picture is an artificial one created by the pumped water.
    Last but not least : during the night when electricity is cheap, the water which came down during the day through the penstocks is pumped back up in order to refill the lake and to produce electricity that can be sold at peak times when it is more expensive. This is a heavy infrastructure.. and since the introduction of subsidized renewable electricity coming from the sun or the wind it is no more so profitable.. These huge infrastructures are now more than 50 years old and in need of renovations and costly investment.. but the time is not favorable at all : electricity prices have got down and are now under the cost of production.. So it is a very critical moment, quasi a crisis.

    2006 Pontiac GTO, I don't understand how gas is so high over there, and to think that we complain when it creeps up over here...

    Most other places in the world price petrol—that’s what Commonwealth countries like the UK and Australia call it—much higher than does Estados Unidos. Recent pricing here in South Australia for UL is $1.19/L which equates to a price of $4.52/US gallon (a US gallon is 3.8L, vs 4.546L for an Imperial gallon); Australia joined the nigh-universal decimal system beginning in 1966.

    Note: prices quoted in Australian dollars.

    We made a short trip to the mountains over last weekend. As I had a broken toe, hiking was more moving from bench to bench.

    Seb, what fantastic landscape. You and Annna have such incredible views just on your doorstep....A broken toe, Oouch!!!

    Near Penzance at Tremenheere we have a sculpture garden with variety of different artists work on show.
    I was particularly interested in the installation work of James Turrell. I would best describe his work "SKYSPACE" as entering a giant inverted elliptical funnel with smooth light reflective walls and an elliptical hole in the roof to help you concentrate on the ever changing sky above you...The light in the chamber was constantly changing in brightness and contrast.

    I waited for full brightness to capture the shape of the strong light reflected on the walls together with a changing sky

    Les Jardins de Prélaz, Lausanne 2016
    This is a social housing complex which I photographed in January 2006 for the first time. I was curious to see how it would be ten years later.

    I ought to say that I prefer the one I took in 2006. The light propably plays a big role : I was a little too early (4 pm) and the summer sun of this beautiful day was extremely harsh.

    Les Jardins de Prélaz, Lausanne 2016 Note how the vivid red paint is now only very faint on some exterior walls.

    Nothing.
    In both instances the first pic is the oldest and the last pic is the newest.
    The trees didn't die, they grew.

    Thank you .. I put the first picture taken in 2006 in second, because they were shot with a Canon 5D, not an A7rm2. It was January then and the complex was just finished. The trees here loose their foliage in winter, with the exception of the Christmas trees :-)

    Foggintor Quarry Dartmoor...A7RII + 21mm Loxia
    The stone that was quarried from here went into the construction of the historic Princetown prison on Dartmoor (1806)
    History of Dartmoor Prison

    The First Prisoners
    First prisoners arrived on 22nd May 1809 and the prison was full by the end of the year. It soon became overcrowded and remained so. In April 1813 American prisoners began arriving and the overcrowding became worse. Outbreaks of diseases – pneumonia, typhoid, smallpox, etc. killed more than 11,000 Frenchmen and 271 Americans. Their graveyards and memorials are at the rear of the prison. The wars finally ended and the prisoners were repatriated, the last of them leaving in early 1816. The prison then closed until opening again as a penal establishment for criminals in 1850.

    Many thanks Barry. What a stunning image! WOW!
    I love the composition, light, colors, texture, mood, and the waves in the water that give it a rather graphical component as well.
    Perfect post-processing masterfully done!
    The image has your signature features, easily recognizable without reading the label. :-)
    With best regards, K-H.

    Many thanks Karl, most appreciated.
    Slight change of subject...Did you finally manage to get yourself a "E" mount CV15 in the end...I know that you have Guy's "Choppie" + acquired a very nice CV10 "E" mount?
    TIA, Cheers Barry
