    You hid pretty well there. Lol

    Of course you only had one direction to go unless you had a parachute
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Hi Matt, apologies for not getting back sooner (I have been out most of the day).
    I see that you have figured uploading from Flickr for yourself, excellent!
    Everybody does it slightly different from one another. I now personally make my Flickr images to 2400px maximum wide/high and then make a link to that called “LARGER” for members who wish to see how my image was originally intended to be finally seen, like the one below.
    I then send the smaller 1600px image which is automatically generated by Flickr to GetDPI, this in turn is automatically downsized yet again to 1200px maximum wide/high with the GetDPI downsizing algorithm.
    This way only a tiny amount of IQ is lost in translation when the image displays here on GetDPI but in order to see it at it’s best you really need to click on the “LARGER” link.
    To get a clean image I find that the Andreas Resch Web Sharpener script works the best that I have seen to date...But it only works with CS4 and above because it works in Labcolor mode and not RGB.
    Here is the link if you are interested.... http://andreasresch.at/2013/04/07/web-sharpener-better-sharpening-for-the-web/
    I hope this helps....Cheers Barry

    Taken this afternoon over in Dartmoor.

    Thanks, Barry! I'll take a look at the resizing. I use a resizing action from Jack Flesher - they may be similar.

    You are most welcome Matt...The important thing to bear in mind is that it uses Lab color mode...that's only if you are wishing to get a crisp clean look like Michiel and myself.

    Smaller images can sometimes be crisp looking...but you sometimes need to re-alter the size of the image on the screen with control+mouse wheel until the image bites in sharp...They are not always the same as one another surprisingly...Cheers Barry

    Barry,

    Very interesting script! I use Lab Color frequently in landscape processing. It seems quite effective in this script as well.

    Just type center............link............./center but then with the straight accolades around it. Can't do that here because then you will not see it.

    "Nice shot. What was your lighting setup?"

    Thanks,

    Lighting was a Godox 180 with a grided reflector and red gel for the red light between the trees and a Godox 360 with a 48 octabox camera left about 8 feet from the model. The Godox units work well because they are very portable and use a small battery pack.

    Walking on the rice terrace. Our local guide who is also a photographer arranged a few children and women in traditional costumes to walk along the rice terrace for a photo session. A7R w/70-400G.

    Climbing the levee is not so easy. These women made it look easy.

    This place is Yuanyang, located in Yunnan Province, Southern China. It is famous for its rice terraces which have been in cultivation for over a thousand years. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Yuanyang is about 350km from Kunming, the provincial capital.

    I have posted several images of the rice terrace here as well.

    Thank you. What's the easiest way to get there, via Kunming or via Lao Cai on the Vietnamese side?

    We flew into Kunming first since it is under 4 hours flying time from Singapore. There are flights from Bangkok, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur to Kunming. Our first stop was the Dongchuan Redland which is in the opposite direction from Yuanyang. I will post a few images from this area. The highway from Kunming to Yuanyang is pretty good. If you were to go Lao Cai, you have to fly into Hanoi first. From Hanoi you need to take a train or bus to Lao Cai. Sapa which is near Lao Cai has rice terraces as well, but on a smaller scale than Yuanyang.

    The terraces are filled with water from November to March. April is the planting season.

    Thank you again. I've been to Sapa before, so I know that route. It would be interesting to do it as a round trip, one way in and another out. April would be perfect with the planting and all, but my travel plans seem to be rather extensive that month. We'll see

    Been getting used to the Sigma 150-500 on Sandy's A7r. These were all captured handheld and cropped at 100%. Does this qualify as "wildlife".

    Don, is that lens is in the a-mount? Using it with the LAEA4 adapter? How is the autofocus performance?

    Mike, it is the Sony A mount with the LA EA4 adaptor. Overall gets heavy when stalking like critters but manageable nevertheless. We were prepared for slightly worse autofocus however not the case. We've found the AF to be just as fast and just as accurate as without it. The huge benefit is the additional focus points, especially when trying to capture something as small as these little guys.

    Great package. We'll be using this setup later this year when we return to Jackson Hole.

    Thanks Jono, It was also my summer home back in 1967...Unfortunately only for just a fortnight each August each year...I'm sure our paths must have crossed sometime in the past...It was so different back then, with artists painting in the shops in Fore Street...Oh happy days

    HI Barry
    I don't remember the artists painting in the shops in Fore Street - but I remember the Seaman's mission (pretty much where you took your photo from) where I misspent my youth playing Billiards and Snooker.

    My father was a doctor in StIves (and a fine photographer - there are some of his pictures in the Tate StIves) - he was friends with lots of the artists - many of whom came to our house for dinner when I was a boy (Hepworth, Heron, O'Malley, Wynter and more). My mother was a jeweller, taught by Breon O'Casey.

    I also remember the deck chair building on the beach on the extreme left of your photos . . . which is now our very favourite restaurant (the Porthminster Beach Cafe) - if you haven't been, then you must! Booking required, great for lunch as well.

    One of our favorite days out is to drive to StErth station - catch the train to StIves (along the coast - lovely) have lunch at the Porthminster and then wander through the town for the afternoon (a visit to the New Craftsmen for one of Cornelius Van Dop's lovely badges is vital ). Tea at the Tate and then back to StErth on the train.

    What could be nicer (we'll be there again towards the end of March).

    Just this guy you know

    Hi Jono, apologies for the late response, I have been in Truro all day.
    It sounds like you have spent a most wonderful childhood living in St. Ives at a golden time in its history, you were very fortunate.
    It must have been wonderful living there all the year round with those artists about. I only saw a brief glimpse of it back in the 60’s during my summer holidays.
    I can’t say that I remember the Seaman’s mission back then ...I suspect the Seaman’s mission was just by the old jetty on the other side of Smeatons Pier, which is where those images were taken.
    What I do remember thought were some artists painting/performing for the public in a few shops along Fore Street (Painting stormy seascapes was my faint recollection).
    BTW, thanks for the thumbs up Re: Porthminster Beach Café, I will have to give it a try next time I’m passing that way.
    I hope to be meeting up with Ron Pfister in Penryn mid to end of March, perhaps we will try and come over in your direction to take some snaps...who knows we might run into you in St. Ives.
    Cheers Barry
    Edit: OMG Jono, I just looked up that New craftsmen gallery...That WAS definitely one of the gallery's with the artists in the window...I actually chatted to the owner (Ylenia Haase) on the 50th Anniversary of the shop...small world!

    Taken a few days ago - Mount Zion Coffee shop, St Ives. (Fantastic coffee, nice guy...No food though)....Coffee toning seemed appropriate

    This is a colour shot, not translated to B&W - just as it came out of the a7II.
