Thanks heaps Arjun, yours is a wonderful spin on the first frame, a book cover or a film poster is exactly what I had in mind when producing the frame. An older very experienced assassin in full flight might be considered fully wound. Best to you mate.

Such a delightful subject in Bear Bridge set within an equally charming place, you capture the essence beautifully Bruno, one can hear the water and wallow in the personal space. Wonderful stuff mate.

Delightful compositions and processing David, I am particularly taken with the texture of the leaves in the foreground of the second frame.

Tremendous feeling of personal space in this frame Arjun, the sky is closing in on the viewer with only one escape through the clouds in the distance - I am trapped in the event horizon of something but I know not what, a storm of some kind perhaps. Love the inevitable tension of the frame and your photographic skill is clearly beyond question. Wonderful stuff.

Excellent post processing, masterful composition and very adept camera control - what more can I say Rick except you are a master of the lx7. You present the the character in the first frame as a sculpture with extraordinary detail and life, convincingly riding the cusp between sculpture and life - something I haven't seen in b&w before and it's a visual blast. The second takes the chaos of a window display and hurls it into a different realm, accentuating whats there to give it more meaning. The last frame sees someone looking intensely at me, no matter how eccentric the mans appearance, he just looks right into my soul - just a wonderful frame mate. My very best to you and enjoy your week.

Fantastic. Is IR mixed up in these shots in any way?

Yes, totally. I had the camera converted for infrared capture.

Thanks heaps Rick, I just finished thoroughly enjoying your frames mate, I think the old Indian gentleman is still looking into my soul and I probably won't look at pseudo punk window display the same again. Have a totally top week mate!

Just epic mate! Well done Michel, this frame is as much a brand as a photograph, rich, unambiguous and very powerful - brilliant!

This one is simply a stunner! Vertical trees framed in Wide Horizontal format - such an Artistic View Point! Dramatic back lighting with long shadows - like Alice's view of the Wonderland. Beautiful B&W!

In reply to sightandsounds, Apr 16, 2013

Love them both Trent, its a deep insight into someone else's world, very powerful and honest art at its very best. Your photographic skill is exemplary, your aesthetic sense well honed - I come away from this set with deep artistic respect for you and your work. Look after yourself mate.

In reply to yellodog, Apr 16, 2013

Absolutely excellent mate, I leave after enjoying the very essence of your subject, beautifully done and presented. Heaps of thought and soul radiating out of this, this would find a place in the gallery or on the cover of Rolling Stone. Best to U.

OMG! What a breathtaking scene! And what is the odds of getting that dramatic sky on top of that Majestic summit! Michel - stop it! You knocked me off my chair again!

Magic Frame...
In reply to Adsum, Apr 16, 2013

You have that fz150 working overtime adsum, there is just so much depth in this frame, I am seeing colour tone that isn't there while my eyes roll along the grass then rest on the Church nestled in the softest of sky's - most importantly my eyes want to do it again, an again... Beautifully done.

In reply to DezM, Apr 16, 2013

Nicely done Dez. The very first ride in an aircraft was in an old dc3 like this one, an RAAF military Dakota with canvas bench seats running along the each side - I was 13, it rattled and bumped its way through the air. Very exciting.

'Twas a cold and dreary day, and I needed something to do. I shot these with an infrared converted LX5, then processed in Nik Silver Efex Pro and other apps.

David - This one is literally a Dreamscape! Gorgeous Black & Silver - composition, tonal range and such rich textures. You've really nailed your IR processing - Beautiful! Thanks for sharing these.
