A few photos from France and Geneva
In reply to Wormsmeat, Mar 2, 2014

Dear all,

Last week I posted some pictures of CERN (Working late at CERN and art dress made of string).

Here are some contrasting pix from the same general neighborhood of the world. The first few are from the village of Peyrouges, near Lyon; the last photo is from Geneva.

Peyrouges is a tiny medieval town that is now a tourist attraction. It was thought to have been settled by people returning from Perugia in Italy. I was not able to do it justice at all...somehow Icould not find the right perspective. If I could have taken a picture from a helicopter hovering directly over the town, it would have shown the labyrinthine streets.

All comments and suggestions are welcome!

Best regards,

Jeff

Peyrouges, France

Peyrouges, France  - these galettes (sugar and lemon)  are the specialty of the town. The recipe is here . Knock on the window to get one!

Place du Molard, Geneva, with lighted cobblestones. There is a message on each one. There is a wine bar in the Tour du Molard.

There used to be a third face in that window.  He's probably on a sabbatical.  The first image is behind the epicenter of local hipsterism.  The last one is inside that epicenter.

That brain center is one wacky looking building. I wonder how much more it costs to build something that far off the beaten path.

Not sure, but the curvy part is just a facade. There's a very conventional building hiding behind it.

In reply to Bob Tullis, Mar 2, 2014

Bob, that was one of those photographic moments that just sprang out in front of me as I was walking down the alley.  It commanded me to shoot, and I obliged .  Something about the contrast of the clean blue sky and imposing brick buildings in the reflection and the grime of the alley.... For a moment I thought about moving the garbage can away, but decided it made the contrast more dramatic, so I left it there.  (As an experiment, I did clone it out in PP but the shot really lost something without it, so I was glad I had not moved it in person).

For me the last is easily the most successful as it adds a touch of the photographer's art to the subject.

I've shot that façade before, but this time with the shapes of the snow and the blackness of the wet pavement it really worked for me.  Thanks!

That's my fault.  After posting, I noticed that I had failed to crop a little white edge after a minor rotation of the image.  I cropped, reposted the image, but the full size now doesn't show up in the thread.  You can see the full size image by looking at my gallery first photo.

A higher perspective
In reply to Wormsmeat, Mar 2, 2014

Took some shots of the farm from above. Nexus7 wifiiing to a GoProHero2 with the GoPro suspended under a small kite...well, a small 2 metre one anyway. The GoPro has a usable range of about 200ft (the Hero does about double) and beyond that I switch over to Intervalometer mode and take pics every several seconds (the Nexus is good for framing before the signal is lost). The pond had been dug just before Christmas and the calculation was that it would take 3 years to fill with average rainfall. The south-west of England has had slightly higher than average rainfall since then. I could have flown my GF1 or GX7 with the Samyang 7.5mm for better resolution, but didn't and now I understand that the GX7 is even more limited in wifi range than the puny GoPro. Rats!

Yes...that is muggins with everything under apparent control. The rope and karibeener are used to hold down the kite while I am walking around since I can't hold down the kite and digitise the Nexus at the same time. At this point the kite was pegged to the ground and the GoPro was bobbing around at about 15ft.

Hi Eugene.  I don't have a Flickr account, but I do have a lot of shots in my DPR gallery, if you want to look there.

I looked at your Flickr gallery, and you seem to do very similar subjects to what I shoot.  You do live in a lot less gritty/grimy part of the country, though!  (Not sure whether that makes it easier or harder to find interesting architectural elements to capture )

Thanks,

-J

A good set, but I like the first one best because it is well shot and out of the ordinary for music photography.

This is a very haunting scene that just doesn't have the impact it should have on a small screen.  When the original is viewed on my 27 inch monitor, it has a lot more impact.  This would make an excellent very large print.

I do love a good bit of HDR. As long as you mix it up I don't see a problem with using all the tools at your disposal.
