The rools are the rools:

  1. Take a photo or seven
  2. Post same in this thread
  3. When you post your pix, do so by resoponding to THIS first post, and …
  4. … giving your post YOUR OWN SUBJECT LINE that befits (more or less*) the contents
  5. Sit back and enjoy praise and/or constructive criticism of your work
  6. Provide similarly friend and helpful C&C to other posters.

At about post 120, someone will start a part 2 of this thread. If so post new pix there from then on, but continue to post C&C on this thread until it maxes out.

* Puns, word play, and fun generally are highly acceptable too.

Cheers, geoff2

Look out, ladies with betel nut coming through!
In reply to Hen3ry, 5 months ago

On the beach at Kavieng, New Ireland, on Saturday morning -- market day -- a "banana boat", an outboard powered 26 foot fibreglass (or whatever) job, has just come in with a load of market goods including freshly harvested betel nut.

Buyers rushed the betel nut to stock their street stalls where they sell betel nut, cigarettes, village cured tobacco, and "flex" -- cheap mobile phone prepaid cards. There are lots of variations on what stalls stock, but these are the basics.

But whatever else, the stall must have betel nut to attract customers so for stall holders, getting their supply for the day is essential.

These two ladies didn't wait for the betel nut to come ashore, they waded thigh deep to buy it right off the boat.

The G6 with the 12-35 fitted.

Cheers, geoff

Ah, good morning H!

Great character in the LHS face.

I don't know much about Betel nuts (actually I know nothing*) but to me they don't look very ripe. Do they have to be cooked / processed in any way or are they already edible at that stage?

* I actually seem to recall something sinister about them.

Answered my own question...
In reply to Wormsmeat, 5 months ago

Hmm - from CNN:-

Yangon, Myanmar (CNN) -- Heavy users of betel quids reveal their addiction when they smile. Their teeth are stained a reddish-black, dyed from years of chewing potent parcels of areca nuts and tobacco, wrapped in a lime-coated betel leaf.

"Some people after they eat they're drinking coffee or tea; always after eating I'm chewing the betel nut. I like it," says Myo Min Than, a 28-year-old noodle seller at a market in Myanmar's largest city, Yangon.

Like tea or coffee, betel quids -- or "nuts" as they're often referred to -- give users a lift. But unlike tea or coffee, they also give them oral cancer.

"Having one is okay, but the danger increases when you start having the second one. When you reach a certain point, people will get cancer," said Professor Ying-chin Ko, vice president of China Medical University in Taiwan who conducted some of the first studies into the link between betel quids and oral cancer in the 1990s.

Some more shots with the GX7. It was sunny this afternoon, for a change, by the time I got into Troy, so there was some nice light on some of the buildings. Unfortunately, it was still variably cloudy when I took the nature shots before that...

I particularly like the sign on the door...it adds something. Not sure what, but something..

Lots of texture in this one...two different kinds of privacy glass in this window!

I wish I had a better 300mm lens...but a tripod would have helped too

Well, kind of a mundane subject, but he posed just over my head, so why not...

#2 is a fantastic shot - I particularly like the reflected sky / shape in the window emphasising the figure. Maybe try another shot emphasising the Push Hard sign from a different angle?

#3 is a good 'un too.

Autumn (fall) shots
In reply to Hen3ry, 5 months ago

Autumn in NZ now, so a few shots from Marlborough gardens. (Definitely not my gardens!)

All taken with the amazing little 9-18mm.  Never fails to amaze me how well it controls flare, sans lens hood.  So small and light and some fun compositions to be had.

Backlight no problem for the 9-18!

Some nice patterns in the chairs

Po
In reply to Hen3ry, 5 months ago

Some pictures from my visit to the Po last week.

They are of a navigation museum I visited at Boretto plus a couple of sunsets I posted last week but decided to revisit using the excellent Picture Window Pro retouching program.

The weathers been too rotten to get out and do some new stuff here in sunny Italy where it seems to rain all the time.

Quiet vulcano crater
In reply to Hen3ry, 5 months ago

This crater at Meerfeld, Germany is roughly 30000 years old. No wind and no bird for just a few minutes.

Takes you some time to get to this scenic view. Not perfect due to back light and my build in hand held panorama mode still isn't perfect

I hadn't tried Photomerge in CS6 yet, so took some sunset shots off the balcony to give it a whirl. This was four shots, I think, taken vertically with the 12/2.0 and then stitched. Sunsets are often like this in Ipoh - if I was even remotely religious I think I would feel blessed.

Is your 300mm a mirror lens? It looks like you've done a good job technically - nailed the focus and all that - but that bokeh smells of mirror.

No, oddly enough this is the 100-300mm.  For the past few weeks I have noticed it has had this really, really weird bokeh (which you are seeing here).  It's always tilted to the left and down, and looks like rain falling at an angle in the OOF areas.  It occurs on all my cameras, and does not seem to matter whether I have OIS on or off.  I was going to post a question to the forum about it, actually, to see if anyone else has seen this on this lens.  And, no, I have not dropped it or anything...and it does it whether the UV filter is on or off, so that's not it.  Weird, huh?
