Well, just maybe a more silhouette vibe might work? Allows for greater saturation of those flags too.

Re: Copy cat

Hmmm, interested to see the 'inspiration'. Bit noisy by your standards and having trouble ignoring the scaffolding.

That first one was to show the steep road going down and

in the back ground one can see...

The Oly 18-180 did all of the work.

Astor Place and Central Park

A couple from yesterday morning.

Astor Place before sunrise

Central Park Pond Reflection

I used the Olympus 9-18mm for both of these shots. I find this Olympus lens produces deeper blue skies than my Panasonic wide angle lenses, but it also handles bright lights more poorly than my Panasonic wide angle lenses. I find that the 9-18 tends to smear bright lights instead of producing clean starbursts (in night shots).

Re: Fall snaps

Lovely photos. Particularly like the flower shots with the blown out backgrounds. Nice to see that is possible with micro four thirds sensor.

Re: One week old

And the fact that they are dancing on the site of an old slave market adds to the absurdity .  It is now a Farmer's market featuring the best from our local farms.

Re: Oh no! Not that #$%^&*! volcano again! Sorry, folks …

Hey Geoff -  I think this is the nicest one you have posted so far. The colours are wonderful (so much for the rules) and I really like the boats lined up on the left.

Re: boats for you 2009 -- and now the hull shape, Frank

Thanks Geoff,

Your description and shots are fascinating, a photo essay all by itself that I appreciate. I learned a lot. An anthropologist would have a field day with this form of transportation, its organization, and the risks. And as a "participant observer" sitting in the bow on the last trip of the day for that particular trip across, it must have been exciting indeed- if that is the word.

These are just superficial reactions, but these boats seem a bit analogous to long distance taxis or lorries that used to ply the roads of West Africa - filled with people, chickens, cargo etc.

The hull design is part of it all for sure. As strictly an amateur boat nut, the hull seems more flat bottomed than I might have expected. There must be a reason for this, perhaps related to pulling the boats up on the beach although my guess is that this shape makes the boat pound a bit in "choppy" water. The beam seems a bit narrower than I might expect too, just off the top.

A very interesting story with interesting craft. Again, thanks a lot for sharing this.:-)

F.

You have a great eye - I'm always jealous! Your compositions are always spot on and these are right up there.

Re: Some birds

These are so much better when viewed full size. I love the sea eagle - he looks so fierce, and the owl is...full of character!

Thank you KG and John. For the first image I was behind the bush without a tripod, the IBIS on the EM5 almost makes the tripod obsolete!

So right Peter, i manage plenty of keepers shooting at 300mm without lumping a tripod around.

Badlands

These Calanchi or Badlands at San Valentino near Reggio Emilia in Italy are one of my favourite landscapes. They are formed by the erosion of the clay soil.  The landscape changes every time I go back there.

I like the muted colours on the last one. Bad weather often makes for interesting photo's

Re: Been chasing family all week, having fun but nothing art worthy...just a duck.

And after a second straight day of wild family time, a crafty IPA with a selfie embedded in the brew.

My bad, my son told me to call it a Mallard does that help?

Re: boats for you 2009 -- and now the hull shape, Frank

I have been wondering if the long, thin, flat banana shaped hulls reflect canoe experience in swells.

New camera experiments and conceptual experiments

Just acquired a G6 and GX7 as upgrades to my long time buddy GH2 and G3.  Learning how they work at the same time as I'm working on some photographic concepts.

Pretty straightforward macro stuff.

Been working with big blocks of ice, and with flowers frozen into the big blocks of ice.

Some local shots. Yes, heavily processed... I sell my images through interior designers, so I don't shoot very much without thinking about how I'm going to treat the image to turn it into a graphic.

Finally, some more abstract shots of blocks of ice with motorized LED light sources.

Micro 4/3 is one of my favorite systems.

WOW! WOW! WOW! Absolute knock-out stuff, Ed!

Flowers in ice! Oh boy, am I inspired. Right now I live in circumstances where I don’t have a freezer, but the moment I get one -- or get access to one -- the local orchids are going into it for some of that ice treatment.

Beautiful work and wonderful abstractions from ordinary beginnings.

many thanks for the look -- and the inspiration.

Cheers, geoff
