Re: Worker Ants.

I like the sepia toned image the best as it is strongest in composition. Some of the shots seem abruptly truncated at the bottom.

Re: half way spring

Nice tones although the highlights look a bit clipped. I assume these were infrared.

Note to self

Stop complaining about MY job.

Is this your job, or did you manage to get access?    Very impressive, either way.

Thanks for looking, enjoy the Easter holiday, John.

Terrific and sharp! I especially like the butterfly with transparent wings. I've never seen such species in my neck of the woods or limited travels.

Re: Some photos from Florida's Wilderness...

Really like the lush tones of #1. I'd like to be there now instead of decorating my house. Not sure it's level though (?).

Re: Note to self

My job, 3 days of mine site work. First time using the Pannys underground, GX7 & G3. Also use Pentax kit but these little guys were all over them for versatility.

Edit: Not my full time job working underground - had 30 years of that as a diesel mechanic, this was a paid assignment for my new career of the last 10 years.

I was strolling down to the local store on Good Friday morning to get some emergency mobile phone credit, when I saw the fungi pictured. Naturally, I had broken my golden rule of never leaving my camera behind (what if Tavurvur erupted and I didn't have a camera in my hand?), but fortunately I w only 100 meters from home, so I turned around and hoisted the GM1 with 12-32 lens out of the anti-humidity box.

And this is what I got:

An abject failure to adjust exposure! I took 3 shots, slightly reframing, all at he same exposure, knowing very well I was blowing he white fungus. Sigh!

That's more like it! This is slightly dark to get detail in the white fungus.

If anything every looked poisonous looking, it has to be this green fungus. (The red in the previous pic looks pretty nasty too!)

Looking at this collection, I see I missed a market here. I should have taken some close-ups of each of the kinds of fungus I was seeing for stock pix.

Cheers, geoff

Very nice colors and well exposed. I especially like the final image. They look a bit like striated rocks.

I like these documentary style photos. The black and white portrait is my favorite of the set. I wonder if the third photo would work better if the background was in focus instead of the person.

As the client brief was personal based - people in focus. But I do appreciate the observation.

My favourite this week...

I did all the shots in this post at the Tate last Sunday, inside and outside. I only took abou 8/10 photos of people but when I put them up on the computer I was struck by the degree to which the images were composed around strong geometrical elements. It was unconscious and interesting to realise.

I like the first two the most, although I think both have distractions on the edges. The first has people truncated on the left and right sides, although there really isn't anything to be done about this as it's real life and not a staged photo. The thin oof right edge of the second photo is a bit jarring. I think it would be preferable to have more of the frame in the shot or out completely.

Town & Country

Or, country and town.

This past weekend I looked for some broad scenics in Bovina (foothills west of the Catskills) that were accessible via ATV. Come take a short ride. . .

I have permission to ride on 800 acres of private property, much of it hay fields. I liked the view, though couldn't quite manage to find much in the way of f/g interest to feature.

Panoramic

The next day I was going to move to a reservoir, but with the wind of the weekend (gusty ,but thankfully warm) I figured if the sky wasn't a good showing it wasn't worth the trip with the water not being very reflective, so I stayed local again. On the way back to this location I found this scene. . .

This area falls into shadow earlier than in the higher fields, but it has some f/g elements and a nice view into the center interest. In retrospect I should have been here near sunset. But I went back to that field from the prior day (rather, another field near the prior evening's elevation and location).

Better light than the evening before. Waited around further, just because it was so pleasant. Started the ride back as it got dark. Stopped again on the way, at a dirt road that the beavers are flooding out. The peepers and frog chorus was as enchanting as it was loud. The harmonics they produced reverberated in my head - at times I thought I heard dogs barking and mumbled voices within the chorus. Love that experience. The moon was out, so I lingered and took out the tripod.

The conflict was to keep the shutter short enough to avoid excessively distracting streaks of stars, but in doing that I found I had to raise the exposure in post. In the field on the LCD the exposures looked brighter, but that's what happens at night (deceiving). And there was much noise for that (he frowned). I should have upped the ISO somewhat, in retrospect.

Stars cloned out.

Oh, yea. . . I was to give you a ride. . .

Back in town this week, for the scheduled meet up I decided to work w/o tripod, as since the meet-ups started I haven't worked w/o the tripod. Being able to mix it up like this, with the array of glass this format takes, is one of the joys of this format afaic.

This would be better, I think, if the top were cropped a bit. That center tower draws my eye to the top of the frame looking for the peak of the building as it is here.

I'm fortunate to have both NYC and a refuge in the country to try to exploit. To exploit them better. . . is the work in progress.

Spring is in the air

Hi

As I can no longer access my old account, I had to create a new one adding "1" to the old name.

Some pictures from our annual Easter outing to Stuttgart. The "scaffolded statue"-ones (no Exif provided due to frames) are taken with my G2 (heavily cropped; with Panasonic 45-200 mm at 166 and 200 mm). I could not make up my mind which of the 2 to upload. The "art"-picture was taken with my LX 7 - did not have my G2 with me. C+C welcome.

Insect Macro
2

Some insect macro shots from yesterday morning.

I drove to KL to meet up with Robin Wong for some street shooting. However, I had an hour to kill so headed out to a butterfly park to get some insect shots.

All photos taken with the E-P3, M. Zuiko 60/2.8 Macro and FL-600R flash.

Sorry for posting so many - a few of them are quite similar to each other, but I can't decide which ones I prefer.

A butterfly being eaten by ants - don't see this too often.
