NCV's recent activity

  • Replied in A hard slog
    This was shot on a hike where I misjudged the distance and time and which turned into a 12 hour odyssey along a particularly torturous stretch of the Tosco Emilian Apennines in Italy. I like the ...
  • Hamilton is dead so we must leave things to divine judgment. The fact that he shot dreamy soft focus pictures of young girls does not tell us anything. As a commercial photographer he saw a market ...
  • Replied in No Politics
    Another word to add to the list: 1) Equivalence 2) Brexit 3)...........
  • Some people can for some lenses. A "good" lens will add something intangible to a picture.
  • Replied in No Politics
    I did not intend to start a political thread. Just wanted to post a couple of pictures with a snappy title.
  • Some lenses have that unfathomable character that makes them stand apart. The 12-35 2.8 is one of them.
  • Created discussion thread Brexit
    On a recent trip to Bath in the UK I found somebody who is taking Brexit very seriously. Here In Italy on Sunday it is our moment for surprises too. By jingo keep them flags flying.
  • Replied in Evil America
    I think we are straying from the original theme which was far more interesting than the "evil America" meme.
  • I read an article in an Italian photo mag a few months ago where they tested "legacy" lenses on digital cameras. Wide open, even what were one considered top flight lenses had problems with ...
  • I think lots of us who are now in middle age, to avoid a lot of problems for what is an enjoyable hobby now self censor to avoid problems. Italy is not so bad yet. I could not resist these shots at ...
  • Replied in You are wrong.
    The Greeks and Romans had their own morality, very different to "our" morality. I think our modern day protectors of morality would have a heart attack if they were invited to a Roman party.
  • I would love to know the reason for this need to ask permission. What are people so afraid of? I cannot get my head around this idiocy and paranoia. A few months ago a woman wandered into the frame ...
  • It would be interesting to see out of camera JPEGs as Lightroom has intervened with its colour rendering. I like the Olympus shot more for the sky colour.
  • I did. She wrote as quoted: "where the general public do not go" . I presume if you want to see some extreme stuff you need to use certain keywords in ones search. I am blissfully ignorant of such ...
  • In places like the UK that are "ahead" in "social progress" I believe it has become quite problematical to photograph your kids in the end of year Christmas Play (Winterval play?) as you are bound ...
  • Replied in Aquae Sulis
    You were luck with the light. The sun after the rain shots bring the Circus and Cresent  to life.
  • They only apologised after the guy had been found not guilty in a second trail after he appealed after being found guilty in the first. I presume the social stigma has devastated his life. Hope he ...
  • Replied in You are wrong.
    The subject of my post was never tried in a court of law so he is innocent in the eyes of the law. The rule of law is the mark of living in a civilised country. Or do you prefer the lynch mob to ...
  • I try to get rid of things I do not use anymore as it just loses any residual value sitting on the shelf. I tend to trade in stuff. When I see my dealer has something I am interested in I try to ...
  • Quite. Must our museums destroy the negatives and prints made by Victorian photographers like Lewis Carroll for example?
