Mike Fewster's recent activity

  • Mountains of grain kept under plastic. It doesn't have the same romance. Not much chance of one of these becoming a museum.
  • When going to the pictures was an "event" and the picture palaces themselves were part of the wonder.... I adored such places and I'm most happy to see them repurposed and preserved. In one, I'm ...
  • Yes, it is open to the public. It's in an off the beaten track spot and still not well known. I'm not sure why some of the poles have the concrete surrounds at the base. Probably a more recent ...
  • Replied in Wollop
    I agree with K's suggestion of a small tilt to the right. You have avoided burning out the details in the snow or getting too much blue into the snow. It feels cold. Great. Even so, If possible, ...
  • Flamingos are preposterous birds. The colour is an outrage; the legs and walking motion hilarious and the beak bizarre. They make as much sense at Christmas as roast dinners and Christmas puddings ...
  • It would have been tempting and oh so easy to crop this on the right and across the bottom so that the diagonal of the wings went corner to corner. What you have done is much better. The extra ...
  • The tree and the structure have a similar simplicity of line and lightness. The curve of the trunk and the overhanging branch feel protective as though around an offspring. Stark and effective. ...
  • Replied in Small people
    We surely can. Your angles and composition bring out the us and them scale and  grandeur of these trees. Carefully controlled lighting so we see the details of the trees but don't lose too much of ...
  • First, a big thank you for the post. It's a topic that needs to be fully understood. Question 1. The histogram. Having this available before the shot is taken seems to me to be one of the very best ...
  • Replied in The Stick Shed.
    Another grain silo from the Wimmera area of Victoria, Australia. Very different to the concrete silo of last week. This was built during WW2 when labor and building materials were scarce but grain ...
  • Replied in As suggested.
    Here is another shot I had that shows our passer by showing where he used to work, as suggested. While I can see how this fits into the narrative, I prefer the shot I posted previously as a ...
  • Replied in Rowing
    Rowing shells are truly beautiful objects. Perfect examples of function resulting in elegance of design. Engineering abstractions where the product is pared back to pure  essentials. A wonderful ...
  • Beautiful colours. Just the right clear pale blues and oranges to give the feeling of a cold but sunny morning. Being frosty, the air is totally still and we see this in the reflections.  I relish ...
  • Replied in Horse country
    When I think "horse country" I anticipate rolling green grass. This collection therefore surprises and that creates interest. Number 4 is especially appealing. Line after line converges on the same ...
  • A clever title. The two groups of figures don't interact at all. Your title gives a link and the image is better as a result. The two shop entrances at the rear provide frames for each of the ...
  • Ditto regarding the lure of drones. I hate the buzz of them when others are using them but love the fresh perspectives they bring. My tendency is to see images in abstracted flat blocks of shapes ...

  • Replied in Mar de Nubes
    Hmm. Perhaps my response says too much about a misspent youth? I immediately saw this in human form terms and the clouds as sheets. Re cropping. I like Kumsal's crop but also agree with PT's ...
  • When you are asked." What was the largest concrete structure in the southern hemisphere in 1920?" you will be able to dazzle them. Here it is. The Noske grain silo. Victoria. The last shot includes ...
  • Replied in Maybe?
    The A7iv is quite a bit more expensive. And you need to be able to find one. The adapter works OK but is also bulky. Given that the price of an A6600 is about the same as an A73, I'd have thought ...
