Mike Fewster's recent activity

  • That's not a river in the background, that's a salt pan. This is raw desert country (you can see some red sand peeking through here and there). Last year there was lots of unseasonal rain and ...
  • This is sooo good. The V on it's side composition  with lines that converge on the knife. The framing balancing sleeve and glove. The tatts and handle pattern.  The questions raised by the ...
  • In itself, the shot is straightforward with some standard framing. As a symbol or commentary, it is ultra potent and all the more so for its time and date. Immediately I want to talk about ...
  • When the subject just oozes atmosphere like these two, they are irresistible.   Maybe do an Andrew and process the shots for the drama? Maybe emphasize the incongruity of these legends in their ...
  • That's a lens I'd be keeping. It's a wonderfully brave and unorthodox composition, but it works. The fragile, just broken line of the leg down through the upwards searching beak speaks volumes ...
  • Suitably sombre. There is irony in the date this was erected. Just around the corner...Perhaps that is crossing the mind of the seated figure? Maybe those who put this up were doing so as a ...
  • I like the treatment you have given the shot, to my eye, it builds the mood I described above. Of course, that might not be the mood you were trying to convey but it seems completely ...
  • Number one adds a lot more "story"  than two. The inviting gates, just open to that tempting but question raising building behind. The zig zag line of the fence that finally opens is also ...
  • I just relooked at image 2 at full size. The tone range is fine, it just looked a bit restricted in the small version.
  • Number 2 lets us read the date and I think that is important in a memorial. I am assuming this was taken through a windscreen and the reflection across the bottom is a bit distracting. The very ...
  • I have some weeks and a forum question here on much the same quest. I ordered this, Altura Sling It arrives later today so I haven't actually seen or used it yet but there are about 1000 very ...
  • Replied in Desert Garden 2

  • If price is an issue, I wouldn't overlook the kit 28-70. You can get them quite cheaply. Light/versatile. Focusing iis fast enough for street work and on the A7Rii you have plenty of iso latitude ...
  • In many ways, I like the original even more. All the reflections and light patterns on the tiles plus the pattern of oval shapes.....The original reminds us that this is a photographer at work ...
  • Hi Don.  It's a bad week for me and "Whoops!" Monty's response sent me back to look at your shot again. I am viewing these on my small travelling computer and I looked at the image without having ...
  • Replied in A Riddle..
    I have looked at this big and small. Diffraction through oil? through a microscope? The markings around bottom right have me mystified. It's striking but I have no idea what it is.
  • Replied in Finger bowl
    Don, a 10/10 for the title before we discuss the shot. Incidentally, I wanted to see the exif on this and while doing so I noted the date. It is amazing what cameras can do today. Rich, warm tones ...
  • Loved the title. The wings are about ready to be awarded. For the top group, the machinery itself is the thing. Your camera and technique are capturing those planes with plenty of detail. Consider ...
  • You are right Pete, this is indeed a place In a heavy storm, that Gorge is awe inspiring. It's called Loch Ard after a sailing ship that smashed itself to pieces outside on the cliffs in such a ...
  • They get more and more interesting Monty. Just as you say re the lines and I'd add one more. The orange and black cones are linking up with the orange and black machinery as well.
