Mike Fewster's recent activity

  • Replied in Wind
    Have to come back to this one. It's full of things to discuss and I can't do it justice at the moment.
  • Coincidentally, this morning I had been admiring another photo, Dorothy Lange's White Angel Breadline. With very different subject matter, it uses the same technique where one face in a group ...
  • Replied in The lights
    As everyone has said. Your capture of the lighting effects and the framing of the performers by the lighting is dramatic. The series is full of energy and it is your compositions that are ...
  • Over many tears of travel in Asia I have marveled at the construction workers and bamboo scaffolding of the region. That scaffolding could be the subject for a major photographic study, even ...
  • Replied in Caulking
    I've been remiss. Traveling and up late and early and not spending much time on the net. Will try to do better. Riverside. Boat building. Porto.
  • Thanks Pete. Medieval Roadies. Perfect.
  • It is impossible to look at this without a smile, at the least. The open beak dominates the shot. It is perfectly placed for the rule of thirds and becomes the centre of the story. The stance of ...
  • There is a small feature of medieval buildings that  I adore and have killed many a pixel in collecting. Here we have two of them. The little figures taking the weight of the construction above. ...
  • You should have a good look at a Sony RX1. While you are at it, have a look at the build quality as well. Start with the lens cap(I am serious about that.)These things have one of the very best...

  • As I've said before, we have become at home with this site and its fabulous structures, light and inhabitants. I can't therefore look at this shot without pre-knowledge of the series. This time we ...
  • Replied in Ironclad 'case
    It's a clever title that adds layers of meaning to  a pattern observed by the photographer. In this case, I don't think the Photographic God's of Chance have quite given the photographer the ...
  • I agree with you Lou. Your crop takes out  one of the most jarring areas of sweep panorama error in the background. The thin slice off the bottom stops the bunches sort of dwindling out and the ...
  • I know nothing about grizzlies so this was all new to me and I needed your text to put it together. If that's their upbringing, it's no wonder they are . The first two shots create the tension and ...
  • There are seven main metal structures here and remarkably each incorporates  some of the same red shade. There are also quite a few vertical lines of about the same length. Consequently the main ...
  • https://luminous-landscape.com/
  • That's wonderful news Minniev. And I have included a plug for the weekly Wednesday C&C No theme Thread for those who wish to see more of your work. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61570521
  • Apart from the artistry itself, how do they do that? Lou's use of  side lighting brings out the fine textures and makes clear just how much some of those surfaces are raised and undercut. Either ...
  • This area might be suffering in the recent floods? Triangles everywhere here creating patterns with the back wall. The blue and pattern of the sarong does the same. It is a strong pose but ...
  • I am in a real hurry at the moment and, thinking Europe, just grabbed this shot from the past. Actually, it is a much wider panorama shot taken in sweep panorama mode. The light was lowish and ...
