Zindanfel's recent activity

  • This looks like a carnival ride similar to the Rock-O-Plane I recall from early '50s, but which didn't have the fancy colored lights -- only ground-based white floods.  Also, the two riders were ...
  • Replied in Iris..
    This is a floral portrait which requires a longer look than most, with its unusual combo of full bloom, buds, and complex shapes in a strong vertical alignment.  Green is subdued to the threshold ...
  • Replied in Cocoon
    Lincoln Park, Seattle.
  • This was shot from the right-of-way of a very secondary highway which is the main street through Ewan, a hamlet of maybe 200 people. My intent was to get a snap of the horse in the shade, but my ...
  • Replied in Which One?
    This has a wonderfully rich visual theme in form and color, with good cues to the theme provided by the principal subject's dominant bright garb and bangled forearm. I think Yaelle is on to ...
  • Am I wrong to think perhaps your success with low shooting angle for ducks last week has a bit of carryover this week?  If so, it's OK, and all good. :-)  After all, monuments uncontrollably loom, ...
  • There's a big mood contrast between the dramatic sky and pedestrian activities below. Strong light on the plaza rivals southern Spain, or maybe Arizona. It's interesting that all the buildings ...
  • Replied in Nino
    I'm envious -- though a generation older, he has twice as much hair as I, and half the wrinkles. Good portrait.
  • Replied in In the Palouse
    Ewan, Whitman County, SE Washington State. Usually best viewing in Original.
  • The title refers both to the photo taker's position apparently at the very edge of the dropoff, and to the absence of a restraining cable which in the past may have been threaded through the posts. ...
  • I think the Lumix 12-32 was kit lens for Pana GM5.  It's all-purpose for me, covering just about any situation I'd usually be interested in shooting.  For an even more compact carry, I also like ...
  • Replied in Mars
    Looks much like reddish lava rock in Oregon, relic of Mount Mazama, a cluster of volcanoes preceding Crater Lake.
  • Replied in Levels
    Sorry I wasn't quick enough to comment before the image became unavailable.
  • Replied in Old door
    The diagonal lines impart a feeling of spontaneity, an attractive element for the static sculpture. I had never before seen a unicorn represented more like a bovine than like a horse, so this is ...
  • From a Mechanical Age era when Man was (had to be) truly master of The Machine.  Gotta love that toolbox on the running board in #1.  In a malfunction situation, a driver would be expected to know ...
  • The article and video are interesting and certainly documentary. Their explanations demystify the photograph, which is slightly unfortunate -- who actually wants to know the magician's secrets? For ...
  • This is a sure-fire smile maker, perfectly in tune with the perennial optimism of Spring. It is beautifully shot low, down at duck-level, which gives the viewer a satisfying "I am there" experience. ...
  • If I take the image literally, I notice that the center photographer will have reduced perspective distortion in his photos because of the wall curvature favoring his lens. Double pairs -- ...
  • On Steptoe Butte, eastern Washington State. Elevation 3, 612 feet (1101m). Approx. Prominence 1000 feet (305m).
  • Thanks for all your interesting and illuminating comments -- you helped me see the image with new eyes. Comments about color boost in PP are correct, and I did grey-out a couple of taillights, but ...
