Well, well ,well Mr Wong... I recal someone talking about a photo project on molten lava in Hawaii. I don't seem to recal the members name... Oh yes, I remember now; It was myself in this thread jan 19, 2016. https://www.dpreview.com/photography/6410408763/benjamin-von-wong-shark-shepherd-photoshoot-captures-an-underwater-fantasy

Here is the post : "My next project will be a Transvestite having a transhuman/animal hybride baby in a sea of molten lava during a monsoon in Hawaii as the sun is rising creating a rainbow of color not seen by the human eye... Try and beat that, Benjamin."

Of course my post was in gest, but you sure did try to "beat that"... Ironically, in the exact same place. Do you need another photo project? Hahahaha to funny.

On a serious note, if my post was the feotus for this project Mr Wong, credit is due.

You are pushing this climat change sob story now? Blaming climate change for Hurricane Matthew!? Jeez https://lavaforchange.smugmug.com/

Thank you for your support but I will need more than luck to pull that one off... I may have to travel to the 4th dimension to make it happen. But seriously, what would be realy spectacular? Seeing a combination of fire & water, like a flametrower underwater (if at all possible) in wathever scene that would be appropriate... Brain fart? May be. Good luck on your next venture. :^)

How can one copy another one's work and still have respect for oneself...

If only it would have been shot with an 11x14 glass plate with a USW pano lens; We could then say without a doubt : "That is a real photograph"

But seriously, Tony you did good.

keepreal: This is yet another example of capitalism gone mad and some people having money way beyond their actual needs to spend frivolously. I had this lens in the early 1970s in a mount for Exakta Varex and, for a triplet design, it was surprisingly good. However, $1,699 is a ridiculous price. About a tenth of that would make sense, little more.

I, for example, make prints of my best photos in A2 size (16.53 x 23.39 inches) and my Nikon D300 bought in 2009 with the Sigma 12-24mm f4.5-5.6 EX DG bought in 2006 are fine for landscapes in good light, even if there is better available today.

I would have been interested in the new m.Zuiko Pro 7-14mm F2.8 on Micro Four Thirds because that too would have been good enough. However I would not pay over $1000 for a hefty bit of glass, however good, when the saving in bulk and weight compared to APSC is so small.

Very few people need a Nikon D610 or better but the fact that so many people buy them usually attests to their greed or stupidity.

You know crap about what people need...
Stop making a fool of yourself by talking out of your a$$.

I was going to say things but I don't like writing.
I feel like 'Untitled #96' by Cindy Sherman regarding this news.

Take a look at what "one of the most bankable 'art' photographers in the world" does. http://www.cindysherman.com/art.shtml

In conclusion: It could be you!
