Re: A few Snappers

Greg, yes we did go right to the tip. Originally i had been planning a fishing trip to the gulf, but the people we were going with had to cancel, so we decided to do the cape instead. I didn't do much fishing, but i did pick up a nice barra in Lakefield NP. It was nervous stuff, fishing from the riv...

Re: A few Snappers

A few of the mighty Patrol that took us there and back, including one which was a bit of an oops moment. I got lazy and didn't check what was under the surface. Turned out to be deep wheel ruts, which stopped us in our tracks very quickly. Luckily there was a small tree, just strong enough to winch ...

Re: A few Snappers

These are some from when my wife and I travelled to Cape York in 2008. The Cape, as it's known, is one of the iconic 4WD destinations in Australia. The journey for us was about 6000km return.

Magnetic termite mounds. These can get really tall:

Re: A few Snappers

Congratulations on a great thread Greg, and a great fishing trip too by the looks. Looking through your photos brought back good memories of my own trip to the cape in 08. I feel inspired to post some of my own Cape York photos, and I will just as soon as i can find the files.

Re: Insects...

Here are a couple of green lacewings. The second lacewing is fairly old and looking a bit knocked around. The first photo was taken on my old nikon and is the reason i now have a sony alpha. please excuse the sensor dust.

Re: SONY ALPH A A750

Perhaps Sony has been able to develop a special coating on the pellicle mirror that changes reflectivity when a small electrical charge is applied to it, a bit like an auto darkening welding screen.

Re: Alpha 550 review is now on line

Thanks for the review David,

It's a real shame for me about the omission of MLU. With MLU included, and MF check LV, this camera could have been close to perfect for my work with microscopes where getting critically accurate focus is one of the hardest aspects.

Re: Microscope adapter

Does anybody know of a microscope adapter for A-mount? Which is something I'm interested also. I do remember a member of the forum doing microscopic photography who came and shared some info after acquiring a tool/accessory for that kind of work almost a year ago (when I first registered here )but ...

Re: Challenge 12: "Enjoy The Fresh Air!"

Ossie, I like your shot of Lake Wakitipu. It reminds me of my wife and my honeymoon back in 2007, when we spent a couple of weeks touring the south island in a hire car. During this time we did many things, including the dart river safari which finished at Glenorchy. It was awsome. This is a photo i...

Re: Tamron 17-50 - Comments sought after a comparative test

Hi Alan, I don't suppose your front element has come loose, as mine did a little while ago. Since i have tightened mine up the lens seems to be sharper than it was before, but this might just be a mental thing. I have no idea what effect a wrongly adjusted front element would have on focus or resolu...

Re: I shot the shooters

This is not hunting H, this is target shooting at circular plastic "clay pigeons or clays". I know, Brian. You had already mentioned in the first line. I'm just saying that those guns are associated with hunting. I would say only in a traditional sense. The under/over shotgun has long bee...

Re: Butterfly with 400mm lens

Nice work Hawk,

I like the first one. I'm not a real fan of isolating the main subject by totally desaturating the rest of the photo. I prefer a more subtle approach, by slightly lowering the saturation of the rest of the photo and perhaps a tiny bit of blur.
