Re: Photos from Brazil Trip

Interesting shots Sury. My immediate reaction was that the actual sunset surely must have been over your right shoulder somewhere? I must admit I didn't spot the "Kazakhstan" until it was pointed out. In fact I didn't notice the tiles too much - the centre of attraction certainly does work...

Re: A Couple of Namibian Landscapes

Thanks for the comment Hefay. (Since my last comment I decided that my old Epson 3880 was terminally ill. So I've bitten the bullet and bought a new Canon Pro-1000 printer. I decided to use the coloured version for the club. If only I had known. The visiting judge was a B&W nut, so I would have ...

Re: Motalcino Revisited

Wow Ossie, I think that those are six fantastic images. Well done! Cannot imagine why you were not originally happy with them.

Derelict Dwelling

One of our camera club members lives in a farm-like area with a horse stable. Yesterday some of us visited her place in the early morning. I didn't get much in the way of horse-pictures, but I did get a few images of a nearby derelict house. Here is the first one post-processed (just in time for our...

Re: A Couple of Namibian Landscapes

Thanks for the positive comments Yildiz.

Yesterday was a printing disaster. Lots of black head-strikes. Black ink all over the place. Wasted much paper and ink. The only good outcome was I've now got an A2 print of the coloured version.

Re: A Couple of Namibian Landscapes

Oh Dear! :? Your comment got me rethinking that colour image Sury. So I've just applied a mid-tone adjustment layer; and then masked out the effect on the sky and immediate foreground. Very subtle, but I now prefer this version. The only question now is "do I consider the improvement worth the ...

Re: A Couple of Namibian Landscapes

Thanks for that comment Sury. I got around to printing them yesterday. However, I first applied another curve adjustment to the monochrome version to pull the tones up a bit - in the version above the whites were in the 80% range and I pulled them up by about 10%. That tends to improve the "3D&...

Re: A Couple of Namibian Landscapes

Thanks for the positive comments Valery and Sury. I have not yet printed the two Sperrgebiet images, so I will reserve judgement on which I will use. I'm also leaning towards the monochrome version; but the colour print will probably display some very subtle colour tones (that cannot be seen on a co...

A Couple of Namibian Landscapes

Although I visit the Photoclubalpha forum daily I rarely comment. So, since I had prepared the write-up below anyway, I decided to drop a copy here too. For the month of May our local camera club has the set subject "Solitude". I looked up the word and noted that "solitude" is ge...
