Nice use of the ND Sury. What # is the filter?

It was a variable filter and I don't remember the setting. It was the first time ever, in that jungle, I was tired and sweaty.
I remembered to use it is itself a miracle. :D

I agree Andy. The blurred version was really moving.

Thank you Jeff. I need to practice more with the ND filters. I did not have a tripod at that time to so I rested
the camera on the bridge rail, looped the strap around and pulled it tight but could not avoid some movement,
for one, I was tired, and two it was muggy and sweaty.

I completely understand. I've been there several times myself.

Calling Peter Ottoway

Some time ago I posted images of the same scene photographed in two different seasons (winter and spring).

(viewtopic.php?f=17&t=7411&p=80481&hilit=buckland#p80481)

When I took the original images we were living in Perth. The images were captured near Irishtown not far from Northam, which is Peter Ottaway's home base. In fact we spent many a happy hour in the York/Northam/Toodyay area taking photos.

We now live in South Africa, but are currently on holiday in Oz. I thought it might be a fun idea to get a summer version of the same scene, so we drove up on Monday to have a go. Originally there were heavy bushes on the roadside with only a couple of gaps where one could easily take shots. Now the bushes are gone and I could not identify the original vantage point, and so chose the wrong position. I will have to return again when the clouds are right and have another go from the correct position.

Other than the bushes alongside the road, the scene has also altered in that there is now much more bush hiding the ruin. Also a roof of a new dwelling is now peeping over the horizon (cloned out in Photoshop).

Anyway, I attach a copy of the file for interest.

However, I was thinking that while I am in the vicinity perhaps Peter Ottaway could provide some suggestions on other possible landscape opportunities in his area? What do say Peter?

regards - Peter Dewar

Lovely capture Peter. I feel sense of equanimity in that image. Nicely balanced elements, aesthetically pleasing.

I can almost feel the heat and the dry air through my screen, Peter :)

I really like this shot. It's a great composition and I feel like I need to go see it in person.

Very nice, Jeff. The HDR works well in this one. I like the road leading you down the valley and to the brightness in the sky top left.

Thanks Andy and Sury. I was having a hard time processing the photo and so that's why I went with HDR.
