Well Pamela, you asked for it.
It's been reasonably dry here today, and an hour ago the sun returned with intent
So, it was back to the field, to find that the central area of the base of the pylon to be a mass of nettles and thistles.
And my good intentions to plot exactly the intersection point are blown into the weeds, so to speak.
This is a free standing job, on uneven ground.
I don't stand very steadily even on good solid and level ground and looking vertically upwards was a trifle disorientating.
But as Paul says the difficulty of the shot should never prejudice the outcome of the critique.
The second shot, V2 is merely similar, but taken from one side to try to interpose the jib through a gap in the strut.
Posted By strokebloke : OK, Catherine. I'm not sure that I've got this right.
I took a copy of your V2, [and a copy of what you said you'd done (because you know about my short-term memory) ] and loaded it into CS4 with Paul's 1 stop less V1.
Only because I don't have a clue what I'm doing with the channel mixer.
On the one other occasion that I put a mono up, I'd just ticked the Mono Box. Everyone, without exception, said that I should have used the channel mixer. I must confess to not having pursued that one at the time, so your suggestion to try it in mono put me right on the spot. Deep water & rapidly drowning !!!
Anyway, here goes. I've done my best.
You are allowed to snigger. I'm thick skinned. [I've been married for 40 years, it seems longer, but 40 it is]
