actually used a Mamiya/Velvia M/F combination, but don't have a scanner, so photographed the tranny on a lightbox, using my LX5. Came out OK. It was taken before I "went digital."

This is a cracker of a shot, Alan, I trust the Mamiya emerged from the torrent unscathed.
An epz member who no longer contributes used to proclaim his utter rejection of the modern technological era. He would only post black & white photos that he had taken with his professional Nikon D2 and made frequent use of the clone stamp in CS3 to remove all traces of motor cars . . . . Wink

I like the story, Bill. I've known 1 or 2 like that myself, in areas other than photography though.

As it happens, I went down rather painfully on my arse on the slippery wet rock. The Mamiya, solidly atop the steadfastness of a Benbo Mk1, remained aloof from my personal tragedy.

Your comment, as always, appreciated.

Alan

P.S. Good day at Shildon?

This is just so beautiful. It's the length of the trickles. I've tried photographing drips (no comments please) but never had much success, the flow of the water here is perfect.
Interesting, I'm wary of using portrait for obviously vertical subjects, I would instinctively go landscape, cut off the top and add space on the left. I reckon a 'tall' subject is difficult to compose for satisfyingly in a vertical frame - but this works. There's a sense of gravity, tugging everything downwards.
Moira
Edit - ah yes, photographer's first instinct, save the camera, your own body will self-repair more quickly. Shildon was enjoyable, though I only got one picture that I'm satisfied with. Bill photographed more flowers...

Thanks, Moira. You are as visually perceptive as ever, you should do l/scapes BlushBlushWinkWink -I tend to agree with you about 'tall' subjects.
....and yes, "Hmm...there's a sense of gravity!"...... my very words, as I went arse over tit.

Shildon. I'm starting to worry about Bill. You putting something in his cocoa, or what?

Great result, however painfully obtained.
Like the contrast of the veil of water LHS, & the mossy RHS, with streams of water disappearing into darkness....
Excellent.

Beautiful format and composition, perfect shutter speed and focus and I love the hint of leaves through the water. A beauty Alan.

light-box....tranny..... items from pre-history, when the only 'digital' was the kind of examination a doctor would give you with his finger.
Award gratefully accepted, Rod, with many thanks.

Kenny, just so long as you weren't in a phone box as a tranny.

Dave- tripod with medium-format film cameras, always preferable. But no longer use MF or film, don't do low light or long exposure photography, have IS on lens and clean ISO 800, therefore no tripod needed. Freedom! You know it makes sense.

Rende- what river... ? ........for pity's sake don't you start!!! Grin


Thanks guys.Smile

An exceptional good composition both elements working vertically alongside other extremely well. Whilst the deluge of water is softened somewhat by the 1/8th of a second exposure one can still admire its power and its transparency. The lush green hues on the moss laden overhanging rocks have been perfectly reproduced in post production. A great image...
