A quick view of born2bongo's recent activity.

  • Caerfanell Falls

    Thanks for your kind words. It is a lovely spot, a few miles out of Brecon. We were there for 3 days at the end of October, starting in the Wye Valley, and it wasn't till Brecon that we broke out of heavy mist. I met 2 local photographers (by their accent Smile ) at Tal-y-Bont reservoir. They told me about this place but said it is normally much more of a torrent. Wales had had a surprisingly dry late summer and Autumn. It was such a short visit and I'm hoping to get more time there soon.

    This photo was also my first attempt at focus stacking

    Good comments, thank you very much. There was a reason for the close crop. I'm hoping the pile of black plastic silage bags will be gone next time I pass.

    I've done all the changes in Lightroom and I do have a very contrasty version as well, but I just preferred this. I'm still honing my dodge and burn skills so I'll practice some more and maybe upload another person

    Thanks again

    OK, this is one of my first goes at critique and I'm not claiming to be an expert ...

    Nice sharp foreground and some good bokeh with the lights. I'm a little distracted by the person in the background and whatever those grey vertical lines are. Maybe if they were made darker so they faded into the shadows more.

    I'm also left wondering what the rest of the little man looks like, but maybe there was nothing to see

  • A wet day in Tulle

    We went back to Tulle on a better day with a better camera and they'd only painted the wall white! Not the same at all

    I took a similar photo in Chepstow the other week - row of houses with bow windows. I was closer to the row so the view was further down the street. Looking at yours, I could have done the same thing and I wish I had. Thanks for reminding me to move around more Grin

    Thank you for sharing this Cyril, and sorry you've had so little response.

    I'm not going to critique it because I'm looking at it on my office monitor, designed for processing spreadsheets and never calibrated in it's entire (and long) life. As far as I can see it looks sharp where it needs to be and it's a very pleasing image. It's always nice to know how someone accomplished something, so thanks again for taking the trouble
