To paololg: Ciao Paolo!

Ciao Paolo,
Grazie per il tuo gentilissimo commento, ho apprezzato molto. Vero che questi alberi sembrano usciti da un quadro di De Chirico? Mi ha sempre affascinato questo posto ed è stato...

To borax: vignetting

Hi Stephane,
I was actually surprised by the vignetting with the Canon 17-40, at least at 17 mm. In this case I corrected the falloff in luminosity in the bottom corners but decided to leave it in...

To Floydian: gates

Hi Henk,
There are in fact two gates at Sesriem, an external gate and an internal gate. The external gate I believe closes at dusk and allows you into the visitor centre and campground. The internal...

To Adrique: gate closing time

That's an interesting question and one that we asked ourselves. They keep track of the registration plates of all vehicles entering and I believe also the number of passengers, so I expect they would...

To sevy: Nikon vs Canon

Hi Yves,
Thanks for your comments and also for taking the time to look at my Namibia pictures on pbase.
I know it may seem surprising to go for the MII rather than the D700 and it was actually a...

Hi Aadiil,
Thanks for your critique, I'm glad you liked the picture and I appreciate your comments. However, I'm not quite sure what you mean about "never replying"... I've just checked and I see...

To cherryripe: Nikon vs Canon

Hi Nikki,
Thanks for your visit and critique. July/August is perhaps not the best time of year for the American southwest - at least I had a lot of haze, but was lucky with Monument Valley. I hope...

Hi Michèle

Hi Michèle,
I had a look at your Photoholik pages and enjoyed browsing your galleries there. You're right, it's nice to be able to post things without the constraints of TE and to organise work in...

To Dpbours: Sea and lighter area

Hi Dennis,
Thanks for your critique - I like the idea of the sea, I hadn't thought of it but you're right, you can imagine it being there just off to the side.
I'm not sure what happened with the...

To Dyerco: DV

Hi Phil,
Yes, it is certainly a unique and fascinating place but I think I will have to go back in winter. I took a couple of shots of Badwater at dawn that are passable but generally the light was...

Hi Mariusz,

To Merline: Hi Michèle

Hi Michèle,
Well it's nice to be back! I've been fine, just having a bit of time-out and reflection vis-a-vis TE. I need to find some kind of low-level sustainable TE presence that is worthwhile...

To jorgi: Little Prince

Hi Jeri,
Well, it's nice to be back after so long :)
Thank you, I liked a lot the idea of the Little Prince. As you may have realised, I'm very fond of fisheye images and I think it's at least...

To Babarf: fisheye curvature

Hi Fabien,
Thanks for your critique, I'm glad you liked the fisheye perspective on this one. I too quite like curved horizons, as long as they're not overdone.
I actually took a lot of US landscape...

To sevy: fisheyes

Hi Yves,
Yes, I left the distortion intentionally but in any case I think that any attempt at correction here would have ruined the foreground. In any case I quite like curved horizons (up to a...

To Karsten71: clouds

Hi Karsten,
Thanks for your comments, much appreciated. I used a one-stop graduated filter to darken the sky slightly.

Hi Kiks,

Re: To johnfreeman: Corner building

Hi Yves,
I think it's in situations like this that you have to resort to drastic measures :) (see workshop).
Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Hi Alexis,
This was actually the day after the Monument Valley shot, but fortunately the sky was still nice. I made an effort to be there around mid-day as I had read that that's the best time for...

Ciao Giorgio,
Sì, quel puntino bianco è la luna. Ovviamente nel file originale (e anche nel tiff di 800 pixel) si riconosce bene come forma a spicchio, ma nella versione jpg salvata per web diventa...

Yes, I bought the fisheye lens in San Francisco at the beginning of the trip and had fun experimenting with it, as you can see here. In fact I probably overused it, but it was nice for those big...

Re: To johnfreeman: filter (in english ;-)

Wow, 6 stops is a lot. I have a neutral grey filter I use for my 12-24 mm lens but really for taking shots of waterfalls in bright light conditions but I think that's 2 stops. You probably didn't...
