    Photo 10 the 2016 Collection

    Wide-angle photography is not easy, sure when it is a landscape or cityscape, point, frame, shoot and voila!
    But there is so much more to it than that, the finer details, the wide scope of life and more, much more.
    My wife, Geraldine, is so good at finding these, I often think she is a natural. She will deny it but she does have an eye for it.

    I got challenged on Facebook to post a mono picture each day for five days and nominate someone else to do the same each day by Axel Bührmann.
    Challenge accepted and here is my first, Propeller and I thus challenge good friend Andrew Stevenson to post a mono picture each day for five days and nominate someone else to do the same each day.
    I think this is a great idea to get the creative juices going…

    I went for a training day at AFB Swartkop, I missed it all but since we were there we took a walk around, this was Pasty Dawn.

  • Pathway to the Houses

    Pathway to the Houses

    Click image to see larger/full version
    On the way to the school houses at St John’s College there is this large pathway. There are various pieces of arts as well as access to the underground hall and many classroom blocks, it was obvious to me that these were relatively recent additions to St John’s College.
    This one of my more artistic HDR and one where I am learning some new techniques both HDR and photography wise. I literally broke a half dozen rules, starting with “never shoot into the sun”. By the way, you will notice some chromatic aberration between the roof and the right buildings, it seems that my skills have hit a barrier. I figure it out and maybe re-post a “fixed” version.
    Right now my job is requiring most of my time and I may skip a day here and there but as I say I do this for fun not fame, so see you soon.
