    A week or so ago a Canadian posting as Helen Silverberg suggested Aussies
    were about to enter WINTER!
    Yep... Winter it is.

  3. heheh - *I* like the dippy horizon (see below).

    I've already posted this to ...35mm, but it needs repeating, I
    think... herewith a cut down version.

    The correct spelling is "flensing".

    "This was the scene (slightly modified) used as the back drop for some
    Sunset wedding portraits using a 24 - 70 lens."
    How that scene could transmogrify into a Sunset has me intrigued.
    Me? I would have shot it at... Sunset! Fancy that!

    "This scene from a camera RAW file was first developed with Adobe
    LightRoom (to recover the highlight clouds)"
    Hmm. Those clouds still look rather burnt... The large glary area to
    the right
    of middle is very distracting.

    "and then processed further in Photoshop to expand the dynamic range"
    Too much, imo. HDR is EASY to overuse. The scene looks vaguely
    unreal.

    "and correct perspective distortion. Approximately 18% of the scene
    was lost during this distortion correction."
    In the process you seem to have introduced a weird bowing of the
    horizon, which is noticeably lowest just to the right of the fourth
    palm.. Bent horizons are not a good thing.

    "I am in two minds about DR expansion although it does produce detail
    in a range not normally possible."
    Clearly you are right to have this attitude. That was a fine
    demonstration of the traps - from which we will all learn to do it
    better. (O;

    None at all except I happen to like the outlook from my front door and
    thought I'd share it.
