Same image rotated and flipped to gain second image. If you are shooting straight down there is no "up", therefore both versions of the same shot are valid. Last of the fall flowers in Toronto.

 

Full frame Canon 5Ds hand held 100mm 2.8 Macro 1/200 F11 ISO 400. This is a small flower, so F11 for focus depth on central bloom, but F11 made rest of image too in focus. Therefore blurred and darkened rest of image in software to place more emphasis on sharp, properly exposed, central bloom.

I'm really missing being able to travel, especially to Bali, where we go to scuba dive & explore. These images scream Bali to me and remind me of the beauty that is waiting there.

Some from the USA over ten years ago:

Tourists from Vermont at a Skyline Drive overlook.  Took a bit of massaging to get the background mountains to show without making the convertible overprocessed.  2009 Chrysler Sebring convertible.

Tourists photographing deer in Big Meadows.  During the autumn hunting season, a number of deer come out of the non-protected areas into Shenandoah National Park and seem particularly attracted to Big Meadows, perhaps because they can spot coyotes at a distance easier.  They tend to either ignore people or try to persuade them to ignore the "Don't feed the Wildlife" signs.

Peppermint stick insect. Deeply weird critter endemic to the local rainforest.

OH's nice pub lunch today, my first time in a pub since February. This should be in the "good thing today" thread.

Barbary duck with red cabbage, though I had the less photogenic steak and gorgonzola pie.

To me, this image represents the epitomy of the Australian Outback.

Cacoory Bore and its steaming 85C hot water at sunrise, near Birdsville, Queensland, Australia

We camped there and it was magic. We had the Bush to ourselves.

Making an effort to include people. Music night in a crazy Outback pub, the Daly Waters Pub, Northern Territory.

There was some nice light the other day. I wonder . . . what would you call that thing the lady is balancing on? 

 

Dangerous.

Ah. Thanks, Phil. I hope you're staying safe down there on your Spanish island.

We're doing ok here as far as safe goes! Covid figures are going down again...Now just need to get the tourist figures up a bit. 

Economy is taking a beating and unemployment is pretty bad.

All my private commissioned work has dried up, but fortunately a few direct sales, Alamy and the OH pension is keeping us on the go.

My old classic car which I sold three weeks ago in order to finance a change to an electric car. Less worrying about what will fail, less wrenching, less oil on the garage floor but I do miss the idea of having a classic car and that V8 rumble. 🙂

Tried to do something a bit abstract. These beech trees ?

My attempt at being a news photographer/photojournalist (which i'm not).

The colours represent the Armenian tricolour flag.
