Re: Just a selection

Hi Robert, I like your images - some great angled shots there. It's always good to find new perspectives and use of DOF. The pidgeon image looks good on top of the stone structure. The flower looks good but as was suggested previously a little more brightness and colour saturation could make it beco...

Re: Just a selection

Hi Phil, Thank you for your very kind words - much appreciated. I really enjoyed Trevor's images - especially the ones with the rain drops. Like you have said, they look like diamonds on the branches and are very sharp. The other images are also very good - love the different textures and materials.

Oh yes - I'd be very interested in the astro photography workshop. The images shown look fantastic.

Re: July Meeting

Hi Michele
Just read about your efforts to help in the Covid-19 fight. Well done for the mask making enterprise and for the amount of money you have helped to raise for charity. Fantastic effort!

Re: Just a selection

Thank you, Trevor - very much appreciated. Perhaps we could all do this again in the future but with a different venue / theme.

Lisa, I hope you are feeling better after your treatment on Tuesday.

Re: Sunset photography trip to Arlesford Church Ruins and Arlesford Creek

Hi Mark, Yes indeed it was great to get out with others to get some good pictures. Nice seeing the group again since the monthly meetings have been suspended. It was a really good idea from Richie to set this up - very photogenic scenerios.

Re: Just a selection

Hi Trevor, I really love all your images - you're right about the rain bringing freshness in colour and an extra element to the shot (i.e., water drops). The large tree taken at Marks Hall is just full of natural character in it's twisted branches and rough textures. The old shed is also very dramat...

Re: Sunset photography trip to Arlesford Church Ruins and Arlesford Creek

Hi Everybody,

Richie - yes, I should be at the Arlesford ruins. Be nice to see some of the others from the group again.

Phil - Love the image of the Hollyhock bloom. Excellent colour and detail.

Re: Sunset photography trip to Arlesford Church Ruins and Arlesford Creek

Actually, the seond of Phil's images wasn't monochrome like I said. I should have said it was a b&w theme.

Re: Sunset photography trip to Arlesford Church Ruins and Arlesford Creek

Hi All, Phil, your foliage images are really great - love the colours of the first and the monochrome theme of the second. Nice use of IR techniques and subsequent 'tweaking'. The idea of the photoshoot in Arlesford sounds great. I'd love to be there - be nice to see the group reunited again. Stay s...

Hi Jim,

Wow! I like those images! Fantastic detail at that level of enlargement. I wish you well on your on-line course and from the results you've shown here I'm sure it's going very well. Kepp it coming!

Re: June Meeting

Hi Phil,

I like the colour of the boats standing out from the greyness of the beach - nice technique in isolating them.

Here are some recent images.

June Meeting

Hi everyone, Hope you are all keeping safe and well. According to the CCS programme this month there should have been a club photoshoot to Mersea Island. Ideas of interest during the shoot were long exposure images, seascapes, beach huts, etc. As circumstances prevented us from actually going to the...

Re: May Meeting

Hi Phil. Yes, indeed - I just discovered that the name on the crane is not the manufacturer but the name of the port of Imperia. I can imagine it was lovely to drive from Nice over the border into Italy and then along to Imperia. I've only ever driven in France once, from Santander in Spain up to Ca...

Re: May Meeting

Morning Phil. Yes, the phone was indeed there to show some measure of scale but the old/new comparison is also valid.

I really love your images, especially the night shot of the cranes with the black sky - very dramatic and imposing. It would be very interesting to know where they are.

Hi All, What a charming old garage - conjures up visions of how the world was before eco-friendly vehicles. I have to admit though, I wouldn't have guessed the location in a very long time! Totally unfamiliar with the North of England (not much better with the Midlands area either)! Really love all ...

Re: May Meeting

Great Images, Trevor. Like you say, the underside of the bridge works well as an abstract as it seems to be following vanishing point contours - well composed. The ruggedness of the construction with the large number of rivets works well. The beach scene has a wonderful dreamy quality as the sky and...

Hi Colin, I have to confess I couldn't say where the machine is (possibly in your workshop) but I suspect it is a Bridgeport CNC vertical milling machine. I seem to recognise the Acu-rite x-y head controller and the Transwave rotary power inverter driving the motor. Possibly used for restoring motor...

Ian, I also agree with you about the engineering images. I really like yours also - the interplay of the sunlight against the verticals of the fence str...
