    I've not tried the grads yet Rob, I've been out cycling a lot for the last few months and the photography has taken a back seat. However the shadows are lengthening now so I must try and get out early and late!

    The Random Picture Thread

    An interesting optical effect at Birmingham airport ...



    It's actually 2 identical perforated sliding doors one in front of the other - but gives this illusion of a hexagonal cellular structure.

    Thanks Mark, you are spot on :) that was taken a few years back, I've picked up Minolta 135mm/F2.8 prime that day for peanuts and needed open space to try it on..

    It's about 2m x 2m - quite impressive detailing too.

    Thanks. I had no idea what it was. I'm not normally into bikes but there were so many nice details on that bike I had to take a few snaps. It's a work of art (IMHO). Here's the whole thing....

    A walk into Gloucester on Sunday morning reminded me why town planners from the 60's should be shot :)

    Agreed. Gloucester town centre is a real mish mash. And much of it sits poorly next to the surrounding buildings. Shame as there are some nice bits around the cathedral quarter.

    Ian.I am no photographer but that last picture is just superb.When viewing it the way it has been applied makes it look like it has a zoom in function.

    Thanks, Tony. It's really all down to the camera. I'm just beginning to get used to it, and exploring its capabilities, but it's a beautiful piece of kit, and has reignited my love for photography.

    There's something about the photos produced by a Leica that sets them apart from other cameras. It wasn't something that I rushed into, and I'm grateful to Dunk for his advice. I'm glad that I took the plunge.

    Hope you're ok.

    Thanks Mark, much appreciated. I got lucky with this one... almost decided not to carry my tripod and ND + polarizing filters up there, but am glad I did! :)

    Like that.
    Wish I could get my ND filters to produce such images.
    I struggle to get the long exposure times, even stopped right down on low ISO.
    Can you post details of setup?

    Sure, no problem:

    * The camera was a Fuji X100S with wide-angle converter attached, so 28mm focal length in 35mm terms.

    * I said above that I put on an ND filter, but I was thinking of another camera - this one has a built-in ND filter, so I'm sure I just used that. It's equivalent to a 3-stop external ND.

    * B+W circular polarizer adjusted to kill the reflections off the water and reveal the cool whirlpool at lower right.

    * I'd have to check the metadata to confirm, but I believe this was 5 seconds at either f/11 or f/16, ISO 200.

    * Post-processing in Lightroom, season to taste... :)

    And thanks for the compliments guys, I am still learning my way around a lens but I do appreciate it very much.

    - Matt

    Another long exposure of a different waterfall in Oregon. This one was shot with a Canon S100, using its built-in ND filter, 2-second exposure, handheld while leaning against a tree if you can believe it.

    Z - I have an SRB 10 stop filter, (77mm thread but you can get adaptor rings) spare - if you'd like it FOC drop me a PM.

    Slight colour cast can be sorted in LR - 10 stops can get some really nice cloud movement and blurring of water... It was used for this:

    Nice one Rob. I've been enjoying this fine weather out cycling for ages now, my diary tells me I did a hot 60 miler in April, and the cameras have been somewhat neglected since then. Autumn now so must make the effort to try the 5D on some rich colours.

    (Thanks for the offer on the ND filter Rob, I'll have to check the diameter of my lenses - pretty sure I don't have any 77mm)

    I like it, nicely abstract. A step up/down ring will get a 77mm circular filter on to a smaller diameter lens.
