    Uluru (Ayres Rock)

    Interesting perspective Dave. The centre image on the top row of my collage is actually of people making their way up the rock. Bit hard to make them out in such small pic of course. There is an appeal from the indigenous owners not to climb the rock these days but busloads of them walk past the signs and attempt it . It seems 35 people have died doing so and I believe that it will no longer be an option from the end of this month.

    Uluru (Ayres Rock)

    My husband and I visited Uluru in August of this year and I have put together this collage of some of the photos I took in the couple of days we were there. Uluru is such an Australian icon and we are used to seeing many images of it in the tourist promotions. I thought I would be disappointed when I actually got to see it but I was not. It is a very impressive chunk of red rock that stands out in the flat desert landscape. But it's greatest appeal is when you get close and can see the effects of time and the elements. The other amazing aspect of this visit was the numbers of tourists of all nationalities who were there. I hadn't realized the part that digital photography and social media are playing in the growth of the tourist industry. It seems that the object of most peoples travel's is to take, or have taken, a photo of themselves posed in front of well recognized tourist attractions and no doubt to post them on various social media. It was a revelation!

    Photoshop 2019

    Lovely to see you on the Forum again Doreen. It has prompted me to a little more active participation and I plan to post a collage of 9 images from a trip to Central Aust. earlier this year as soon as I've finished this message. All the best, joan

    I like the sound of your photo group Lithman. No need for a committee, competitions etc. and I bet you don't have too many rules either!

    What image is better?

    Did the clouds obscure the sun abit between taking the first and second shot Barry? The second shot is better in many respects but apart from the distraction of the burnt out area of sky I think I prefer the first.

    August Competition – Closed

    Liked the way you organized this exercise Barry, it was interesting to look at the scores of the judges but it was your commentary that offered some real assistance. Value your feedback, happy that you seem to be planning to take on that role in future competitions. joan

    My vote is for an open subject, and detailed critique. I'm sitting on the fence re marks and winners, I'm undecided on whether they bring something of value to the competition in general and the participants in particular.

    Another good video from you Dave, thanks for the link. I loved the music and the drama you introduced in to a static subject. Thought you were going to crash your drone there for a moment.

    July 2018 Newsletter

    I'm so sorry to hear that both you and your husband are dealing with life changing health issues Doreen. I gathered from your past posts that you had some health problems but so much worse for you if you both have these difficulties to deal with. Let's hope the treatment does deliver improved circumstances for you and in the meantime keep smiling and keep up the photography and your involvement in this forum. Best wishes, joan p.s. I thought in your earlier post that you had made a 'typo' and had meant to type 'hobbies' not 'hubbies'

    July 2018 Newsletter

    Enjoyed the newsletter thanks Barry, look forward to reading it each month. There's always something useful in it. But I am concerned about Doreen's 'health and hubbies'. Hope you've only one of the latter and that your health is improving Doreen. And that Carol's back is improving too Barry. joan

    Camera Club Rules

    Take your point re prints Dave but I would hope that if I enter a digital image in a comp and the judge suspects a bit of sloppy/inept editing that he/she scrutinizes it at 100% to maximize the chance that he/she identifies my editing short comings and makes me aware of them.
