Re: Historic motor racing photo

The race programme had most of the calculations already done, for the Handicap section - all I did was check the distance on a map and line up the numbers after subtracting 1.5 miles worth of time for each car. It does assume they'd be going flat out for that distance, but since it's the last bend o...

Re: Historic motor racing photo

Knowing that it was the 1932 race, we can narrow down the time the photo was taken even further... The corner looks to be ~1.5 miles before the end of the lap, so taking into account car speeds and handicaps from the programme, and knowing that #31 retired after 13 laps, the most likely encounter of...

Re: Master of Photography 2019

Sidar's second image confused me, until I realised it's probably a garden/allotment. I still don't think the image works, nor his first one - a busy shot that looks more like supervision than the demonstration it presumably is. Jan picked five images - I don't think the first or last ones add to the...

Re: Master of Photography 2019

Not sure if any of them particularly appeal to me, but I'd agree with that.

Perhaps a bit unfair in that a horse is a more difficult animal to photograph, whilst the donkeys seem far more docile and charismatic.

I don't get Maria's first two images with the hands though?

Re: Historic motor racing photo

Not as much work as you might think - the heritage section of Shell's website gave the release of AeroShell as 1928, and another website showed The Autocar was 4d until 1940. Looking at races between those dates, a description of the Ards circuit just happened to mention the "Central Bar" ...

Re: Historic motor racing photo

It is/was the Ards TT circuit in County Down. The corner is in Dundonald, and looks very different today . Date-wise, the road-based track was in use between 1928 and 1936 for the RAC Tourist Trophy races (until two fatal accidents at the 1936 race). Assuming it was one of those events, since some o...

Re: Master of Photography 2019

I wouldn't be surprised if Richard was knocked out - he would have had a stronger set with just images 1/2/5, and even then those are a style of images that wouldn't necessarily score well with a camera club judge. I don't think Robin's middle three images are successful/cohesive enough. I'm undecid...

Re: Master of Photography 2019

4 hours to capture integration of various communities in 3 to 5 images. Interesting that they all opted for the upper limit - were they presented/judged as panels, or just a series of images? They are not displayed in a good way on the website, which is a shame. Who would you eliminate? It looks li...

Re: Mindfulness?

I read the quote as saying "pay attention to your environment", whereas mindfulness seems to be going a step further and having awareness of that attention? Either way, it's definitely easy to be over-focused, whether shooting landscape/nature/street/sports/whatever - they all benefit from...
