Re: I Wonder

In 2016, the winner Tim Laman only used a GoPro camera to capture his image of a critically endangered Bornean orangutan high up in the canopy. https://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover/news/2016/october/wildlife-photographer-of-the-year-winners-announced.html I am, of course, aware of that shot and how it wa...

I Wonder

I finally got to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition yesterday. It closes at the end of the month after a lengthy run run and I expected it would be quiet as a result. Not a bit of it. There was a sign at the entrance saying it had sold out for the day. Fortunately, I was still able...

Re: Shot of the Week June 2019 – Iggy

Too colourful? Could do with a bit of desaturation, but there is a wide variation in tonality. I am thinking that the central area at the bottom could be lightened to even things up. Maybe straighten the verticals as well? I would also be tempted to darken the bright area on the right and try flipp...

Re: Colour Perception Test

8/10 for me. I got one of the yellow sequences wrong and was careless when I did the last one, failing to check the top of the character. It is a tough test, although I am not sure how much it proves when it comes to real life application. If it is that difficult to determine the variation between t...

Re: Colour Perception Test

I'm going blind? I have heard that the way we perceive colour changes as we age. In particular, our sensitivity to blue decreases. Here are a couple of non photography related links which look at the issue and there is bound to be loads more on the interweb. (My search term was "seeing blue in...

Re: Mindfulness?
