The Yarra river in Melbourne...

Z and 28 - 45



Flinders Street platform - the front foyer is having some work done which is a pity, as it's quite a building...


Lovely shots, Paul. Flinders Street station is wonderful (and smashing to see Melbourne shots - used to spend a lot of time there!).

And thanks for your kind words on my Sydney shots. Maybe you will jag a good sunrise on your one remaining day here!

I got my first test roll back shot on my new Pentax 67. More than anything I wanted to see if there were light leaks, or significant exposure problems that might indicate a shutter issue. The photos were lightly overexposed, but that may have been more the TTL meter than the shutter. Or maybe it was just a bright sunny New Mexican day. All were shot in Ilford FP4+. The first one is very busy, but I wanted to see how well it rendered lots of detail.

I'm loving this camera.

If it’s overexposed, it’s the meter or the way you are pointing it (this is not evaluative matrix metering )—not the shutter. 67 shutters are quartz timed and very accurate, unlike most mechanically timed shutters.

that's good to know. For this roll I trusted the TTL meter and shot at box speed (125) and I didn't develop it myself. I've already shot a test roll of Ektar that I haven't developed, and I have a bunch of TMAX 100 and 400 on the way. I have a handheld incident meter (Sekonic 28C2), but at some point I'd like to get a 1 degree spot so I can understand metering a little more.

If you are going to use the TTL meter, use it with a gray card because the meter can easily be faked out by bright or dark areas in the frame.

New Mexico

abruzzi-- Speaking of New Mexico, I have done some shooting there over the years, 6x7 of course. Near Ghost Ranch, 55-100 zoom, at sunrise.

Very nice colors. I live in the south (the hot part, both temp and chilis), but I get up north a lot in trips. My next destination up there is the Bisti Badlands. Last time I tried the weather didn’t cooperate.

Wonderful. Love the flowers and the stratified color of the monolith.

Thanks, the flowers were a very rare occurrence for New Mexico. As I recall, the cliffs were Entrada Sandstone.
