Landscape / Panorama over Bogota from Monserrate
« on: August 05, 2014, 11:25:59 PM »
A composite from seven shots. 800 x 103 pixels doesn't do it justice unless you can see it big...

And the panorama over Bogota by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

Thanks for looking

Street & City / Bogota, Colombia
« on: July 24, 2014, 11:24:41 PM »
Some of you were kind enough to give me some advice on travelling to Colombia. It is still early days, but I thought I would share some of the results from my first photographic day. On my first day here I went to the Centro Storico, also known as Candelaria, and took a shed load of photographs, which I have filleted viciously, but there are still far too many to share here. So here is a couple of examples of the street vendors and also of the city:

EXIF: the same except 82mm and at 1/200 sec

I found the light very tricky... Anyway, if you are interested there is a whole load more here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsjZVYz6U

Canon General / Colombia

I am off to Colombia for a few weeks shortly. Mainly working in Bogota, but hopefully getting around a bit as well. Any advice? Photographically particularly, but other thoughts also welcome!

Thank you

Photography Technique / Photographs in the "Blue Hour"
« on: May 04, 2014, 10:09:14 AM »
Per Wikipedia: "The blue hour is the period of twilight... where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light". You guys all know that, but in some ways to me it is even more special than the golden hour. Well here are two shots I was determined to get in the "blue hour". I would love to see other "Blue Hour" photographs...

The Blue Hour 1 by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: 5Diii, 24-70 2.8L @ 70mm, ISO100, 25 seconds at f7.1

The Blue Hour 2 by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: As above except @30mm, 15 seconds at f14.0

Thanks for looking.

Landscape / Marlow weir - night/moonlit
« on: September 21, 2013, 07:07:41 PM »
A couple of shots from the other night. I am not a great user of tripods (generally too bulky to carry round all the time), but I had little option for these exposures:


Marlow Weir in moonlight by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: 5Diii, 24-105mmL at 24mm, ISO 500, 30secs at f10.0

I cannot choose between these first two...


Marlow Weir in moonlight by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: 32mm, 25 secs at f10.0

And the last one:

EXIF: 47mm, 20 secs at f10.0

Abstract / Party time
« on: April 26, 2013, 06:43:06 PM »
I have been travelling an awful lot in the last three or four weeks, so have barely even dropped by the forum for some time... However, on my recent trip to LA, we went to a party at California Live, where I took my 5Diii and 1.4 nifty-fifty. Here are a couple of party time photographs:


2Y2A4218 by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: ISO 10000, 1/5000 sec, f1.4 (you may well ask why didn't i turn the ISO down - it was late, I was in the wrong time zone, and had had a glass or two of wine... and in such circumstances you cannot believe how fast the glasses can move)


2Y2A4172 by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF (and excuses): as above


2Y2A4165 by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: 1/2500 sec


2Y2A4153 by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: 1/2000 sec


2Y2A4149 by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: 1/2000 sec

Thanks for looking. I may well post others from the trip on other sections. If you want to see more look here: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjERPw5N

Street & City / Margaret Thatcher's funeral
« on: April 17, 2013, 04:42:13 PM »
I don't particularly want to enter into a political debate on this forum, but I thought I would share these two that I took today as the procession passed near my office:


Second hand emotion by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: 5Diii, 24-105 @ 105mm, ISO2000, 1/2000 sec at f4.5

Taken as the coffin was transferred from the hearse to the gun carriage.


:-) by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: Exactly the same.

I did not necessarily warm to Margaret Thatcher nor did I agree with all of her politics, but I do not like the jubilation at her death. Nevertheless, I couldn't help myself and I had to take this photograph...

Comments (photographic rather than political) welcome!

Thanks for looking
