Posted by Art on 09 March 2021 - 12:10 PM

Darryl's books, in my opinion, are the best. You only need one.

Very nice, guess we will be hearing about this any day now on this side of the pond!




#264735 Planet Music

Very cool, will give it a listen. I jumped on board of the Floyd bandwagon with DSotM and played the grooves off The Wall. But lost interest after than. They were a little too progressive/psychedelic for my tastes and as they drifted more in the direction, the less interest I had.


#264725 My other hobby (I)...

That is so impressive, Herman!

I love the 747 you posted for Mark.

Take it from the Edmonton Airport and do a fly by over Toronto! ;) 

Do a circuit around the CN Tower in downtown Toronto. This is a very impressive program!




#264724 B&W conversions

I am a big fan of B&W as well.  Much prefer it for dramatic subjects.




#264720 Moon and Mars pics

Posted by Art on 11 October 2020 - 10:20 PM

That is so cool.  Hoping to have a cloud free night in the next few days. This is when Mars will be the closest.  Well done!




#264622 My other hobby (I)...

Very impressive, Herman.  I just showed off your cockpit to my wife who is equally impressed.

Question:

You mention you saw the desert from 37,000 feet.  

 

How low can you go?

What details can you see?

 

Curious.




#264621 Sand Sculptures - Theme WW2

Posted by Art on 04 September 2020 - 11:14 AM

That is an amazing display, thanks for sharing that, Herman.

Mark,

For long lasting sand sculptures you need quarry sand. You can look up there formula, there is a mix that makes it bond and weather better.  Regardless, they don't last forever in the elements (unless they are perhaps treated with a special coating of some sort).




#264619 My only shot with a 500 f/4

Posted by Art on 04 September 2020 - 10:55 AM

Very nice, Bill, you made good use of the opportunity.




#264519 Nikon Z5 vs Z6

Posted by Art on 13 August 2020 - 10:30 PM

Thanks, Herman. A good read.

 

Nicely done little camera.  Looks like they are going for the more serious entry level Amateur photographer.

 

One very important thing I am not impressed with .... 4.5 fps.  Way too slow for my needs.  Looked good until I read that.

Oh well, still looking for a compelling reason to jump into mirrorless... haven't found it yet.
