    Hey, Robert. Welcome back. Thought we'd lost you.

    That's a very, very nice one to come back with. You could actually sit and stare at that four hours!

    Not me. It makes me feel giddy It is very well shot though really consistent lighting and good b/w conversion

    Hello.

    There were a lot of reasons for not having time nor fun for taking pictures. The main reason was that I had so much PC alike stuff to do on the job that I could not relax in the evening by doing PP. I have a new gilrfriend. Luckily she also does photography :-) And finally I broke my beloved 70-200 EF IS f:/4 lense. It fall down about one and a half meter onto stone tiles. But as you can see, I am back.

    @wirefox
    No artificial lighting at all was used. The picture was taken indoors on a cloudy, rainy day. The room had lots of windows and therefore a very diffuse lighting.

    bye
    Robert

    WARNING: Under no circumstances must you follow Donald's advice. I did...and now I can't walk straight or drive a car!

    Impressive shot Robert. Could I ask a mundane question - what is it ?

    Re: Conical

    Ok, you got me; I'm gonna have to ask what it is?
    (or what is it?)

    That's what I need; a new wife (one that's interested in photography)

    Hello,

    if it begins circling around before you, it's time to go to bed.

    It is the inside section of a horn antenna that was used on a radiotelescope. It ist the same antenna technology that most satellte dishes use. As you can imagine it is a bit larger. The horn has a diameter of about 0,6m and is about 2m long.

    Hi Robert, nice work

    It's very Bridget Riley, especially if you scroll up and down when viewing.

    If Donald can sit and stare at it for hours it must say something profound about his inner being, but I can't quite work out what...

    For most of the rest of us, I'd imagine that Katy's interpretation sums it up perfectly

    Probably something quite disturbing. But I've led a very sheltered life.

    Thanks Robert,

    I should have guessed, perhaps

    Cheers,
