    Nice lighting and colours in both, although I think "Whiskey & Wine" is my favorite (oh, and that photo also )
    Seriously, that second shot is a standout!

    You once wrote about the way in which you 'convert' the content of, say a 3:2 into a 2:1. It was in response to one of Rob's images from way back in 2009.

    Did you do this in Whisky and Wine? And, if you can recall what I'm on about, could you repeat it?

    Donald

    ps: Bonus points for getting the spelling 'correct' and not using the Irish 'whiskey'!!

    Thanks Roger,

    The title was a bit of a play on words ... the water is from Whisky falls, and the wine should really be spelt whine ... I forgot my waders - got eaten by sandflies - got myself a few cuts and bruises, not to mention rather cold lens and some soggy clothing (you can guess which parts!) all while standing in the stream for a couple of hours ... so I was whining to myself!

    Hi Donald,

    I basically just crop off any excess top and bottom (which wasn't needed in this case) and then just tell Photoshop (Image, Image Size; resample=on) to make it eg 44 inches wide & 22 inches high @ 180 DPI. Most images handle the distortion pretty well.

    Does this help?

    PS: I did a bit of "Googling" to work out the right spelling

    Very nice Colin. I particularly like #2...the horizontal format - it pulls me into the scene. Makes me think the photographer got wet for this one but now you can see it was worth it.

    Thanks Chuck,

    It actually wasn't too bad - it's summer here and I 1/2 got used to the water temperature after a while. The hardest thing was trying to keep dry with the camera only about 400mm above the waterline.

    A 500mm lens 400mm above water? YEEEEEK!


    Yes, I did notice you spelled the word improperly, being a fa of the elixir from Auld Sod.

    400mm lens? Nah - F16-35 F2.8L USM II. Honestly, it all clamps into an arca-swiss style mount on a RRS BH-55 on the Gitzo 1548 - quote often I just sling it over my shoulder with the camera at the back when I'm moving around, without a 2nd thought - I don't think it'd be any more solid if it were welded.

    If you're interested, here's an iPhone shot of the setup ...

    I'm only a little embarrassed. I had 4 different photography sites open at once and confused one of the other site's posts with yours. He was using a 400 lens for a VW bug to get an odd perspective.
