I suspect you are referring to the alien's power to make plants develop/lose flowers in the time it takes for you to move less than twenty yards.. :)

Do I get a t-shirt?

Bingo.. well, kind of.. almost.. time was the other perspective..

Congratulations, you were almost a winner! :lol:

Solent shipping - the container ships do tend to dominate the scene!

I have lots of new photos from the flowers and want to post here.

First of all, I have to move my face photos from before. They look terrible.

Wow, Sarah - that's superb. Personally I would have maybe got down a bit lower and used some of the plants in the foreground to get a few blurry leaves at the bottom instead of the knees and toes..

but ok, I'm only saying that because:

1. My toes aren't very decorative.

2. I'm jealous of the photo!

I would have loved to get a bit lower, but I was afraid if I moved any further I'd be on a trip over the edge. It's hard to tell in the photo, but about another foot ahead of my toes is the beginning of a really steep drop. (I climbed over and was leaning against the retaining wall in the shot)

I did take more photos sans feet though. ;)

And thank you!

actually the toes gives an interesting spatial sense to the panorama ... I would have stretched feet out ... into the shot ... but that's just me ...

I feel it have added to the composition and made the view a deeper dimension into the shot ... but as it is if you feel your toes takes away something from the photo you can easily crop it but I would say that's a shame ... because it does add to the frame ... and the colors works ...

Thread has gone quiet. How about a new theme? Dawn and dusk.

Last night, I tried (and sorta failed...) to capture a more arty close-up of what's left of the 'Super'Moon, but the clouds just wouldn't quite play ball at the right time. I had a long telephoto ready, but it never made enough of an appearance that I could do anything useful with that lens..

So instead, here's a wide angle view of the scene - you should be able to make out the Moon's shape below the lit clouds, just right and up from centre...

gallery_95887_13_78847.jpg

Sony Alpha 57 on tripod with 18-55 zoom, 25 seconds @ f5.6, ISO 100. Image taken from my backyard.... Oh, alright.. no it wasn't.. :D

I had to drive about 30km to a little park on the river - that's the skyline of 'Surfer's Paradise' aka Gold Coast, Queensland. On the other side of those hideously beautiful buildings (mostly hotels & apartments) is a long and fairly ordinary, but ridiculously popular, beach.. Not really my sort of lifestyle, but quite pretty from a distance, I guess..

Gold Coast photo's look beautiful at night. Perth is not bad at night but doesn't compare to some of the photos I've seen of the Gold Coast.

Perth at night:

Not bad looking city but lately we've had a few crackpot architects building crazy things like the new arena:

Hmm. dunno about that - I visited Perth about 20 years ago and just loved it - a beautiful, friendly, well-laid-out city, plus the view from Kings park (?) over the city as dusk falls and the city lights up is just breathtaking. I have some slides somewhere, I should dig them up and scan them.. Two things that the Gold Coast has (well, probably Burleigh Heads to be more precise) going for it is the wonderful & frequent thunderstorms and the beach nightlife (with fire twirlers, drumming circles, etc). One summer night I was there (without a flippin' camera of course), and all of this activity was going on, and there were multiple lightning strikes silhouetting the buildings behind - just a breathtaking sight.. One day I'll catch it.

In the meantime, may I suggest another topic* - how's about.. Symmetries. Here's my contribution entitled.. '(not yet Blowin' in the Wind..'

* But I reserve my right to return to the Perspectives theme - I've got a really cool idea that may take a while to implement..
