Mthoba

Hello Rosemary,

Just to say that I saw him again today and this time he was very neatly dressed in jacket and tie. And without the "cosmetic". He confirmed that it is Mthoba and that it is...

To SnapRJW: Ochre

Hello Rosemary,

Ochre occurs 40Km to the west from here. I have now discovered that this probably is Mthoba which is the root of a plant that they dry and grind to a fine powder. While they are...

To SnapRJW: Traditions lost?

Dear Rosemary,
I have the same "questions" and "reservations", for lack of better terms, but I should rather not criticise as I do not know the real reasons for the deviation from very old...

To jmdias: Grain

Hello Jorge,
I agree with you about the somewhat grainy texture. At the time I was just "emerging" from years of film photography and knew very little about digital processing. I also had a tendency...

Hello Dawn,

To SnapRJW: Cloning

Dear Rosemary,

Hello Dawn,
Yes, as I say in my note, I did not consider this to be of particular photographic merit but I do think it has at least some scientific/tourism/general knowledge relevance. I have...

To SnapRJW: Resizing

Hello Rosemary,

Yes thank you I did as we discussed and I also optimized at 72 dpi, as per your advice, instead of much higher. I think I did only very slight sharpening, or none - can't remember...

To maloutim: Dress

Hi Marie-Louise,

This is how she normally dresses when she is on duty. However, this time she dressed up for the photo and so I am sure she took care for her clothes to be very clean. The white...

To siudzi: Sharpness

Hello Gosia,
Thank you for taking time over this image. It was taken at ISO 6400 as it was still very dark long before dawn and so sharpness had to suffer. I do like the result ... it was just me...

To thebest: Oversharpened

Hi Dawn,

To anode: Strikkie

Jou waarnemingsvermoë is ongelooflik! Strikkie op die wiel? Waar? En toe sien ek dit ook raak. Miskien sou ek dan ook 'n beter fotograaf gewees het. Lekker naweek.

Hello Dawn, Just last week there was a report on the news of a passing motorist having persuaded someone not to jump. This bridge really has become a suicide icon in the area.
