Tasmania Clearfelling

Just a few pictures from an early morning trip to take some photographs of clear felling in the south of Tasmania around the Huon and Geeveston areas. The morning was rather miserable with constant rain which really limited photo opportunities, bit of a shame. This is one theme that I’m rather eager to photograph more.

The jury is still out with the panoramic? I’m a sucker for dark images but maybe a little too much especially around the background? What are your thoughts?

    I’m like you alex, i love the dark space in the pano, it breaks it up nicely i think, and also adds the dark “feel” to it.
    i’d try and say somthing creative here but i’m no wordsmith, but i feel the darkness helps to highlight the menacing sky and machinery, destruction of the forest, etc….
    but it is also a contrast to the brightness that is in the sky.
    maybe that brightness shows that the menacing sky will bring with it rain, and new life in the future…(getting very deep now aren’t I…)

    anywho, simply as a photo, i like it…..

    On the b&w shots, have you tried a vignette? This may contain the image a little better. The dark looks fine to me as you have an ample amount of contrast.

    Alex I have to say excellent imagination to turn something so ugly into something so amazing!

    Hi Alex.
    Some really impressive photos, especially the 1st photo. I can think of nothing better than taking an ordinary scene and turning it into a work of art :o)
