    We just came back from Tasi, a much needed break in a wonderful place. I hope I did it some justice:

    Seriously, you can just f**k off with those photos. They're damn near freakin perfect. Stop rubbing it into everybody's noses :tongue: ;)

    Seriously though - Some of the most stunning photos I've seen on here ever.

    jesus dude, what did you do to 5,6,7 - the PP has murdered them .....


    the others are quite beautiful, but I wanted to reach through the monitor and stab you at 5.6.7.

    LOL thanks mate, I'll take that as a compliment :D

    Yeah I thought I'd use my tripod and filters for once... Thanks :)

    Hey, at least I kept it consistent :D

    I take it you prefer the green version?

    #1 does it for me. i agree wtih dropbear that the PP is overdone.

    looks like you had better weather for cradle mountain/dove lake though

    Great stuff Chilloutbuddy. I am heading to Tassy on Monday for three weeks and i am absoulutely stoked! Any suggestions on places to check out or tips on what to take? Got my hiking boots and all weather gear packed. :D

    What where the model numbers of the coking grads you took? I have a few already just want to compare notes.

    I am going to Cradle Mountain, Strahan, Hobart, taking a flight from Hobart into Bathurst Habour in the southwest and then up to freycinet.

    Man after seeing these i cant wait to get down there!

    Here is a link to the par avion tour i am taking: http://video.msn.com/video.aspx?mkt=en-AU&brand=ninemsn&vid=2211d0d9-990b-49d0-9b56-d5da99ddc64a

    Thank you! :)

    Bazz, I can never keep the horizon straight with that lady :)

    Fair enough about the processing, you're probably right. I only spent 1 hour last night and processed 30 photos. I'll make a couple of prints because I dont trust my monitor and will revise if necessary.

    Rossco I have no idea about the south, we stayed north. Might be worth sending Wisie a pm. Cradle mountain only has a couple of shots really, you cant miss them. Just head for the boathouse at lake Dove. The other one is the lodge at night but I'm sure you can do better than me:

    [​IMG]

    The red rocks are in a beach outside Swansea called spiky beach I think, but you need to be there at 4.30, no kidding :tongue: The sun rises early in Tasi. Swansea should be on your way to Freycinet. Freycinet has amazing granite rocks but the best places are unaccessible by foot, especially that time of the day. Sunsets are not that great as it faces east. If you're going to Wineglass bay dont even bother with tripods unless you're *very* fit. Its almost one hour of steep steps up and this is only halfway there.

    As for gear all my photos were taken with my 5D and zuiko 24mm f2.8 and the basic Manfrotto head & legs. I stacked a couple of Cokin P filters on my holder, 0.8 and 0.4 I think, one of them graduated. On top of that sometimes I borrowed one of my mate's Cokin Z filters and held it in front to gain another 1-2 stops.

    Looking at them again, some of the shots are very Shaun Lowe-like, which is a serious complement (well, as far as I'm concerned).

    You've got some absolute gems there.

    Love number 3, for the cuteness factor :thumbup:
    I thought they were all a bit too processed, but if that's the look you're going for then great; number 14 is nice, is that PP'ed much at all?

    Thanks guys :)

    I looked him up, some of his photos are very unique indeed. Thanks again mate

    I'll let her know, she likes compliments :)

    Yeah they are probably overprocessed which is partly due to my monitor and partly intentional. I like disgustingly saturated landscape shots :)
