Friday Photo: 13 September

September 13th, 2013 at 8:38 am by Chthoniid

And finally the weather turns pleasant.

This pic however, is taken in very poor weather and is of 3 sheltering godwits.  And rather than going for the classic ‘’ photo, the style here is high-key.

And now, it feels like a morning that can only be improved with coffee…enjoy

    Pfft. Black and white and over exposed with no background. Looks like he’s right – you really do use a Box Brownie.

    Cunliffe, Robertson, Jones. Because they’re only one one leg (the Left one), head under wing rather than head in sand.

    These photos and their accompanying text always reek of pretension.

    As usual, Redstain goes out of his/her/its way to look at the photo, click the Comments link, just to let us know he has something personal against the photographer. I guess when you’re a shrieking harpie it’s important to be regular. Probably looks forward to it all week.

    Your turn. You know you won’t be able to help yourself.

    You’d think Kevin could leave his obsession alone for the Friday photo thread wouldn’t you.

    The sickness is becoming more intense with each passing day. Seriously Vaseline boy, you need to seek out some help.

    Sidey’s not much better. 90% of his comments here have been personal attacks on Redbaiter, and he’s not the slightest bothered by using any thread to do it, even if he’s a light year off topic.

    Another nutcase obsessive who needs psychiatric care.

    Its rather boorish (albeit predictable) that the same handful of morons see fit each week to try and denigrate the efforts of others.

    @Chthoniid: Thanks for sharing your portfolio. Always appreciated.

    @The morons: I don’t know what your problem is, but I suspect it’s hard to pronounce!

    I merely submit my view of the work. Others are free to do the same. There once was a time when it was not considered sacrilegious to have a view that was different to conventional wisdom, but that is the progressive political state we endure today, and the spite from loons like Vaseline Boy and Sidey is symptomatic of that widely engendered intolerance.

    Statist progressives who foam and spit and cannot bear any dissenting voice. All they needed to do was disagree, or even more simply, just express their own views, but their ingrained arrogance and intolerance and madness means they must go further than that, and attempt to punish anyone who has a differing view.

    Riiiight, got it thanks Redparody. You’re allowed a dissenting voice against pretty much everything, but no-one is allowed a dissenting voice against your constant attacks on pretty much everyone else. Good to know.

    Ever stop to think that those who perhaps are not enamoured of chthoniid’s work, other your good self of course, merely skip past the post without the need to stop and hurl abuse at it? Do you always point out your views of things you don’t approve of to everyone in the real world? And get smacked around a fair bit? No friends, family stopped visiting? Gutless coward.

    Ever think that it was a vast breach of protocol to spoil yet another thread with another obsessive rant as part of your insane campaign against Redbaiter? You not only need to see a shrink, you badly need some lessons in blog manners.

    @Elaycee

    @Chthoniid: Thanks for sharing your portfolio. Always appreciated.

    Thank you- your positive response is always appreciated.

    I was wondering how long someone would make a political parallel to the Labour leadership contest- so thanks @Jack5 for getting in there so promptly :)

    I have reservations about ‘high key’ when used in projected images and monitor viewing as this results in the eyes being bombaded with peak white and as presented here there is no framing to surround the image. The image is improved with sharpening though the right hand bird is hopelessly soft which is strange as they seem to be in a line across the camera’s viewpoint. The lack of adequate base for them to be standing on suggests editing trickery rather than genuine high key. I would suggest copying left bird and adding a 90% copy to replace the right bird if you like the image enough once you are fortified with coffee :)

    Good to see that you don’t aknowledge the wankers on your post Mr Chthoniid.
    Sad people who need your photo to grandstand themselves. Actually it is jelousy, I have never seen a photo taken and posted from the said wankers.
    Godwits – nice pic. They should be back at Kaiaua by now?
