This is the top of a Funicular railway in the hills of Tuscany. A shame it rained, but the views were marvellous all around.

Vineyard Snail

[img]http://farm7.staticflickr.com/6048/6295852656_5ebffea4ba.jpg[/img]

The Vineyard snail like to climb up to the top of vegetation to go into a state of dormancy




Larry of Arabia -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (5/5/2012 11:25:07 AM)

Might be a bit small, this was the only size I had saved unfortunately.

But the weather/light really brings out the colours giving it an oddly autumnal tinge.




hubu_phonk -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (5/5/2012 7:39:51 PM)

Ok, i'll have a try here. I hope i have something in my photo files in case i can't get a great snap [&:] Also those entries so far, brilliant and so far Homers is cracker. I have a real hard on for anything that evokes the expressionists for me [:)] 21 day to go, fuck




sanchia -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (5/5/2012 7:51:21 PM)

I live in Norfolk we have no great heights! [;)]

Sadly I appear to have nothing on file which fits and with my gammy leg it is unlikely I will be able to get out and take a decent picture. I'll think on this one but may have to sit it out.

I should have probably clarified that 'Such Great Heights' doesn't have to be taken to literally. Emotional highs were my initial idea when I thought of the title. It might just be easier to capture something if it is taken literally! [:)]




homersimpson_esq -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (5/5/2012 10:43:05 PM)

Also, a third of the current entries do not actually show literal great heights, but a relative one.




sanchia -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (5/5/2012 11:26:03 PM)

I did get that hence Mr Winky [;)] (which sounds a bit rude).




hubu_phonk -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (6/5/2012 12:10:56 AM)

An oldie that i've always liked, taken with a handy wee pocket camera my wife had. The way the plane's window scrapes looked against the aerial view made me think of a William Turner painting. So, after a few attempts i got the kind of picture i wanted! So here's ........

Fuck me, the more i see Vineyard Snail, the more i fall in love with it. Great composition and It's very painterly in it's style, the colours are so earthy and soft. Fantastic pic [:)]

Thanks Hubu - It's all down to the lens really, an old minolta AF 50mm f1.7 shot wide open.

EDIT- Just to say I've added your entry to the opening post

Thanks [:)] and ooooh, technical stuff. I'm useless at that end when it comes to cameras, but i find digital hard to use, but then again i haven't really tried to experiment. I wouldn't mind a wide angle lens though, so maybe i'll treat my self for my birthday

Q1 Tower dominates the skyline around here, dwarfing the neighbours. This is the view from the observation deck.

As above, so below
 
I like how the idea of a journey in the path is reflected by the jet contrails in the sky.  Taken in B&W, then contrast curve adjusted and duotone applied (all global tweaks).

EDIT - no idea why this doesn't appear to be showing!  I'll try again later.
EDIT2 - Yay! it works!




Chief Wiggum -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (10/5/2012 9:22:41 AM)

added your entry to the top post




sanchia -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (10/5/2012 10:17:09 AM)

I have one which I previously posted on the most beautiful picture thread. I forget, is it ok to submit one of them?




Chief Wiggum -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (10/5/2012 10:33:46 AM)


Yep, The rules state that you can enter any photo, as long as it has not been entered in a previous round

so go right ahead




hubu_phonk -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (10/5/2012 12:46:13 PM)

Fuck me, the entry by Sharkboy is whopping. Love that big time [:)]




sanchia -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (10/5/2012 3:44:49 PM)

I don't stand a chance because this is a bit of a stonking round in terms of the pictures posted. I shall seek it out.




sanchia -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (11/5/2012 7:15:08 PM)

Just for the sake of being in with the in crowd.

hubu_phonk -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (14/5/2012 12:05:14 PM)

That is a gorgeous Photo Pocketrocket. Love photo's looking up through trees [:)]

I'm gonna find putting these in in order of preference a real toughie [&:]




hozay -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (14/5/2012 1:22:30 PM)

Some very good entries this round. I hope there's a few more to come too.

I love photos taken up through the trees, take a lot that way myself, should put some up in the other thread.

You're right it's going to be tough voting this round. The Chief's snails is a particularly nice shot.




Hobbitonlass -> RE: OTPC - Round 3 - Such Great heights - Enter Now (14/5/2012 1:29:17 PM)

I'm trying to decide which one to use. I did have one in mind then looking at the quality pics in this round have changed my mind [:D]

I've just seen your church photo in the other photo thread, I think that would do very well and fits the theme. It's a great photo.
