Sorry! I think this is a good example of when tripods are out of the question. It was shot at 1/60 and f/11.



I did "overcook" that one a bit, with separate curves for the sky and the rest. Should have done more global adjustments instead.
Yes, it would probably benefit from a slight perspective correction! I don't know why, but even with this rangefinder I try not to crop the images at all. Not that it matters, but it gives me a feelng of "trueness".

----------

Two more from the same roll now:









The first one is a good example of why rangefinders can be tricky. I framed the shot so that the upper part of the window would just touch the frameline, and I thought that the 88% view would give some space above it. But because of parallax and the relatively short distance, the composition became a bit too tight.

Edit: And by the way! Look at this 100% crop @ 2400 DPI from the second shot. It's not sharpened at all, which shows what the Epson V700 can do, and also how very nice Tmax 400 is:
Don't tell me that when I have ordered the V600! Nice shots by the way as normal...

goddo31, nice waterfall photo. I have 6 stop ND filters so I don't have to use ultra slow film. And the DSLRs I've had don't go down to ISO 50 or 25, making the filters a must have with those cameras.

tcom, the antique car photos are awesome!!
Thanks, LightMeter.
I have only just acquired some filters actually; the next roll I shot was Fuji Acros with an ND8 filter. Yet to scan that.
Interestingly I didn't see much difference in water blur from 2-4 seconds compared to over a minute shutter time. I guess the water was moving fast enough.

Thanks Luc. I never quite know how to compose this waterfall. Thought I would try out the 200mm in this instance, which was possibly a bit too long.
I enjoy your "tourist" shots. It's all new to me, but way better than real tourist shots Very nice.

Martin - great stuff, I particularly like what you have done with Barnängsgränd.
Just curious, do you ever go over to Göteborg?

OK, might need to make this the last waterfall photo
But here's a slightly different take.

Pentax 67, 200/4, Fuji Acros EI80 with ND8 filter

To be honest goddohr31 I love looking at waterfall photos. This one I like because it gives me a feeling of peace and rest. I can almost smell and hear the water, and to me that makes the photo when the viewer is pulled in. So I say fine job and look forward to more.

After Makten totally thrashed my other car just to get a rustic picture, I took the insurance money and thinking about this 1937 American Cord 812 Sedan.

Thanks Ron OK I'll post another one soon... I shot a roll of Porta 160 at the same outing, so perhaps a colour shot.

Looks like a good way to spend some insurance money
Now that's black and white!

You know, I may have written down the wrong car for that frame. The reflection in the hubcap looks like the BMW. Now I don't know what it is, oops. I need your car skills to identify what this one is from a limited view, again.

Edit How about a 1937 American Cord 812 Sedan?

You're going to have to post a JPG or PNG but not a Photoshop file. Sky replacement?

Yes, I replaced the sky from my "Sky archive/library" to improve the image that had a plain cloudless overexposed sky.

If you want to post the image here, simply click on the picture in your Flickr stream. Above it two buttons should appear. One is called "Action" and the other "Share".
  • Click on the Share button. A window will pop up with options.
  • Click on the Grab the HTML/BBCode menu item.
  • Check the BBCode radio button option
  • Select the image size you want from the available options in the drop down list.
  • Highlight the formatted BBCode that should appear and copy it.
  • Come here and paste it into a comment box.
Your image will show up here without having to follow a link. Yes, the good ol' days of being in the right place at the right time to capture unique moments in nature - the hallmark and challenge of the landscape photographer - are gone. Today it's just fabricated photos.

Tuco if you keep in that direction you will soon request three separate MF forum one for B&W film , one for color film and one for digital - and if you don't watch yourself you will start sounding like me
