Although on second thought, black & white: not so bad

Thanks, Ed. It's now snowing hard - I was going up to the top of the mountain today in the cable car, but don't think that will happen as it's snowing hard and has been for several hours...

This is a large crane being used in Ottawa to help dig a tunnel for expansion of light rail through the downtown core. I'll miss it when it's gone, it's quite the structure. Ektar, 645, 55mm SMC-A lens. Taken on a gray, ugly day last fall.

Fantastic shots. What's your digitising technique? I always find my transparency's blacks are murky brown/purple - yours are lovely: deep and contrasty.

Hi - thanks for that - I use an Epson perfection scanner - actually quite an old one now - 4990 - and scan the files as TIFFs then use the little bit of headroom that that allows in Lightroom to restore them as best I can to the way they look on a lightbox - mostly the highlight/shadow/white/black sliders, and possibly a tweak on the exposure, contrast, clarity, colour balance and selective sharpening if it helps. These are 6x7s so I don't want to scan enormous files - usually between 300 and 600 dpi, but I do 1200dpi for 35mm trannies - but I think the combination of TIFFs and Lightroom (used because its my normal PP software) is probably the key for me - it obviously helps that the originals in the case above were on Fujichrome Velvia 50, which is very contrasty and punchy anyway. Hope that helps

Nice. Are the windows tinted deep blue, or is that a protective film?
