Not too many covered bridges left these days. Where is that at?
There are a lot of covered bridges down his way. I did a day tour on bicycle a few years back where we visited at least 6 within a few hours ride in the countryside southeast of Salem.

Hi, Steve, you were in my back yard. Bridge tours are very popular. There are also a number of covered bridges south of Eugene, near Cottage Grove, OR.

One thing winter is good for is catching up on scanning with shots that didn't I didn't bother with the first time. I don't know if someone at one time put that section of trunk on that tree or naturally landed there when it broke off.

Fantastic work tuco. Very lively images with surreal elements to them. First class B&W.

Schoodic Cliffs, Schoodic Point, Acadia National Park, Maine

Taken under the first quarter Moon on a January evening.

Low tide allowed me to go to the shoreline and look back at the cliffs. You may be able to make out the water line of high tide below the cliffs.

I hope the tide was going out Totally awesome night shot on color as usual. You prefer not to include the polar star in shots like these?

The tides were gentle that night. Very little wind as well, but I did have to be careful of the slippery rocks. One step and my camera and I would be in the drink!

I would have included Polaris but I wanted foreground elements as well. I had very little room to compose. So I spilt the frame as a compromise. This is why I bought the 45mm.

The addition of a WLF would help as the pentaprism only shows about 90% of the composition.

I was reminded of this during my last forray in my "studio" aka the small corner of my basement.

I like to get the lights in as close as possible and thought I got the lights out of the frame as I couldn't see them through the prism finder.

Got a nice little surprise once I got my negatives back. I had to crop and edit light modifiers out of every shot.

Another thing I noticed was the view finder is so much darker with the 165 f4 than with the 105 2.4. It was so dark, I had a hard time nailing focus. I just added a WLF to my wishlist.

Nice. You had willing subjects. I've never had to developed my film at that warm of temperature. The results look good. Some people use Diafine when the water temperature gets warm. It has the same dev time for almost all films within a temperature range of 21-29C if you didn't know that already.
tuco,
Thanks, it is very rare that I get a model at all, let alone three willing ones
I developed two rolls of Tri-X at 27C, which was on the coolest day for weeks. I think my chemical temp would be around 30C if I was to develop tonight. Water out of the tap may be even hotter... This was the most I have improvised with my developing so far - going to 1:9 with the Tmax to slow it down and trying it for 6.5 minutes. Really, I am glad the results came out OK.
Thanks for the note on Diafine, really I had no idea! So please continue to tell me things that I "may know already", as really it's all new for me I think I'll have to get me some of that to get through the summer.

Jason, nice group of friends, I like the looks of this shot. I wish I had ordered some Tri-x too.

Gary
Thanks Gary. Always time to order some more Tri-X. In my limited experience, I quite like the look of the older style emulsions, and like how the visible grain is low with Tri-X in 120. At 400 anyway.

cheers!
Jason

I must say, great photos here in the last page. tuco, nightfly, love your work.
scooter - nice 'different' portrait, but it works for me.
Gary - sounds like there's a lot of potential in those bridges. The idea of a covered bridge is pretty new to me aswell.

Well whilst I'm here I may as well post another image...

Apologies for the annoying copyright mark. I only added it due to posting on a different site that I don't trust particularly much.

cheers,.

This shot I waited until the sun was blocked by cloud cover. I would have liked a much longer exposure to really streak those clouds but it just wasn't going to happen without using a different film more prone to reciprocity failure.

That's about the nicest shot of the type I've seen in a long while, something about the composition just gets me, the composition has something surrealist as in Dali. I made it my wallpaper.

Wow, thanks. That is both a nice compliment and an honor. I'm published!

Here's a snapshot in the train from Bologna to Ravenna, 645 FA 2.8/150mm at F2.8, 1/125s. Reduced from 300Mb to less than one, though.




The second one is from Oxfordshire, before I obtained a copy of Photoshop: still some work to do.
