Nice tonality, Makten! I see the scratches. Are you using a fixer with hardener?

This is from my second roll with this cheap film, and I must say I like it a lot. The only major issue is that it is very, very prone to get scratched.

Next up is Efke 25!

Nice results for sure.
Efke 25 I find very high contrast, so you might want to consider this when developing (for compensating - I like Pyrocat 1+1+100)

Cheers,

Luc

I use Tmax fixer, but I have no idea of how it works. I haven't had any problems with other films though.

I think I'll wait with the Efke 25 until I've got a sturdy tripod. I didn't think of that yesterday. The only developer I got is Fomadon R09 (Rodinal), so that's what I'll use.

Enjoying seeing your shots, Makten.
As already mentioned, the tonality and grain is really nice.

Nice work! I particularly like the composition of the first one.
And since you commented on one of my shots on Flickr, thought I may as well post it here too.

Pentax 67, Velvia 50, 6x7 55/4 @ f/16



Damn, just noticed some more dirt spots
This was my first time trying Velvia, and I am still very new to slide in general. I am happy with the look of the film, it is less over the top than I had anticipated too. At least for this subject.
This was with the waist level finder. I think I am getting used to it a bit, however I spend quite a bit of time trying to make sure I am composing straight and level. I think this one is just a tiny bit off :P

cheers,
Jason

Dirt spots? I though there were Irukandji jellyfish

Seriously why are you posting warm transparent waters to taunt the poor guys under two days of cold rain

Cheers,

Thankfully, the really venomous jelly fish are not found down here, so it is safe to swim (except for sharks and quite a few other things!).

Sorry, it is a bit unfair! But I'm sure that soon you will all be posting nice pictures of Spring, and I'll be sitting in an office watching the raid and clouds

I was hoping to get out this weekend to do some shooting but instead I've been scrounging for material to build an ark in the likelihood of flooding. It won't stop raining here either.

I was thinking the same thing yesterday. I got caught in a severe squall on the freeway yesterday afternoon just east of Portland and thought I was going to die. 50 mph wind and zero visibility due to heavy rain and 2-3" of water on the pavement. Fortunately there were no collisions.

The cold and rainy weather has definitely delayed Spring. Last year by this time my flowering plum was already done and the ornamental cherry trees were just starting. This year, nothing yet but daffodils and the occasional camellia!

All that rain sounds pretty extreme, hope it clears up to some nicer weather for you guys soon.

In case you are curious, it really doesn't rain all that much here (in Perth, WA Australia) at all.
It might be nice as you get a lot of sunny days through the year, but the other side is that shortage of water and bush fires are basically our number 1 concern. Most years that I can remember, we have had had water usage restrictions. Particularly restrictions on how often you can water your garden (a max of 1 day a week sometimes).

Anyway, I guess a lot of rain during some parts of the year doesn't necessarily mean a large water supply through the remainder either.

And just to get even more weird, this time last year we had a major hail storm. It's still common to see cars with the golf ball treatment! (saw one just today at lunch).

Sorry if this is too far off topic. Glad to hear there were no crashes, Steve.

Might aswell post another photo while I'm here.

So the weather is going extreme...
2010 was a cold year, I had to heat in June !!! And we had 2 months of snow, which we didn't have since 30 years...

Anyway, nice bokeh and framing Jason !

Pretty nice framing Jason.
Texture on the Zodiac would come out great in B&W too.

Pentax 6x7 75mm Shift

One more from the newly acquired Pentax 75/4.5 Shift.



If anybody knows all the tips and tricks of this lens, just let me know.

Cheers,

Luc
