I too, feel the second image is more affective. The building in the far corner adds a sense of scale.


Steve

Definitely the second. In 6x6 it would have been even better. It just needs a little bit of space at the top to increase the sense of space that the building gave and the sense of the cheer steepness of the stairs.

Cheers,

Luc

The original image had more space at the top, but it was a fairly distracting parking lot! Here is the original scan, no edits or PP, including the fog on the right from being the end of a self-loaded roll...




Or maybe this crop with a little different tilt?

Hello Steve,

The un-cropped scan gives the best spatial impression for me. So you had it bang on in the viewfinder
Now if you could get all these bloody tourists to move out of the picture...

That said, unless it is anathema for you, I would try to clone out the RV on the crop to restore some "empty space" and it would likely work.
This is all according to my taste of course...

Cheers,

Luc

Thanks for the affirmation on the original framing. I was snapping catch as catch can and trying to stay out of the way of the other tourists. Pity that I was at the last frame, too.

I don't really have the tools (no PS) or the skills to clone the RV out. I do have an old copy of Paint Shop Pro and might give it a try.

A quick and dirty, just to get a sense of it.

Cool! Now could you just do a number on those tourist dudes? The bottom group were actually sort of funny. They were a bunch of late-20-ish guys in motorcycle leathers. By the time they got to the next landing they were completely out of breath.


Steve

(Just kidding about getting rid of the tourists...)

Last year I gave Ektar a try for the first time and I wasn't all that happy with the results, especially when I factored in the cost of it. At the time I decided that I would just stick with my usual Fujicolor 200. At the time I didn't have a scanner and was just getting 4x6 prints done so recently I decided tto dig up the negs from that roll and scan them myself to see if I liked the results better.
Here are a few of the pics I liked. All shot with Pentax ME and K 24/2.8

At this time, I'm a little lost. These are the scans of Ektar or Fuji?

30 mile dogsled race start. Yellowknife, NWT 1989
A 24-50, Ricoh XR1s, Kodachrome 200. According to my field notes it was -34C. Frost conditions were unusually bad. I could barely see through the viewfinder, so I preset focus at 10 feet, aperture f/11 and went for it.

My first attempt at OTF long-exposure metering with the LX. These are between 4sec and around 1min. All on Ilford FP4+ 125 (lovely film).
Very fine work. I particularly like the branches and water shots.

I'm also an FP4 fan. Just put a roll in my bulk loader last night.

Love the shot! Superb use of the light.
