Trully I feel like I am in a shooting funk. It seems to me that everything I have shot of late is junk. Am I the only one who feels this way. Any one else feel like they lost their mojo?

Anyway, from my last roll...I also missed the focus. I always use zone focusing and I miss set the lens..''sigh''

Here are a few from the Saint Charles Oktoberfest.

ES II, SMC Tak 55mm F1.8, Kodak BW400CN







Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic SP 1000, Fujicolor 200, Super Tak 35mm F3.5







The "line"



One of these young ladies asked me if I worked for Pentax, I had two Spotmatics hanging from my neck, and my Pentax cap on, and my buddy was lugging my K10D..



This tent was H U G E, maybe 75 yards..

I finally finished my roll of Reala on the weekend (it took me a month) and promptly got it developed. Only my second roll of film through my MZ-M.

All pics of my daughter with Pentax M 50mm f1.4, although a did a few with a Ricoh 50mm f1.7 but forgot which ones !! Quick scan from the prints (coz I'm lazy).

keeper ratio isn't as high as when I'm using manual cameras

Thanks, Nesster. I think I've been over-agitating since I started my own developing, so I tried a new agitation schedule this time. I like the results.

Its been awhile since I posted something here, but I finally got out and did some shooting last week. Here are a few from the Chamonix 4x5 view camera taken at Cape Disappointment State Park on the north side of the mouth of the Columbia River.


Cape Disappointment

Chamonix 045N-2, Caltar II-N 150/5.6, Wratten #12 (minus blue) filter


Railing

Chamonix 045N-2, Caltar II-N 150/5.6


Both photos were on Arista.EDU 100 Ultra @ ISO 100 developed in HC-110 (dilution G, 1:119) 15 minutes semi-stand at 21 C. This was my first experiment with long development with minimal agitation in highly-dilute developer and I am pretty jazzed with the results. There is plenty of detail in the shadows and the highlights still have head room. Grain is also well-controlled. Normally, HC-110 is not recommended with Arista.EDU Ultra 100 at the standard dilution B (1:31) due to unmanageably short development times. Dilution H (1:63) allows for longer times while dilution G (1:119) provides compensating affect if done with minimal agitation (15 seconds every three minutes).


Steve


BTW...There is another dividend. Dilution G requires 1/4 the developer concentrate that would normally be used for the solution volume needed with my daylight tank. Major savings!

I have been waiting for what seemed weeks with fingers crossed and just found that this shot was accepted in the PPG. For some reason, I didn't think this would make it in which kinda made the waiting seem longer. This is my first 35mm shot accepted to the gallery.

Pentax K2, K 24/2.8, Fuji Provia 400.

Congrats. It's a fine addition to the PPG. I have that 24mm lens too and it sure is handy.

Thanks Tuco. I love the 24mm. It's one of my most used lenses on 35mm.

Hmm. I'm still getting used to my 24's but getting a lot better with them now, after a couple of rolls. They are nice, and I'm a 28mm sort of fella normally.

+1 on the praise, btw Colton
