Javier, that's what I call a Classic shot. Wow...

The only thing that bothers me is the bright seatbelt clamp. I would clone it out, print the photo at 12x18 and hang it on a wall where everyone will see it. I might also retire from photography after that
Thanks Mis.
I will attempt to clone out that buckle. I did notice it and should have tried to clone it out, but my PP skills are not quite there yet. Still, I will give it a go.

I botched the focus on this one (the first pumpkin is blurry), but I still like it. Taken with an MX + FA 20mm f/2.8 (yay for Pentax compatibility). Film used was lowly Kodak CN400BW, developed and scanned at a drugstore, hence the tonal suckage (blame the tools! ).

I like the tones. I think they look pretty good for BW400CN. These look more like Tri-x tones to me. I would not have noticed the miss focus on the first pumpkin either. Looks great!. I like it.

Mike, What mountain is that snow topped one in the back ground? I like the contrast off the water as well. Man you have an eye for these captures.

Another day, another film to check out...

Yesterday was Plus-X 125. Man, this stuff has a wicked fast developing time I had to go with HC110 @ dilution H (half strength) just to get into the 5 minute zone.









I'm not sure if I'm liking HC110 with these lower (sub 400) speed films, especially at higher dilution ratios to extend developing time. They seem a bit grainier than I expected and I'm wondering if a less reactive developer like D-76 or TMAX would treat them better.

Hi Guys.
I posted this in the street thread, but wanted to post it here also.

Here is perhaps one of my most favorite captures. I took this On Monday while packing my gear to go home. I looked out the back window of my truck anD there it was. A perfectly framed image that shows the joy of a couple in love

I took this with my Spotmatic SP2, super tak 35F/3.5 and Ilford XP-2 400 film.
This is an incredible shot Javier. What a great moment captured. Love the look and the grain as well.

I haven't the slightest idea. The shots were taken at a city about 100 miles from my normal stomping grounds. It might be a famous mountain locally; I don't know. To tell the truth I wasn't paying the slightest bit of attention and had no idea there was a snow-capped mountain in the photo until you asked about it. I was just having fun with the cute little C35. I took it with me to the photo exhibit section of our local annual cultural festival and it caused quite a stir among the older members of my photo club who were there. They remember when the Konica C35 series was in production and all remarked that they wanted one at the time. I'm going to rub it in by using only photos from it at our monthly meeting next Friday.

I spent today removing the lens from the 1933 Voigtlander, and then cleaning the sticky shutter blades... which now are nice and snappy. I'm shocked, shocked, that I'm on my last roll of the 25 rolls I bought last year... but gotta go out and shoot it, now that the damn thing works.

Here's one from what may become a favorite Old Film Camera (let's see if this Skopar can beat the one in my 1939 Bessa 66)... Fuji 160S, Uncoated Skopar

I gotta get me a tank. Tomorrow, B&H. Plus-X 125 brings the old days back so strongly... sigh.

Super photos especially the last
