Here is one I took in Death Valley. This has raised some eye brows and awed some people. Some have said it had great composition and others have said it begs one. Same thing with color and light. I posted this in National Geographic photo section also and got some enthusiastic reception. I used Kodak Ektar 100 with my old Pentax LX.
I cast my vote for great composition. The light & shadow contribute significantly to the composition and so do the colors to a lesser extent. The colors are lovely also, which is one of Ektar's strong points in my opinion.

Wow, Love this! Composition is wonderful and the color is amazing. Great walkway, vista and building porch, too. That looks like a great place. The textural rendering of that lens is quite impressive. Fantastic.

Thank you David. That is my parents place, which I helped build and had a hand in the design.
Here are some more photos and some info on the place.

Very nice, I had looked at this before, and knew it was someone in the family. Great transformation of that original structure. Looks like a great place to live. Love the wood ceiling inside and then the porch ceiling/roof detail. Good to see you at work there, too. The photograph here tells a lot about the house, too, as to being there.

It's very impressive and beautiful. Seems to be a wonderful place to live.
The way the ceiling is holded by those "beam" (according to google it's the right word for those big piece of woods that hold the ceiling horizontaly and verticaly) make theplace very warm and lively. the light entering the house and shaping the area. Truely a great work of architecture and indoor design.
I really like the place.


This is going to be my next acquisition in 11x17" size (30x45 cm), directly from the neg i've shot : Fuji Superia 200, DA*55 probably at f2.5/2.8/3.5, and a relatively slow shutter of 1/125. This print is going to be really nice. A Great joy !
And for what's worth, it will be costing only 8 the price of a roll of high speed film like Ilford Delta 3200 or Fuji Superia 1600, which is really not that much in fact.

Life on the Edge

Just a photo I took this morning with my 4x5 large format camera. This one was taken about 10 minutes from home, in "The Narrows" area of the Big Thompson Canyon.

The rock walls are full of crystalline structures, so they really shine when the light hits them right.

I'm starting to get the hang of the large format camera. It is VERY different than shooting with a digital camera and even much different than other film cameras. I used front tilt and rise on this shot since I had to shoot upwards and needed to change the perspective to get the rock walls upright again instead of looking like they were "falling away". This image would be impossible to get to look this way without using a camera that has movements. The perspective would just be too off.

Anyway. this was taken with a Zone VI 4x5 large format camera on Fomapan 200 film. Shot using a Nikkor SW 180mm F5.6 lens through a red 25A filter. Processed in HC-110 (dilution H) for 9 minutes.
