I just finished putting this together. This was shot 2 days ago as 5 separate 6x4.5 frames. I had the film developed yesterday, and I started scanning at around 10:00 AM today. It took around 5 hours of scanning and editing to get this from 5 film frames to this.

Very nicely done Colton. Did you first assemble this into one image - to align the images, then break it up to five equal sections?

No, I keep them separate throughout the process. After scanning, I flip, rotate and crop each image the same way. Then I put them all on a blank document in PS, and using the Layers transparency, I overlap the edges and figure out where exactly to crop each frame so that they're all the same width and they join properly. Once I have all my final editing done on each separate frame, then I put them on a new blank document and line them up, and finally merge all the layers into one.

Very nicely done, Colton. Given that you shot this with a Pentax 645, this could make a wall-sized mural! This is Crater Lake, I'm assuming? I made it up there in early June, about twenty years ago (geez, how time flies). I took some 35mm slide photos while we were there. I recall climbing to the top of a large snowbank along the parking lot of the visitor's center there to take the pix. It was a memorable experience, but mostly because of the huge, voracious mosquitoes that continously dive-bombed us while we were up there. Eventually they drove us into the visitor's center to seek shelter and relief from the aerial assaults. I told myself that, if I wanted to get photos of a snow-lined Crater Lake ever again, waiting until early June was waiting too long. Still lots of snow on the ground at that late date, however.

Okay, I finally developed my first couple of rolls of Tri-X shot with my new-to-me Pentax 67. Nothing too sensational to report. All of the following images were taken as I just strolled around my house's yard, looking for possible subjects. I found a few possibilities, and thought I'd share.

I scanned the negatives on my Epson 4990 scanner, with ICE and dust removal turned off, set to 2400 ppi. I performed a modest amount of processing to the images. One of the things I've noticed is that, if an image is already critically sharp, performing a sharpening routine to it, such is unsharp masking doesn't add much to the image besides noise. So not much sharpening was done to any of the images. Mostly just contrast and exposure adjustments. One of the things that I'm really coming to appreciate about ,the 6x7 negative size is that, even after cropping, there's still lots of resolution left over, even at 2400 ppi scanned output.

A birdbath in our front yard, first full frame, and then cropped -- with tons of resolution left over. 135mm f/4 macro lens.




Our front door, showing the cut glass windows. 135mm f/4 macro lens.


And the crop of same:


A section of the back fence that needs to be repaired -- chosen for its textures. 45mm lens.


A shot looking from our house toward our street. 45mm lens.


And lastly, a shot of the front of our house, 45mm lens.

Yes, this would print quite large if I wanted
Crater Lake is an amazing place. I live about 2 hours drive from the park, so I try to get there once or twice a year. I've probably been there 15 times. I've never had problems with mosquitoes though

+1 especially with snow on the ground. My wife and I went a couple years ago in June and stayed a week in the lodge. Loved it and itís one of the most beautiful places in North America.

Amazing. I love the result, and the process sounds pretty amazing. I'd love to visit in person! And yes, this could be a wall. I'm thinking back lit.

Beautiful panorama indeed , however I personally dislike the division into 5 separate frames, and would rather leave it as a single impressive image. Great result nonetheless !
