Hello people,
first time for me to ever post a photograph on these forums and I am not even sure if I will leave it in for a longer time. I hope you enjoy it while it's there.
I just wanted to say that I have been lurking this thread for some time now and I have to say that I think this is the place to find the greatest images on here. The creativity, enthusiasm and technical knowledge that one can find in this special thread here really inspires me.

I thought this picture here, while technically not perfect, could serve as a gesture to say thanks to all of you. It was taken in an abandoned hospital complex. I was just figuring out perspectives on the staircase when my friend passed by and I took a quick shot. Out of the many pictures taken there, this was the only noteworthy one to me, as it seems to tell some kind of story, and thus, I want to present it to you.

Pentax MZ-5, Zenitar 16mm f2.8, Lomo 800, Epson V500
What fun! That is a great image. I love my Zenitar on 35mm film.

Taken with a Zone VI 4x5 and Kodak Ektar 203mm F7.7 lens. Shot on Foma 200 film rated at 120 and developed in Pyrocat MC for 8.5 minutes.
Good work with the Zone VI! It looks like you are getting your money's worth from that camera.

It was candid.
Isaw the scene, quickly guessed exposure, preset focus, then quietly framed and snapped. I didn't really know if it would work out or not. Got lucky

...as is any print made from any film!


Steve
To elaborate a little bit, reincite the war, and add some philosophical perspective, Ansel Adams is widely quoted as saying,

"The negative is the score...The print the performance..."


While we do our best by choice of film and appropriate exposure to capture what the inner eye sees, most of the final image happens in the darkroom or in front of the computer. I always apply basic PP to my film images though I have found them much less accepting of major curve manipulation and sharpening. I also always apply a subtle digital toning to my B&W film images to approximate the selenium toning I routinely used when still doing active darkroom work.

This is a digital image, but I figured it kinda belongs here.
I did a 6400dpi scan of my "Newseum" negative, and then out of curiosity, I had it printed at 20"x 30".
It's interesting, the print looks much better to me than the original scan

Here's a photo that my 6 year old daughter took using her Pentax P30t w 50/2, and expired Superia 200.
Thought some of y'all might enjoy it.

Thanks. I really didn't want to miss this opportunity. I was not really liking the big blue lights behind the ship but they made a nice effect on the water. There is also another shadow on the hull from the railing where I was standing that I just noticed.
