Very nice photograph! The composition is great, and color. Hard to get better IQ than that.

Superb image quality!
If I owned a 31Ltd (and could us it), it would likely never leave my ZX-5n

Nice. I particularly like the light trail out the top of the "honey" jar.

You've all convinced me to pick up film again. Starting with the fully automatic Canon Prima BF. These scans are straight from the Noritsu scanner (resize, border). Fuji Superia 200:

This camera has literally been the world over with me and using it was like slipping back in time (and remembering that the 35mm FL still suits me best). I'd also forgotten how forgiving highlights are...

Yesterday I sprung for a meter battery for my wife's Minolta SRT-201 and took the MD 100mm F3.5, the MC 50mm F1.7, and a Seagull 24mm F2.8 for a walk down to our river. I can't wait for the roll to come back....

The surface of a newly lacquered brand new bar makes a helluva tripod.

A few years ago when I got it it didn't but my original copy was slightly decentered tho it took me over a year to realize it. Long ordeal to get it corrected and have been rediscovering it on film bodies. It wouldn't leave normally except that it's larger than I usually like to tote around with me daily, so the 43 is there most of the time.

Very nice, glad we could twist your arm a little. The first one, Better Days, reminds me of a character from Disney's Cars. If he comes tractor tippin', Frank will be ready:

Thanks, Kevin.
It's quite a lot of fun putting these together.

Are they cropped/levelled at all? Or do you nail them "in camera" as it were?

Great work regardless - you're one of my favourite photographers on here.

Great set of photos. I really like these. They capture the expanse so well. Great color.

Ha! Better watch out. This was old mine equipment, and the mine was quite interesting too, you get to pick over amethyst tailings for $4 a kilogram.
Many thanks.

I used a tripod and a Rollei pano head to shoot these. The pano head has a level, and click stops every 36 degrees which is designed to work with a Rollei TLR.
After scanning, I crop slightly (5100 pixels wide down to 4900 pixels), and then fit them together onto a blank document in PSE.

A nice shot and the quality is really great! I haven't tried Velvia 100, thinking that it is an inferior variant of Velvia 50. Maybe I should try nevertheless.

Do you remember the f-stop when you photographed this image? The jar is very sharp. Little lights show it wasn't f1.8 but the bokeh on the right side is still very-very smooth.
