AbrasiveReducer: What happened to the 100+ year print life?

Stanchung,
Not sure if you're serious, but in dark storage, do you think a few degrees of warming would much difference?
The book for my 3880 which was just delivered [ :( ] has 'lightfastness' in the index - but on that page (136), there is no mention of lightfastness of inks or papers. Instead there is reminder to always use genuine Epson papers, and a note about the shelf life of the ink cartridges.

AbrasiveReducer: What happened to the 100+ year print life?

I was wondering that too!
From my original Epson 7600 instruction book from 2004 - page 185: "Ultrachrome lightfastness - Color: up to 100 years / Black and White: over 100 years."
(the fine print specifies 'under glass' and 'on specific Epson media')
Then there's this site, which used to be recommended by Epson - Wilhelm Imaging Research . . .

http://www.wilhelm-research.com/WIR%20Hahnemuhle_2008_10_20%20/Hahnemuhle%20Inkjet%20Papers.html

It states 200+ years for dark storage in albums.

On Fireworks 02 in the Light painting challenge (1 comment in total)

I thought your photo was interesting and different. One of the better ones in the challenge. There's a nice balance between the warm and cool colours, and I love the 'nervousness' of it. I want to try that technique next time I am close to a fireworks display.

On Painting with light in the Light painting challenge (1 comment in total)

I like your photo. It was one of my favorites when I voted. My first thought when I saw it was that you could lose the blue tent altogether and perhaps the image would be even better without it. That's just my 2 cents worth. It's an excellent photo just as it is!

On Painting with Led Lights in the Light painting challenge (2 comments in total)

This was one of my favorites when I voted. I think it shows good imagination, and I'm sure it took some time to get this many variations. I like that the collage has that vivid blue theme throughout. Good work!

The cat's name is 'Meow-Meow'. And, yes he is a big boy.

Saleen1999,
Thank you for looking, and for commenting. Cat's hate leashes, but we were on a cross-country trip and were afraid to lose him. He didn't think much of the Atlantic Ocean.

Congratulations on your first place finish. This was one of my favorites when I voted. Your alien looks perplexed, but friendly. The photo gets better as you look at it. Good work!

On Mystery Macro in the Macro - Mystery Photo challenge (3 comments in total)

It's a snowflake photographed very close with a 10x microscope objective of approximately 20mm. No PP except for the focus stacking, levels, sharpening.

On Winter Wall in the My Best Photo of the Week challenge (2 comments in total)

I like your photo - voted 4 stars for it. I think it's a very good image, even if the voters didn't like it for some reason. Perhaps it's too subtle for this venue.

In reply to:

Wildbegonia: Beautiful. Congratulations on this well crafted photo. You should write an article on microphotography and submit it to DP....just an idea.

Wildbegonia,
Thank you! I don't feel I'm skilled enough to write articles. There are many snowflake shots on the www much better than any of mine. I got lucky with this one.

In reply to:

Cliff Whittaker: Thanks for sharing your snowflake and how you did it. Just wondering if you had to it all outside in order to keep the snowflake from melting before you finished?

Cliff - yes, I had to shoot outside, and take care to keep everything cold before starting. I think it was about -10 C. when I did this one.

On Snowflake in the Macro - Make it Shine challenge (10 comments in total)

Thank you, Uloo. The camera was attached to an old Meopta microscope and the lowest power lens was used. It's marked with '3X'. I don't know the focal length or aperture, but have estimated it at 20mm and f/22.

Congratulations on your first place finish. Having taken a few frost pictures myself, I know how difficult it is to get something this good. I love the swirls. Good work!

On The Engine Driver in the Head & Shoulder or 3/4 Portrait challenge (5 comments in total)

cjf2,
A fine portrait, in my opinion. The lighting is strong and well suited to the subject. The expression strikes me as being real - the man looks weary/exhausted - and perhaps a bit sad.
I like the details of the greasy sleeve, the tattered cuff, and the graceful hand holding the rag.
Congratulation on a well-deserved first place finish. There were a lot of good portraits in the challenge.
Steve
