  • The B&W conversion looks almost like a B&W negative to my eye. The conversion also seems to have exposed more noise than the original when viewing at full size (on my laptop screen, at least). I ...
  • Some very interesting comments, Zin. The title was just a trite choice, made up on the spur of the moment for the purpose of posting the pic here. I haven't really titled it as such in my own ...
  • I'm hunting for the USB port on my OM-2 right now. :-D
  • Now, if you were shooting Windows, that would be another story.
  • This is kind of what I had in mind.
  • Replied in Walking the dog
    I think there's a good picture in here somewhere but I'm having problems getting it out. I think If i were to crop the top part out completely, it may get more interesting. Any ideas?
  • My old school (many, many moons ago), Glasgow University. The softness comes from dialing down the Clarity, a technique that's usually used with portraits but I like the effect on architecture and ...
  • Replied in C&C: Inbound
    I know what you mean but I like that cinemascope aspect I get from that crop. I'll play around with it a bit and see if I change my mind.
  • That is a seriously good photograph.
  • Created discussions C&C: Cape Spear Lighthouse
    Cape Spear, on the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland is the most easterly point in North America. It's quite possibly the windiest, too. I felt like I was being blown back to Ontario.
  • In the UK, ARPS stands for Associate of the Royal Photographic Society. In my camera club, back in the day, we used to describe some shots as ARPS photos because they had A Red Patch Somewhere. Thi ...
  • Window light like that is just wonderful to work with. The narrow depth of field makes the boy at the from just out of focus but that kind of thing can't be helped, especially when you are trying ...
  • Replied in gods strolling
    Well, the best camera is always the one you have with you at the time. Otherwise you wouldn't even have this image. Would love to visit India.
  • Created discussions C&C: Deadman's Pond
    It gets its name from the cliff behind it. Gibbet Hill is where public executions were held in St. John's Newfoundland, back in the day. It is also extremely deep, despite its small surface area. ...
  • Replied in C&C: Inbound
    Really? I hadn't considered that before but I kind of see what you mean. Not sure that I really agree with you though. The emptiness adds to it, to my eye, because the plane is flying into that ...
  • I'd say that #2 is amazing. It'll only cost you $25.:-D Can you say more about your scanning set up?
  • So, for comparison, here's the original. As you can see, it was exposed for the sky. I did try a number of different exposures but those just blew out the sky completely.
  • n I have no problem with that, Steve. I've done it myself, once or twice.
  • Created discussions C&C: Black Tower
    I posted this over in the Olympus forum but I would appreciate some comments here. This was a very disappointing shot OOC. The sky was washed out and the foreground too dark and all-in-all kind of ...
  • That's very nice. You might try playing about with the crop to see if you can lose that chain in the background, which is slightly distracting. (Why is it that we never see these things when ...
