As mentioned in the Talk F&C group, I entered the twitter FP4party challenge in November (and may enter the one planned for January 18). I though I might put up my entries in this thread. All were taken on the last day of Shoot Week, over the space of an hour or so; it was the day of heavy snow, which provided some interesting subject. All shot on FP4+ (of course) with a Pentax MX and a Vivitar 35-70 lens. A few other shots suffered from differential exposure in the left and right halves, so it looks like the dodgy shutter curtain is back. Home developed with Ilfosol 3 in a Rondinax 35 daylight tank and home scanned on a Plustek 7500i with Vuescan Pro.

1) Day 1, started rather tentatively with this rather nothing shot of a creek coming in to the local brook.

Great work, Chris. My pick is number 5, really well composed with the gate in the foreground.
Thanks Carl, yes I think it does work better than no 7. If the zoom went a bit wider I might have got a version of 7 from the point where you could see the gate more clearly. Still looking for a 28-70 or even a 24-70 quality manual K-mount zoom! While common these days, it appears such a zoom was a bit beyond 1970s lens technology!

Ok, changed my mind, now my favourite is number 8 :)
Thanks, I like that one too! Interesting, they both got about the same number of likes on twitter, while Snow Tree got quite a few more. Number 3 was the titter likes winner by a fair margin.

Thanks Peter. One day when I have my Chroma in Edinburgh, I might try that with some front rise to reduce the convergence effect.

ETA there's not much space, just across a not-wide street.

The kitchen door shot is my favourite of these Chris, not that easy to get details in the shadows and the landscape beyond.
