    I have the Mark II with Nikkor 150mm and Fuji 90mm lenses. I think all the shots I've shared so far have been with the 150mm lens

    So i got my first roll of film developed and the digital files back.
    I am hooked! As much as i used most of the film to learn the craft of manual focus etc etc it was nice to come away with a couple of photos that are interesting too.

    So below i present a couple of efforts. First was shot wide open at f1.7 not sure what aperture the 2nd was taken at.

    Taken on Minolta X300 using Fuji Superior 200

    Comments are welcome

    Excellent, it is often the case that when you first shoot film (or go back to it after a while) you forget just how good it can be and these are both very good.

    You don't know man, you weren't there....... Oh, hang on you were there, I forgot you were so erm.. mature? :D

    I've been growing some jalapenos in the garden this year and I've recently picked them to cut up and pickle.

    Wanted to try one of those bright and airy like images that you see in cook books nowadays, but there wasn't room on the table for a tripod so I put the board on the floor :D Wasn't expecting much, but I'm pretty happy with how the image came out actually!

    That's promising Carl.

    If I may offer a small critique, it might be worth thinking about how to get the light more even across the scene.

    Thanks Simon, critiques are always appreciated :)

    The photo was a spur of the moment thing as a quick thought before I chopped the chillies up, so I didn't really put too much thought into it. The light came from a set of sliding patio doors to the top left. I guess a reflector would have been a good shout to even it up a little without having to break out some proper light. I've got some more vegetables in the garden that I need to harvest soon (including some one inch long carrots and a total of two mango sized butternut squashes :LOL:), and I think I'm going to try again as it was quite good fun to do.

    Those have come out really nicely, Stuart, great stuff. Though...

    The, um, out of focus areas (*) are really quite scary (although I was there in the 60s, I, ahem, didn't "inhale", as they say ;) ).

    * EDIT: not sure whether the gentlefolk of F&C actually use the B word!

    My first thought was Padley Gorge but then I thought I was being daft. It it above the little wooden bridge that is near to the gate where the ice cream van usually parks up?

    I have to agree tjat the lens wide open appears to be giving the grass some hippy still swirl.
    Im guessing its a character trait of that particular lens

    Ok I keep coming back to this shot.
    I love the candid nature but also the way the film has rendered it.

    This would have been shot wide open and if i recall correctly i was shooting at 1/30th.

    I reckon if i shot this in digital i wouldnt have gained the same latitude in exposure balance.
    Would love to know your thoughts

    I love that first shot, Brian - didn't notice the damselfly until the second look!

    Another couple from me, and I think I've found a new favourite b/w film - Ilford Pan 100! Taken in the Peak District on the Bronica SQ-A.

    Pentax MX and Tri-X in a steep, dark, windy road in deepest Somerset!

    [​IMG]1709BPMXBW05 by Chris R, on Flickr

    On a monopod (not really enough room for a tripod and nowhere to go if a car came) and probably down to around 1/30.

    (EDIT: replaced the image with one 800 pixels high as I find 1024 pixel images don't work so well in portrait format!)

    The first shot looks great, but has a purple cast on my monitor, is that how it's intended to look?

    It does look fairly warm on the two monitors I've viewed it on, but I wouldn't say it has a strong cast when I view it. The image was taken shortly before sunset on Velvia 50 so it's not going to be at the muted end of the spectrum.
