    And wetter....its the reflections off the cobbles that make it
    That's actually not bad, can't decide if there's a slight difference in height, or focal length, its nearly bang on, you must have spent a little time researching that or lining it up or something.

    It was certainly wetter when Brandt made his image and I agree it is the wet cobbles and the very high contrast that make the original. I wasn't trying to recreate the original and mine is different, but I think it is a suitable homage, with an echo of Brandt's original. A great location, that hasn't change that took me a while to track down by guess work, google maps and some luck! I was in Halifax for a few hours (it's a long way from home in Norfolk) and this is the best from a grab roll of 16, just before security at the site rolled up! I did have a copy of the original as reference on my phone.

    Security ???

    actually, looking at it, it does look a bit unused.
    its not unusual for places these days to look a bit run down compared to years ago what with councils not fulfilling their duties like they should, but that looks like it doesn't see much traffic at all, pedestrian or otherwise.
    Halifax is pretty much the only city in Yorkshire I've not been to in my life, despite only living 20 miles away.

    I shot another roll of Fomapan 100 with the Mess Ikonta 524/16 at the weekend. I'm really impressed with this little camera - I might even consider getting a CLA to fix the sticky shutter / suspected shutter speed problem. It's a little softer at wide apertures (the first shot here is at 5/5.6 I think), but the lens (the f/4.5 Nettar) is very sharp when stopped down to f/8 or smaller, as in the other two.

    Yes security at the complex, but a quick chat, the disarming effect of a big film camera and the obligatory "can you still get film for that" question and I got a history lesson on the demise of the carpet industry in Yorkshire and the resurrection of the site as an office complex. I can recommend Halifax, the Piece Hall, the Market, amazing Victorian architecture, some still un cleaned and coated with mill soot, it is a very interesting town. Brandt was right about it in the 1930's and it's still true today! It also still has an old school film and paper camera shop too!

    A bit of autumn colour (and possibly a candidate for a jigsaw!). Shot on one of the rolls of 2007 expired Fuji Superia 100 that I bought from @Neilmack recently. I shot it at 64asa and it's come out a treat.

    Nikon F70 & Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AF-D.

    I spent a good part of the day there, wandering about the town snapping and enjoying a range of cake and coffee so I do think it is a place of interest. I had planned to just spend the morning seeking out the locations of several Brandt images and then head on to Hebden Bridge ( I am told the arty capital of the Socialist Republic of West Yorkshire) but ended up spending most of the day in Halifax. So I would say yes, but I guess I am biased as I such a good day. There will be plenty of better versed Northern types on here though that I am sure will add more of a locals view. It's a long way from my home in the lands of the Angles but it was worth the trek for me!

    When you're surrounded by it, Yorkshire I mean, it all gets a bit samey after a while.
    Been to Hebden Bridge, and I honestly can't pull a picture out that doesn't look like any other stone built, river based, hump backed bridgy quaint stone pubbed tiny local churched small town/village......in Yorkshire, tbh.
    The industrialized towns and cities like Fax, Hudds, Leeds, Bfd, are more interesting and appealing these days, although I have discovered the NY moors in recent years and can't seem to keep out of it at the moment.
    Even a run out to Hull....land of the Codheads, grabs me more tightly with its maritime scenery, heritage and unique architecture, than the Otley's, Holmefirths and Toddmordens of Yorkshire do anymore.

    So I'd just loaded a new, to me, charity shop Lomo LC-A (£8) with the last of 50ft of seriously outdated Ilford B&W cinefilm that I'd found in a bulk film loader in the local flea market (£1). What does Cobra pick as a theme for the TP 52 Challenge? COLOUR(FUL). What to do? Shoot colour with black and white of course. It worked! Surprised? I am. Used two wireless triggers on off camera flashes with Red, Green and Blue filters to get three frames.

    Here are a few 'Tests' on some 'Gift' Kodak Gold 200 dated 04/2000 ! The kind Gent who sent it to me wanted to know if i could get anything out of it -- well, I DID BUT it has to be rated at 100ASA and given 4 mins in my C41 batch to get 'strong' negatives -- then they scan with a horrendous GREEN cast and horrendous GRAIN !! I used a couple of cameras form my 'Treasures' in testing ---

    I take it that the filters are on the lenses not the flash? However you did this it's brilliant.

    In this case on the flashes as no way to fit any filters to the LC-A. So done with the lights off at night.

    Needed coffee for this reply ....

    Two alternative explanations :-

    a) Work of James Clerk Maxwell in the 1850s showed humans see colour using red, green and blue sensors. Colour photography using three separate B&W plates exposed through red, blue and green filters which were then reversal processed and the three projected through colour filters onto one screen was done by Sutton in 1860s. This is esentially the same but by colouring the red, blue and green exposures in GIMP and putting them as layers you can get the same effect. Gettiing the three images 'in register' was tricky as the film transport in the camera and the scanner move things round.

    or

    b:- Magic


    This is what things look like before lining up the layers.
