There's something about the crane on it's redundant tracks with the horse like shadow of another crane in front that really appeals to me @Peter B
Thanks Chris. I toyed with the contrast to make it more prominent, but decided this was a good compromise.

@Kevin Allan, your Rannoch moor photo is sodding brilliant. Really like that composition and the exposure is spot on. Love it.
Gee thanks @Woodsy. It's very pleasing to get positive feedback from someone who's won a POTY.

With regard to the exposure, I spot metered off a grey card. I think I used a polariser on this one and metered at ISO20 to allow for 2 and 1/3rds stop extra for the filter. I took another version with a yellow filter (and no pola) which lightened the grasses nicely but, as you would expect, the reflection of the tree is less prominent.

The sky has been darkened with a virtual ND grad in Lightroom but this is nothing that can't be done in the darkroom when I get round to doing a wet print.

I didn't develop the film for long enough and the neg is very flat - it'll probably need Grade 4 at least in the darkroom.

50mm Summicron.
Pin sharp isn't it.

Perhaps you already know but the glass quite 'soft' and thus susceptible to fine scratches when cleaning the front element.

I haven't had cause for concern as yet but worth bearing in mind;)

Thanks, I'll be wary! It came with a matching Leitz UVa filter for protection.

I took out my 2002 Hasselblad 501CM again loaded in an A16 back with 09/2006 dated Konica VX 400 pro . I had bought loads of it cheaply years ago when it was 'Fresh' ! i processed in CPAC C41 developer, Fuji-Hunt Bleach and 'sale price' Champion Fixer. Scan was with a 'Freecycle' Epson 2480 flatbed + Vuescan Pro + FastStone Image Viewer.
Three Photos taken in Weald Country Park near Bentwood, Essex I used the 180mm f4 CFi Sonnar for the more distant ones, 80mm f2.8 CFE Planar for overhanging leaves on dried-up pond VX400 07.jpg VX400 08.jpg VX400 09.jpg

Some awesome images in this thread!

Here's a couple of my recent portraits - mono are HP5+ and colour are Reala all captured on either my RB67 or RZ67. Mono are home developed and colour are lab developed.





All good but that first one is spot on, I could look at that image all day long

@Kevin Allan - meant to say - love your shed pics! So often people would use black and white for that type of subject but the colour really suits them.

So is there a secret to getting in focus portraits? I have failed abysmally to getting anything right and those images are just fab.

Thanks :) I tend to rack focus back & forth, gradually slowing down until I think I'm getting pretty close to focus and then I just guess as good as I can :) my magnifier on the RB waist level finder is broken and I like to shoot at wide apertures so I've gotten pretty good at winging it haha.

what is that Asha?
It's me under a darcloth! :D

It's a pot figure that stands nearly 6 inches tall made out of a very coarse clay.

Only one of its kind as I specifically ordered it from an English potter who visits Sospel sometimes twice a year and exhibits his produce.

He makes a whole mixture of stuff out of different clays and actually enjoys producing something different to the "norm" so he was delighted to make this " LF Tog " for me:)

Great use of foreground here Andy, with the swirl of white water and the green weed really adding to the photo.

Whilst this is fantastic Andy I actually prefer your other shot on Flickr - Storm Front 2 (Hope you don't hate me for saying this!)

It looks like an ND filter has added a slight purple tint to areas of the water in this one; might be completely wrong?

Thanks Fraser. I didn't use any filters and I can't see any purple, however I am colour blind so who knows :D I suspect that any tint on the water is a reflection from the clouds, they were beginning to look like a florid bruise at this point.

Both are brilliant Andy! It's more likely to be my dodgy eyes TBH and is reflections. I love them both - well done!

And another... what is he doing?????

A bit more panoramic this time and on the Wista from a different angle, this was about 3 minutes before the heavens opened, I just managed to get all the kit back in the bag before it got soaked.

I think I prefer this one but it needs a bit more work before I get it printed.

Funnily enough, I've literally just seen that in the Flickr Group Andy. Another excellent result from your Chroma :) I'm going to put a mail together for the Chroma mailing list, along with Instagram/Facebook/Twitter with your shots later on today if that's ok?
Yep, no problem mate. Same rates as usual I suspect :D
