A few from my visit to the Summerlee Museum in August. https://www.visitlanarkshire.com/th...erlee-the-museum-of-scottish-industrial-life/ Yashicamat 124G, Fomapan 100, ID-11.
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.
Another test shot from the Chroma.

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.

Taken around Meadowbank Stadium in Edinburgh before they tear it all down.
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 have a yellow filter attached to mine pretty much all the time
We will remember them. Silhouettes of a lost generation mourn their fallen comrades as today’s generation go about their lives in the background.

Well look at me posting photos all over the show, Machine gun Andy, that's me.

Orchid close up 2 by Andy, on Flickr
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

I felt like branching out :
Fomapan 100 OOD
210mm, 1/4 sec @ F/22
HC-110 solution B 6mins @ 20C
Epson 4870 scan
Slight crop and light sharpening.
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
I agree. Lovely tones and showcases the 'look' of film for me.
@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.
As it was persisting down the other day I shot an indoor selfie!
Fomapan 100 OOD
150mm, 250 seconds with reciprocicy ( metered at 16 secs) @ F/11
HC-110 solution B 6mins @ 20C
Epson 4870 scan
Heavy crop , slight curve adjustment ( to pull back the highlights a tad), No sharpening.
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.
You've got to love Fomapan!
what is that Asha? beyond the obvious.
It's me under a darcloth!
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
Talking of Large Format......
Storm Front 1 by Andy, on Flickr
Wista Field 45, Nikkor 180mm f5.6 on OOD Fuji NS160.
Perch Rock, New Brighton just before the rains came.
Thats really cool.
Very nice Andy, Smashing composition and a great dramatic sky.
Great use of foreground here Andy, with the swirl of white water and the green weed really adding to the photo.
I agree with the others, this is quite a brilliant shot, Andy!
Great pic, has a 3D quality to it.
I hope you print that one!
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 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!
Same shot as above but on the Chroma and fomapan 100.
Storm Front 5 by Andy, on Flickr
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?
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.
Storm Front 3 pano by Andy, on Flickr
I think I prefer this one but it needs a bit more work before I get it printed.
Yep, no problem mate. Same rates as usual I suspect
