    Stef, the P25 remains a stellar back for sure. I definitely like the new B&W tool in C1!

    Muhammed, Really like the second shot with the rock at Berryessa, nicely composed!

    Nik, amazing shot of the Bald considering MF

    Note that "Split-Toning" is a traditional B&W printing process that toned highlights and shadows differently; some chemicals reacted more heavily on the paper stock while others toned more heavily on the activated silver parts. So by combining the base paper color with various chemical baths during the rinse cycles, you would get enhanced tones across the "monochromatic" image, giving it an added impression of depth.

    Thanks, Jack - I'd pretty much guessed what was going on and am really really really taken with C1 v.6. Spent most of today reprocessing some old files which no longer need PS!

    I was about to buy Nik for B&W - I now wonder if that's necessary.

    with the recent discussion on over-sharpening...do you guys think I oversharpened the pic?

    as usual, more and larger pics at my blog..http://peter-chong.blogspot.com/2010...semite-ca.html

    Hi Peter,

    This looks fine to me. And it's a good example for me to elaborate on re artistic tastes.

    I think there is a line between artistic choice and technical error. Unfortunately it is not a crisp, well-defined line, but rather a fuzzy zone -- and as artists, we get to choose where we mark the distinction.

    So if I were to critique your above image in that light, I would say for my tastes you are near and perhaps just beyond the upper edge of appropriate sharpening. And the downside of that (again just for me) is that it tends to impart a more "direct digital" look to the final image. Certainly not offensive at this level though, just close. One thing that might help is consider a slight blur mask leaving the central 2/3rds (tree trunk) in tact and just dusting off at the outer edges, like with a heavily feathered transition 2 or 3 pixel Gaussian blur.

    Cheers,
    Jack

    Re: Fun with MF images

    One from today : a little walk in the brand new Reunion National Park (wich has became a UNESCO heritage this year).

    This is the tropical primary forest of the island, at 1700m altitude. on this image you can see an endemic tree the Tamarin, wich always show torn and strange shape : when the mist come you feel like in the magic forest of FANGORN (..Lord of the Ring)

    Shot with the ALPA 12SWA SK 24mm apodigitar and the P25+.



    Processed in capture one 6 using the Sepia preset.

    I had lowered the sharpening to the minimum, because of the complexity of the subject ; this is an important point, I find sharpening annoying in images with complex paterns.

    And for those of you who are curious and understand french (unfortunately the website is brand new and there is no english mirror now):

    I don't use mat papers much any more, but one of my traditional favorites was Hanemuhle Photo Rag. I also liked Epson Ultrasmooth Fine Art, it's surface is anything but "rough" and it's warmth was almost an artistic statement in itself though. If I were going to print B&W on mat paper today, I would definitely take a look at the newest Hot Press and Cold Press options from Epson -- I have heard great things about them.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Went out shooting with Paul Slotboom from Optechs Digital in Seattle last week. I'm getting closer to making the jump to MF. Paul and Ted from Optechs have been absolutely stellar to work with, extremely knowledgable and helpful and also really patient with me and my stupid questions. Highly recommended .

    This shot it with the Alpa 12TC, Rodenstock Apo Sironar Digital 35mm/f4.5 (also know as the Alpa Apo Alpar), and P25. A pretty liberal crop and use of the new Keystone correction in C1 6.0. Also, split tone (BlueRed 1), a bit of contrast and sharpness falloff correction.

    Cheers, -Peter

    Yes, just about...I was there only on Friday 26. I had a client shoot in Milan on Sat 27, and left for Germany on 28.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    It was horribly foggy most of the day but I decided late afternoon to see what was doing over towards the bridge. When I got over to Fort Point the light looked really cool so I decided to go up top and shoot from there. In the 2 minutes it took to drive up the hill I was completely fogged in. So, I went down below again. It didn't quite work out. But as I was waiting for the fog to lift I turned around and there was this amazing glow downtown. Finally as the sun had already gone down and the fog just getting thicker I gave up....about 1/2 mile down the road as I looked out the rear view mirror I said "holy s**t"! No time to really set back up but here is my short little outing.

    (Yes the light was really pinkish as the fog was low and above the clouds had gone pink)

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Took a few visits to get this shot for a loosely defined series.. prints like a million bucks with sky just a hair warm. Had to put the Cambo RS away and use my Mamiya AFDII with the 150mm (not D).
    The manager was very friendly, but did not want to stay after having to work a birthday party in the park so she had to lock the gate, hence the 150mm.
    Gulf Shores, AL.
    P40+, trip through C1 and then Lightroom adjustments (gradient, local contrast + on the wood structure).
    Back next weekend...

    Thanks for looking,
    George

    Terry, your foggy images are not only beautiful they help reinforce my thought that the worse the weather the better the images. Very good work!
