As promised here some more HCam-B1 stuff - nice and old fashioned sepia architecture with 17mm and P45+, this time a bit cut and finished in CS5.
Greetings from Munich

Very nice. even so the first one got me confused.
this was just for fun. I did this shortly before posting it and I wanted to simulate a bit Infrared (which is what I do now with my Canon 5DMK2) and I have a lot of fun with it. The subject just offered a better symmetry after I applied this in channel mixer.....
For comparison here is the color version

very strange place in the navy yard
Played a wedding (trumpet) at St. Joseph's Abbey in Covington, Louisiana today... snapped a quick one between rehearsal and ceremony.
Aptus ii-6, Mamiya 80/2.8D
I like it Shelby!
I like your first image - it has that enigmatical quality - that often comes with real life when it is cropped so the context or location is absent.
What iso did you shoot the second image at?
that second image was a puzzler. shot at 100 with the 43mm lens at f8. tried several exposures to get it. the place was quite dark, ended up with a 2 second exposure (counted out). had to bump it in post another stop. this is the H39 hasselblad back which does not do a dark frame subtraction.
in the end i liked the noise effect, but by no means was it under control
i tried 4 seconds, but kept getting a bright stripe flare effect ??? or a lot of banding.
first time i have done relatively long exposure with this back on a tech camera. dp not remember having these problems when shooting in the H body, maybe Phocus does corrections when it sees data from the Hbody, missing with a tech camera
something else i noticed on another shot with a 70mm lnes: I was taking two shots, one at about 12ft focus, one at inf, to use for focus blending. there was about a 1 stop exposure difference, due i suppose to the longer lens extension

Took a few more wit the P30+ .... my theme is fine art figure, a bit of the odd man out here. I like to share them anyway. Maybe my tastes will broaden with age. I got a 30mm Arsat manual focus lens, and some are in the set.
If you would like to view the whole set, drop me a PM, and I'll be happy to send you the user and password. If you did it once, I'm lazy .... try the ones I sent before.

Love that very strange place in the Navy Yard.
I am wondering if it might be suitable for use with a model?
double checked post from the Mac, and for some reason images from dropbox are not showing up. Will upload them to my server and link from there ....
Off for a bowl of meundo ... Lucky that my sons are adventurers.
Think that I got it fixed ..... if anyone could let me know I'd appreciate it.

bit of a squeaky place to get into, i was inside that curved "vessel" that is the door to the dry dock, about behind the third porthole from the right, top row he,he
Great shot, great colours! I love the weird join between pink and green.

This photograph was taken in Zion National Park with a Pentax 67 and a Pentax 75mm lens back in 2000 using Fuji Velvia. I bracketed my exposures, but the dynamic range of the scene was way beyond the range of the film and a ND filter would not work because of the irregular break between the highlights and the shadows. The film sat there for 11 years. I recently looked again at the exposures and, thanks to the new technology in Photoshop that permits the computerized alignment of scans, I was able to blend two exposures together, one for the highlights and one for the shadows. Amazing how you can now rescue "useless" photographs using modern technology.

was out shooting with my daughter and the Rollei, way back when, the fat pixel P20
one of the weird effects in the 4 sec exposure
That looks like centerfolding, and I thought Phocus had a correction for it?
another version, also 4 sec
i can't believe the colors i find in the navy yard, so amazing.
One from White Pocket in early May. EXIF shown in lower left border. Used Tonal Contrast preset in nik Color Efex Pro to add definition to the clouds and foreground. The red tint in the clouds on the left is natural and apparently is not unusual in "red rock" country.
Great images on this thread; I especially like the Hong Kong shot. Here's one from last night (July 3) similar to one I posted on the 645D thread. No PS adjustment, this is what nature supplied. Dark foreground is Lake Erie and beach. 645D 45-85mm.
Just getting cranking with my IQ180. Just posted one in the images to share forum.
From my first real outing with the IQ180/645DF. Not "fine art" but one of my favorite local subjects - Yates Mill in Raleigh, NC. The spot just left of upper center is a vulture that is easy to ID at 100% resolution. The 645DF is just an average camera body, but the IQ180 is absolutely fantastic.
Impressive IQ, Joe. (No pun intended.) The detail is phenomenal.
Kilroy was here
Decided to try to shoot Windows through the turret arch (yes, backwards from the traditional view). Not a great shot, but thought it was sort of funny ... looks like some alien face.
PhaseOneDF with PhaseOne 28mm, IQ180 back, 30 seconds at f/11 ISO 35
