    Victor:

    In California, along a secluded stretch of coastline, we have a nuclear power plant. It uses the nearby ocean for it's cooling pond, taking in sea water from a half-kilometer up-current and then discharging it down-current near the power plant. Where this shot is taken is at the discharge station, and what the area looks like.

    Cheers,

    looks like salt that killed vegetation (or something an Alien with diarrhea would leave behind!)

    it would be funny if it were not so sad.

    I can't stop laughing.

    Sorry Victor Jack will have to explain why I am laughing so hard. I've gone out shooting with Jim.

    Beautiful images James. I must say, however, that your gallery makes it hard for me to look at them. I am on a broadband connection, but each image takes 15-20 seconds to load and change...it is a bit of a problem. At least they are worth the wait!

    thank you.

    i've noticed over the past few days, the performance from that server has been suffering. i've sent an email off to the admin to see what's up. i hope that will be fixed shortly

    Loads quickly for me Jim.

    Nice images.

    I think I prefer the B&W to the duotone ones. Have you any of those done in cold tones? Or is that to obvious?

    Graham, how did you fix the eyes? It looks very seamless. Did you photograph her again, or did you have another shot where they were more of less in the right position?

    I actually found one good eye in another shot, and flipped it to make two. Same with her right arm - stolen from another shot with right lighting. And the horse no longer looks spooked.

    There is something to be said about that 22 MP chip --- stunning smoothness and tonality.

    Graham,

    Beautiful image!

    Does "my old back" mean you have a new one or that it is an older generation?

    Oh sorry I see, this image was from an e22, and you now have a 54LV.

    Best,

    Mitchell

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Jim this is a 2 stitch horizontal correct. I am getting this Horseman also with the 35mm digitar and i really like the idea of having this around. Now from what Lance showed me was a 4 stitch and just move back to each corner

    yea.. this is actually a 3 stitch ( i prefer more overlap)

    with the 35mm, you need to stop down quite a bit to get the most coverage

    most of the shosts i do are f11 or 16

    Jim, ddk
    Love those shots.
    The horseman may be the forcing function that gets me into a MF back (maybe even a lowly P25)
    and ddk, I second Jim's remark
    I have never met a nude on a fire escape that I didn't like.

    Ever see Michael Kenna's images of the Ford Rouge Steel Plant?

    I love Kenna's work.. have a large number of his books (although i don't have the Steel Plant one yet.. )

    I'd *love* to get to Detroit to shoot the Steel plant.. actually anything industrial, old, decaying, etc

    The Horseman is the only one I've had my hands on and tried (and then found one on ebay). I imagine the geared movements might be nice.. although i'm not sure how much they'd slow me down for shift stitches. the only gotcha i've found so far with the Horseman, has been the danger of loosening the vertical knob when the back is fully raised.. if you don't have a hold of the back, it can be an abrupt stop for it when it hits the bottom of the movement.

    Maybe one of these workshops will have the Alpa or Cambo available.

    The last Micheal Kenna print I sold from my collection fetched $6,000. It was a small print. Maybe that's a clue
