    Jim,
    You have an artists's eye... that last shot is something very special.

    Another sunset at the South Rim. Same equipment used, Cambo WRS1000, P45+, Schneider 72mm lens and of course the Cube. No drama this time other than freezing various parts off while waiting.



    This was a 2 shot pano going out to 15mm both directions.

    Fantastic series you posted but this one is the best, IMO. The chair is hilarious. I think it would look great printed large.

    The post processing is mostly a processes of building up contrast with a bleach bypass filter. A number of plug ins have this, I happen to use the one in Tiffen (use to be DFT 55mm). You should be able to download a trail version, but I would look at it pretty close before buying. It has a lot of stuff, most of which I can't find a use for. You have to be careful when using them as they can screw up a file pretty quickly. I know I took it into Alien skin and photo kit but I honestly can't remember if I ended using much of the result.

    This is the before and after to give you an idea of the starting point.

    Douglas: I like what you have done with this image (and the other portraits). And I appreciate you posting a "before and after" version here. Thank you. IMO your vision of how to process the image is very appealing.

    I took the liberty of playing with your original image (the one on the left above) and enjoyed pushing it around in Photoshop without plugins to arrive at a similar destination. I think you've done great with your process, and I appreciate your note of caution to would-be buyers of specialized software prior to buying. I'm sure that your postings will inspire many of us to experiment outside of our normal comfort zones.

    Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting your work.

    Thank you very much. These are non-cropped 39mp shots, so the resolution is there to print large.

    When I saw that chair I had to hold back the excitement; I knew it would be a fantastic element in the photograph. I'll probably be putting up a small set of them online (my website) within a few days.

    Kind regards,

    Thank you very much indeed, much appreciated. I usually dislike Fun with Filters but your treatment here is just great! So now I'll try to copy it!

    It's been a while since I've posted, so I thought I would share these shots. Not the typical fodder of this thread, but I like 'em. This is an ongoing marketing campaign I've been shooting for OtterBox (the case manufacturer). All are shot with my P30+, 150D lens w/ ext tube.

    If you have never seen the aurora, it is worth braving the arctic (or anarctic) winter some day. It is one of the most amazing things you'll ever see. What you cannot convey in a photograph is the way that it moves. It dances and ripples like a flag in the wind.
    How long was your exposure?

    Lovely shot Jim!

    Victor -- I believe that was about 30 seconds of exposure, but it was a few years ago, so I do not remember...as I said, it was balanced on a rock so I wanted to keep it as short as possible.

    Stuart:

    I really like you Aurora shot -- different than the typical ones I've seen and I like that! I don't know my night skies very well, especially that far North -- but is that the constellation Cancer (or maybe Hydra) by any chance?

    Re: Fun with MF images - Part 3

    To tell you the truth Jack, I have no idea. As much as I like being out in the dark, I really don't know any of the constellations other than orion and the big and little dippers. I believe the shot was taken in January or February 2008 if that helps at all...
    I am glad you like the shot though! Unfortunately we are at a 20 year low for auroral activity, so nothing much going on lately...I have only seen a couple small auroras this winter. But when it does happen, I like to try to compose it just like any other photograph -- it really helps to have something interesting in the rest of the image, rather than just a image of only the aurora itself.

    You don't even need to go that far north to see one; I once saw one a late summer evening in Toronto! It was just swirling around and moving in strange ways for about 15 minutes. I was absolutely riveted. I had never seen anything like it before. FTR, Toronto is only a little north of Rome, latitude-wise.

    +1! Love the feel of this one Woody, the lines all square and true with the random water towers and window AC units adding interest. But the thing that aces it IMO is the bridge peeking through the background -- PERFECT!

    PS: Also this image speaks incredibly well for the new zoom! (I am guessing it'll see a lot of use on the workshop ) I wish I had something similar for the Mamiya system...

    Jim, like this one a lot. I was actually surprised to learn how many older covered bridges still exist in CA -- over 50, but maybe half of them are private/commercial. I recently found a "real" one I didn't know about in the Central valley outside of Waterford. I have plans to go photograph it in fog on my next day trip out . Is this the one at Roaring Camp or Graham Hill?

    Thanks Peter.

    I've had the lens for a week now so I'm just learning it. Optically it's very, very good (but not perfect, the way a Summilux 40 is perfect at f5.6); it has charisma; the images shot with it stand out for a certain "transparent" quality. I'm very happy with it. 35 is wide enough for most purposes so it reduces my MF carry around kit to the camera and this lens. It's big, but it balances well - I'm hand holding it with no problem. I bought it at a promotional price; I think the promotion ended at year-end.

    So far so good.

    Looks good Woody , look forward to seeing what you can do with it at the workshop with the Salton Sea. I think I may go get a 80 1.9 for it for a different look
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    So far so good.

    The promotion ended on the 24th of December...I figured that out about the 28th.

    Jim - really inspiring work!

    Felipe - My shot was taken with the Schneider Apo-Digitar 4.5/90mm N on an Alpa.

    Re: Fun with MF images

    Well Jim, your series whit shots from the woods really struck a nerve whit me, they are really great!
    I especially like the short focal dept.

    I have this summer spent a great deal of my time walking backwards into the future.
    I am becoming more and more intrigued whit the use of chemical sensors. There is a subtle different compared to my digital sensors. Some I can explain as a result of the camera used. My all time favourite is so far the Mamiya 6 whit its different optics ( all three of them ). I really like the RZ system but the Mamiya M6 is something special by one point extra. And compared to the RZ the range finder system of M6 is some thing completely different, the shallow depth of focus is the same but it is a point and shoot system... I am normally a long focal guy whit my RZ and Canon 1DSll system, but whit the Mamiya 6 I have to attack reality from a short focal length of view.

    So it is a bit irritating when has been about about -30 degrees Celsius (-22 F) here in Sweden where I live. The chemical sensors tends to become a bit fragile and fall apart in the camera, normally no problem whit the digital sensors

    I add a couple of photos from this summer from the Mamiya 6 system. The first two are old Porta 400 film that has been in and out of the freezer many times and is 2-4 years past prime times.
    The second two are Fuji Superia 400.

    So some thing I have to blame on the use of different type of sensors. But I can not fully explain the different feeling, but it is still there
    But the temperature is rising now, this morning it was only – 19 degrees Celsius (-2.2 F), so soon...
