Thanks for your ongoing support. This is probably the best photo I have ever taken and the good thing was that I saw it before I took it. I imagined the resultant image and knew it was going to be special. That is a massive step forward for me.

RE: My photo of the week 10 (in reply to Escribano

Yeah, thats a really nice one.

Just one question:
¿Is this a graveyard or is it a place where you dump things from graveyards?

Did you develop this one yourself Simon or did you use a digital camera? What's between the two tombstones in the foreground? Is that an empty yogurt container?

It's a somewhat negelected graveyard near my house. I used to work in such a place and they have always drawn me to them for a stroll now and again.

It's on film, developed and scanned at home.

I suspect it is an old container used for flowers somewhere else as these graves are probably too old to get the attention. I very, very rarely move anything before shooting it, especially not for aethetic reasons.

On the subject of film and digital, I have also acquired a really nice, cheap digital body on which I can mount my decent film lenses. Here is a digital version, which I think you can see is a pretty good alternative when I can't be bothered to develop a whole roll or need backup. The light in this spot helps a great deal.

Of course, both are digital images, in fact. The first one is a digital rendering from a negative by a scanner.

It's so much nicer to view the original photographic paper after developing the negative. The photos i have from growing up before the digital camera capture something i really like. They seem to lose the smoothness when i scan them into digital.

Completely agree, though I do not have a darkroom. I mainly use film because I love messing around with the old cameras. Something unique about their construction and feel.

I am awaiting delivery of a mint Kodak Retina SLR from 1960 this week

RE: My photo of the week 10 (in reply to Escribano

I have fond memories of photography in high school. Including the treacherous walk through the pitch black, zig zagging corridor that led from the doorway to the darkroom. There was always someone waiting in there.

But more so i remember the process of developing pictures we had taken with pinhole cameras and the art departments SLR cameras. Even if the photo was of poor quality it was exciting to develop and look at it.

I notice i delete so many photo's now. When i developed a film in the past, even the pictures i did not like at the time are great to look back on now.I should try and remember this and stop deleting pictures.

The contrast is harder on the 100% digi, but it could be worked out in Photoshop or even better in Camera raw.
To me, working one of these two programs (or both) is half the fun and todays answer to darkroom.

I agree, even the fim scans are converted to RAW for messing about in PhotoShop. I don't use a darkroom anymore and wouldn't have the space anyway.

Yep, it's all in the eye and the opportunity. Very nice shot. I would crop half the sky out. Rule of thirds is a useful guide. Try it.
