    Those were taken around pinhole day but not quite on the day (Zero 2000, Fuji Reala).

    I like them all but I swear there is no way to get into critique of a pinhole images. There is nothing else like it and if you haven't shot them you have no idea what one can do with them.

    I have shot them and still have no idea what all one can do with them. These as just plain images would be very good. As pin hole photos I don't see how they could be any better.

    Actually they are all very nice shots....a little soft, but I expect that's the pinhole effect.

    Yes. You are right. If we could take perfectly sharp pictures through a simple hole we would not spend so much money on lenses.;) To me, pinhole photography is not about sharpness but more about infinite depth of field and long exposures.

    To be perfectly honest pin hole or even paper negs require a great deal of luck... You never have any idea how the image will turn out, but you have invested so much time in it that it is a challenge to save something from it. That in itself makes them a great learning tool.

    Very interesting. To me, these images have a dream-like quality.

    Really good pinhole work, with rich colors and interesting subject matter - you nailed this series, Steph.

    Always fun to see your pinhole work. :)

    The last one is like being in a dream. Love it.

    Fantastic! What was your exposure time on number 4? That last one is a real virtuoso performance.

    Thank you. I cannot remember exactly the exposure time. In the 5-10 min range, I think. The museum was actually fairly crowded but as people were moving around they did not show on film.
