    Whilst looking around my Library I thought this made for an interesting photograph. Technically it's not B/W so I posted in General. Processing was done with Apple's Aperture and Nik Software's SilverEfex Pro.

    Thanks for looking.

    im hooked on old bookshops right now so i really like it. i like the tone a lot as well. the only thing i wish was that the hot spots on the tea cup were a little more subdued, a bit softer feeling. what's in it by the way? nut's? rocks? shells?

    Thanks. Yeah I should probably tap down the highlights a little, appreciate the suggestion.

    In the cup are some shells, an acorn and the item on top is a small very old tin of mints :)

    Very nice image. I have wanted to shoot something like this for a while, but I don't have worn out books like yours :)

    Nice image; love it. I bet you could come up with lots more for a series.

    Well, you gotta keep re-reading them until they look worn enough. :mrgreen:

    Libraries...

    ...I think I've heard of them, weren't they around before the internet?






    All kidding aside, I really like the tonal range. On my monitor, the teacup's highlights don't appear as hot spots. Maybe I need a better monitor? :)

    Interesting, they are not clipping but they are bright on my monitor, but on the print they are fine (Thanks to 10.5 OS-X my Epson R1800 is still hell to get a decent print out off!). I use a Huey Pro to calibrate the screens.
