<running outside with my camera in tow> I can't believe it. finally a theme dedicated to all of Wisconsin! BWB with those farm pics everybody.
James- super Saturday morning shot!
Jeff- where's the rest of it??
jack- I think that picture could define the term "rustic."
thanks for that photobug.
the 9x6 print itself is nicer than the scan.
too bad the far right background is blurry - handheld shot.
and i must start filtering those skies.
my scanner is not very cool - a HP scanjet bundled in with my pc in 99
from the local 'pc-world' type store. its a flatbed and , as careful as i am to
keep the print aligned with the guide of the bed, when i close the lid it'll
always move a couple of millimetres out of true. dunno - maybe its mind
playing tricks -my online stuff, therefore, never look as straight as
the actual prints, once ive cropped off the blank stuff. i experiment with 1
or 2 dgrees of rotation in fireworks but its not the same
anyone reading this who can suggest a better scanner for
around $150, please advise. i'd love a neg scanner - out of my league at
d'oh ! *slaps forehead*
if only i had a brain ..... i should tape the print to the guide !
It isn't that noticeable at this size.
Gaffer tape maybe, wouldn't want to gum things up.
I just put a dictionary (or other substantial book) on the print before I close the lid. If you get weird light streaks from the lid not being flat you can put a dark cloth over the whole mess.
SOme amazing pictures

I love farm photos!
James M, beautiful! I bet you couldn't wait to wake up if that's what you're greeting with.
Ooh, I love allt he different colors in the barn! I do wonder, though, if it would be better if there was just a bit of detail in the areas that are black, but I'm not sure...that may IMO detract from it. Hard to say for me without seeing it to compare.
Either way, I like it!
Don't know for sure why, but I'm attracted to barns and farm buildings/areas.
