    I used Polaroid Pro-100 4x5 sheet film for these. I knew it would give a golden tone and thought using film strips in the Daylab would be freaky. ;) I thought these negatives would work ok, since the trees stand out well against the sky. Gave a 30-second pull instead of the usual 10-12, to allow for a little more ink migration off the neg. Then reworked a little with pastels to brighten some areas.

    Just playing, really. :) What do you guys think?

    Wow, that is definitely different! Love the colors and tones of the images...

    One of these days you are going to have to make it to a TPF trip and show us all how to do this stuff! :)

    Sorry I'm late. :D I love these!!!! Pictures like this are the reason I got into messing with polaroids. I think they truly show "art" and photography blended into one form.

    Thanks guys! It is fun to start out with a negative and end up with something that looks a bit surreal.

    Gee Hobbes, did I forget to mention along the way that you can use film strips in the Daylab, too??? Just think of it....all those possibilities... :twisted:

    I'll get to you yet, my pretty!! ;)

    Evil, evil woman. It's bad enough just wanting it for the manipulations. :biglaugh:
