    Hi aerialview, welcome to ThePhotoForum.
    Thanks for introducing yourself with a photo here. If you want to tell us more about yourself, there also is an Introduction Forum a bit further down :).

    So eggs was your subject?
    Somehow I was expecting an aerial view ... can't quite nail, why ;) ;) ;).
    Interesting lighting.
    Any reason why there is no focus?

    And CanonMan, I'm sure this was film, he/she says "printed on Ilford RC".
    While I am clueless as to the meaning of the RC, printed suggests "paper" to me and Ilford is a brand name of black and white films and photo paper.

    pretty cool. i like the blown spots, shadows and the fact nothing's in focus ;) works well here. i'll head to the refrig later and see what possibilities exist. :)

    welcome to TPF!

    I like it, too. The blurred focus allows it to be more about shape and shadow than about eggs, although it's still obvious that's what they are.

    mmm, Tri-X. :)

    RC = resin-coated paper (I remember the old days, back when I first took up photography, when there was almost a holy war between proponents and detractors of RC papers.)

    And, yes, it was film. The "shot on tri-x" should have been a dead giveaway. Once again, maybe people don't remember this anymore, but Tri-X was (is?) Kodak's high-speed B&W film, and probably the most common stock for those wanting to shoot in B&W.

    What I'm curious about is the pink cast to the shot, since Tri-X isn't color. Was it printed to color RC paper using filtration? Or was the cast added digitally after the image was scanned?

    Very nice abstract style image that has good light/shadow play. Very nice.

    I'm thinking...something from the future OR an unusual and unknown selection from the Chinese buffet.
