    Well, over Thanksgiving break, I snapped some photos of silos and a few other things back at home. Here they are, what do you think?

    Well, personally, I like 6 and 7 best, but think 8 needs more of a point of focus. 2 is my favorite after those. The rest of the shots aren't bad, but don't really do anything for me personally. Seems like they all also have a tiny bit of a red tint.
    I'd comment more, but there are more qualified people around ;)

    Just a few questions, Curly:

    1. What camera/film combo did you use? They appear to be square negatives, so I'd guess you used your Yashica.

    2. Did you use a polarizer?

    3. Did you do any post processing when you scanned the negs?

    Overall I think they're not too bad. The colors have your quintessential Midwest-in-the-fall look to them (gray sky, brown trees, sorta green grass, etc) but nothing is really popping out at me. Not that I condone a black and white conversion of color scans, but did you consider black and whites? How about re-shooting with a black and white film?

    I like the subject itself, though.

    1. Yes, I used the Yashica with Kodak Portra 400CN

    2. Nope, no polarizer

    3. And no post processing

    And I will probably try that again with some black and white film to see how it comes out... i do think it would look better in B&W

    And thanks!

    You're welcome. :thumbup:

    It's not that I don't think color film would work for some of the things in these shots. The yellow grain auger, for example. And at the bottom of the grain bins is an orange something (can't quite see what it is..a blower, maybe??) that might be an interesting subject.

    I just try to save my color film for brightly colored things. Then again, i've got an affinity for primary colors! :D
