    These were shot with my Yashicamat. On Provia 100F film.

    Obviously, I'm looking up at the Saguaro. I was able to rest the polarizing filter over the taking lens.

    looks like a few birds made this Saguaro their home.

    wish I would have had a polarizing filter on this shot.

    I had to crop this one because there was a staple hole through the top of the image.

    Great photos, but they seem a bit dark overall.

    Might be your monitor. I'm calibrated and actually a bit on the dark side. These slides are a bit low key though too.

    Can't believe we missed out on that weather while we where there a couple weeks ago (50-60F and rainy). That's the Arizona I remeber. Thanks for the little reminder, as I look out side at the snow falling!

    voo,

    On the last 2, I love the composition (excellent foreground and background) and the lighting is choice but still a bit dark for me. I really wish i could make out the details of the fallen log more :(

    Hrmm, i've notice that your last set was a bit on the dark side too. Since you are in the desert, do you underexpose your shots too? Just curious.

    The last set was definately underexposed. And that was on a better scanner. Unfortunately the tonal range on this scanner isn't that great. When I adjust the scans to a suitable contrast I tend to lose shadow detail.

    I think the background looks more washed out now but... it's a trade off I guess.

    Nice pictures voo. I like the last one the best. Although I didn't get to see the original, I like it the way it is. There's a very nice warm tone. It works very well for the picture, in my opinion.

    Holy Moly, those are stupendous. I love the deep, saturated colors, the use of light and shadow and the depth of the pictures. It reminded me strongly of when I lived in Sedona one spring a long time ago.
