    Survey of the river of some sort, I was too far away to see what exactly he was up to, but I do know he was federal conservation branch of some form or another.

    Thanks, that reflection played havok with my scanner.

    I think the shot is interesting but the lighting seems a little flat and the horizon being off center throws me off...

    Not much grain for asa 800 and nice color rendition. Great Job.

    If I'm not mistaken, DeadEye, this was ASA400 film...

    I definitely like this photo, especially all the water included in the frame. It makes me seems as if I am there...

    Thanks, and we where getting some great weather at the time but it got nasty over the last few days, nothing but rain and wind.


    Yeah, I've been paying attention lately, I can't tell you howmany times I've been told/read to overexpose slightly to decrease the appearance of the grain, but up untill about a month ago I just could not seem to put it into practice with any consistancy.

    Thanks, Believe it or not I actually had to reduce the color saturation about ten points during processing. I generally run just about everything threw an tonal range maximizing to get everything the film got. After finding the source of the color casting issues I have been having and the process of eliminating that, I have found color :lmao:



    Thanks. I was a little surprised (in a good way) at how little the hight difference shows in this, this was shot from twenty feet or so from the surface. :D


    DeadEye has been viewing my work for a wile, In fact he is the person I bought that lens from :D. He is correct on the film speed.
