    Interesting, years ago I used something similar in the darkroom. I'd sandwich a positive and negative film and expose a print, which would yield a line drawing. By shifting the layers slightly you could vary the width of the lines.

    Yes, indeed. To obtain a very thin and uniform line over the entire image, I always did positive and negative on top of a sheet of lith film (Agfa O81) and then this "package" was rotated on a small turntable in the light beam of the enlarger. The head of the enlarger was placed at an angle of 45 degrees. The thickness of the line could be influenced by adding 1 or more transparent lith films between positive and negative. The lithfilm could be conversed, colored, printed etc. Man, I long for the analogue darkroom techniques...

    Great I always wanted to do a shot of this place now a reason.

    It is an old powerhouse on the rock river so theres water bridges 15 to 20 ft spillways spewing water so a lot of good elements

    I think the assignment was to take three. Well, I took 42. And combine them into a single image. I am still learning the image compositing tool, and there are things about this I am not satisfied with. But, it was still fun and I learned from the experience.

    This is shot at the Air Force Memorial in Arlington Virginia. Oh, and today is anything but bleek. The color version of this image is loaded with deep blue.

    Since this is not a landscape, I'm going to ask that you delete it and move it to a more appropriate thread please. There is the black and white gallery where you can start your own thread for this photo or take a look through the "themes" forum and find a better suited thread please. Thanks!

    Nice! I've been toying with the idea of getting a wide angle but this takes it to the next level. Wow. Share more.

    Well I am not sure how to post link to flicker image yet but here are my 3. These were taken with Nikon Coolpix A10 camera which is just a cheap pocket auto camera. 10 degrees out, Overcast, 30-40 mph winds.

    lol went out by river too I was on a shooting spree took 51 photos today all in black and white. Also all 3 are of the same spot from 3 different angles. They are raw from the camera which puts them out as JPG no post done
