That is a James Dandy image, knut. Nice tonality, just enough vignetting, and the highlights still have some texture. I also like the companion image of the camera - it gives us a little taste of what a l**s sees at the same scene.

This is really wonderful image, knut. I like the constrast of the crisp snow and ice against the flowing water. Very well done.

that shot is epic, exactly what I like to see.

Another winner, Knut, and you get extra credit for setting up the tripod in that *cold* water.

i'm beginning to expect this sharp/fuzzy contrast in your photos, and i love it. nice work.

Yeah - three thumbs up on this! I really like the white/ice in the center. Then a second look (sign of good/interesting art - you see something new each time you look at it) reveals a nice contrast between crisp cold ice with many textures, opaque & clear and the running dark water underneath.

Hope the goretex boots worked
The non goretex boots almost worked :-/

i am new to the board, having been introduced by a friend as a way of sharing his work from 320 miles away, and can say that i never knew what potential a pinhole camera had! this is just stunning. it amazes me what can be done! i think i may have to talk very nicely to the above mentioned and see if i can perhaps borrow his, although i can't imagine getting anywhere near this standard!

01-09-2006, 06:17 PM
Borrow if you must, Rach, but eventually you're going to want your own... ;)

01-09-2006, 06:28 PM

you are probably right!!!
maybe when the funds allow... :)

rach - Don't borrow the camera - make your own. All you need is an Xacto knife, some black foamcore or mattboard, some white glue, and empty soda can, and a needle. I think that pinhole photography is much more fun and much less intimidating if you make your own cameras. Browse the camera making section for inspiration.

And welcome to f295!

hi earl

thanks for the welcome!
maybe i will just do that! have read some of the 'how to' bits re making a pinhole camera and it seems fairly simple!

will let you know any results!

rach :)
