    Beach Imagery

    They look nice. I think I prefer the first. Maybe a bit 'clean' (for my personal taste) but that could add up to something. Are they digital, they have that kind of look? At anyrate I suggest you...

    Great composition. Quite abstract. Almost like a ball floating in mid air. Lovely tonality.

    I only just read your post Earl, but like others before me, I want to extend my deepest sympathies. I am so sorry for your loss. Words are never enough but I pray you will be well.

    Film transport problem

    Thanks Sam
    I don't have a film scanner capable of 6x6 so I can't share the negs, although I have to say that even under the brightest light the negatives look to hold no useful information and I...

    Before I trash another film I would like a second opinion. The camera is a modified 120 rollfilm Lubitel 166 Universal (that's the one with the spacial back door that flips open when you are half way...

    Cleethorpes Street

    Cheers Marv
    You just renamed it! I think it's the smile that makes this one. (Well there's not really much else there!) If I can sort out that fault line I'll do more street.

    Slit camera

    It's been a weak of bum exposures and wasted paper. As far as this camera goes I'm now shooting at f.32 and god knows what I've created, it's prooving a very difficult camera to tame. In fact I'm...

    Cleethorpes Street

    Having blown a few frames on the sands, I headed along the promenade to try a bit of street photography. Here's a funny thing - in my head I switched mentally to a 35mm wide angle forgetting I had a...

    Cleethorpes Pier

    Unexpectedly a couple of weeks ago I found myself with the family visiting Cleethorpes, on the coast of North East Lincolnshire, England, looking out to the North Sea. I love out of season seaside...

    General Repairs

    That is fantastic! I love it. It's a great image with wonderful tones. It almost has a pencil drawing look about it which is all the more emphasised with the detail on the door. Paper negative too....

    That might be better emphasised if I pulled out some detail from the building - the windows are almost there. But hang on, don't we need a shady figure exhaling cigarette smoke?

    Interesting because after I dropped to 72 dpi I got viewable results. Anyway, I'll bear all these points in mind in future, although as I stated before I never had a problem until very recently. Nice...

    I found this pinhole camera in the cellar yesterday. I made it a few years ago. It's a square tin, fl=30mm or less. anyway I did some quick reckoning and decided I'd kick out with a working f.stop...

    Hi All
    Don't know what is going on but somehow the last few images I tried reducing to below 100k resulted in tiny thumbnails that pixelate badly if enlarged.

    Cheers guys. Agree the horizon is a killer. I'm intending blowing this one up to a 10x10 but I will definitely 'correct' it. I used a Zero 2000 and the irony is if I'd taken more care I would have...

    abat-jour

    Fantastic! I love this. The clothes on the hanger look so sharp, almost as if you used a lens but the sofa/bed opposite is so soft - looks as if someone may have been sleeping there or moving around.

    Zone Series: Leaving the Body
