    'Hand Colored' WPPD Image

    Here's my WPPD image. It's pink plastic tape against grass and foliage. I shot on Tri-X using a Cameo 637 (f128). 30 second exposure. Developed in HC-110 dilution H. I scanned the negative and cropped it. I took a piece of the plastic tape and a leaf from the scene (my back yard), and scanned them to sample the colors. Then I 'hand colored' the black and white image using the sampled colors.

    I am most impressed, I would never have thought of doing such. Top marks, very original and nice to view.

    What a cool idea, Mark. This is a peek into a new genre of image - I hope that you plan to work on this a bit.

    Thanks for the comments. I quite like the concept, but recognize it will be difficult to apply in many (most) situations. It would be hard, for example, to bring a car home to scan the color. Or a building. And so on. But I'm going to look for opportunities to make more images like this. I was not very happy with the work I did 'painting' the plastic ribbon on the prior submission (above). So I made another interpretation. Slightly different crop. Different approach to coloring the image in post processing. Otherwise the same. I think this one is better.

    nice work Mark! in the case of the car, you could always snap a digitial pic and sample the color from that... or just bring it home and slap the scanner on it
