    Flowers By the River

    From a recent roll through my Vermeer 6x9 camera.

    Ilford XP2 film. Exposure was around a second.

    Light toning and adjustments in Photoshop. Attached files

    Just when we thought it was safe to consider the zone plate section as a 'dead-zone'

    up pops Dave Cerbone with an absolute sockdolager (as Earl would say) .


    Magnificent tones, softness, atmosphere, textures all in such a beautifully balanced image.

    Top stuff Mr C !

    David, this is really a great bw zone plate picture. From my experience with zone plate it is much more difficult to get an excellent picture in bw than in color. Very well done!

    Dave - I did not remember that you dipped your toe into the zp pool once in awhile. This is a wonderful image!

    Leave it to Earl to bring a word as obscure and unusual as sockdolager into the popular lexicon of the pinhole vocabulary.

    And I whole heartfelt agree...it is a marvelous image. Such a full range of tones and the rich low values that impart a real depth into the photo.. Well done!

    A hauntingly beautiful image - like peering into an enchanted forest. The glow surrounding the flowers makes the picture. Great stuff Dave. Please may we have some more?

    Regards,

    Lawrie.

    I've never got the knack of zoneplate. Clearly you have. Excellent shot, magical light. You must do more!
