    Columbia River Gorge

    This is from my trip West last summer. The Columbia River Gorge transforms from high desert to arboreal rain forest in the course of about 75 miles. It was a very windy day, so neither of these images had a steady tripod. Even the 40 lb wooden surveyors tripod could not overcome the sail-like qualities of my plywood 8x10 camera in gale force winds. I think that the images might still be worth viewing. Tell me what you think.

    scanned from the negative

    I scanned in color, and used a channel mixer layer to convert it to monochrome.

    I really like the first one Earl! I have read that we all need to take a golf umbrella with us while we are making images. It can be used to sheild the camera from the wind!

    No. 1 is really a great image Earl! IMO, the wind does not appear to have had any negative effect on image quality. Love those clouds. Well done! "8x10 Rules"

    Regards,

    Reminds me of when I made a 16x20" camera from foam core - quite worthless when the wind blew. OTOH, these are just fine, especially the first one, which has a wonderful feeling to it.

    Cheers -

    I like these very much Earl, particularly the first. That HC110 dilution H has rendered the tonality of these landscapes beautifully.
    P.S. Many thanks for your kind comment on my opening salvo.
