    Liverpool waterfront buildings

    Hello and greetings to all you fellow pinholers.

    Firstly, I have to say what a great site this is.
    Tom, along with all the regular contributors and the steady stream of newer participants are providing a very positive space for individuals to learn different approaches, share (without fear of ridicule) what they've produced, and simply become inspired.

    I thought I'd just try pitching in as a 'participant' to see if this works and introduce myself by way of an image made with my current favourite self-made camera Dimmerbox f.225 (focal length 67mm).

    This pinhole offering was made in August 2009 in my home city of Liverpool.

    Details: Silverprint Proof paper / 2 minutes exposure (approx) / Green filter / Ilford PQ dev 1+9 / 5ΒΌ" x 5" paper neg digitally reversed and flipped using an Epson 4490 scanner.

    By clicking on the image, I can get a smaller image that I can take in all at once, i.e. without scrolling.

    Very nice image -- wonderfully composed with a great range of tones.

    I look forward to seeing more of your work!

    Many thanks for your helpful advice and comment DRC.
    I'm guessing that I should have optimised a 72 or 90 dpi image file, rather than the 300dpi file that I used.
    I will try this with my next posting.
    Be assured I'll definitely be posting more and hope to offer some informed comment on recent and future images.

    Nice work. The exposure is well done, especially for a paper negative. I love the subtle vignette. I don't know if we have any other Liverpuddlians who contribute regularly. Welcome to f295!

    That is a great introduction, thanks for joining. I must say the high values on the globe are exquisite.

    An excellent introduction, I'm sure you must have more of the city.

    What a fine introduction. I have never achieved such an exquisite range of tones on paper.

    Dear all,

    Many thanks for your kind comments on my first submission. You've made me feel most welcome.

    Birdbox's and Earl's comments have prompted me to select a number of my pinhole favourite's, made in 'The Pool of Life'. These, maybe three at a time, will be my next postings.
