    Burr Pond at Dawn

    Sunday morning at the crack o' dawn. Burr Pond State Park is in northwestern Connecticut, around what is basically the foothills of the Berkshires.

    f/220 66mm fl foamcore camera for film holders
    4x5 Paper Negative
    Pre-flashed Grade 2 glossy paper

    Developed and scanned these last night. They are flipped and inverted in PS. Still need to spot them, make adjustments, etc. but was too lazy to get into it last night. Unfortunately this has been the trend lately and the negs in my "to be worked on" folder are starting to pile up!... :-/

    LV 9(ish?), 19 minutes:

    LV 11, 3 mins 45 sec:

    This last one was taken with my f/240 96mm foamcore camera which also uses 4x5 film holders
    These are the concrete pilings from an old dock which has been gone for years. I love how they line up perfectly with the tallest conifer on the small island across the lake.

    Those are beautiful. I really like the 2nd one ( rocks, near shoreline and especially the sky add a lot! )
    Out of curiosity, I wonder if you noticed a difference in the scanning "texture/noise" with glossy?

    Thank you, Ned. As a matter of fact, the differnece was remarkable. I have used glossy in the past, but it is so much more finicky to handle than semi matte, that I stopped using it for a couple years. I went online and ordered a 100 sheet box of grade 2 glossy this morning...

    I like that third one a lot. Very peaceful and serene, reminds me of that Shinto shrine in the water. I've been thinking lately of all of the great pics I see here on f295 that I would dig having a print of and this makes that list.

    The first one is best for me. All are very good with such a deep black tones.

    Thank you much.

    Isis, I spend all winter waiting for the days to get longer and then spring happens...and sunrise gets earlier...and earlier...and earlier...Sunday morning gets harder every week!

    Beautiful series, Ryan. Hard to pick a favorite (good thing I don't have to).

    (And be careful with that "to work on" folder!)
