Hope your well, you have being quiet, must be working hard! Luckily the main sail pitched south on this one and everything fell into place!

Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)))) how did you do so dramatic contrast. Your style is uncompareble. Dalibor

2c on June 26, 2009

Hi Dalibor, The contrast was achieved here by using B/w film with a red filter, The important thing here was putting the sun behind the sail which diffused the exposure & direct light, thus holding the details in the foreground! The rest was just Darkroom printing!! Delighted you like this, It's a fav of mine!

Warmest regards from Dublin h

Dalibor Kállay on June 30, 2009

Wait a minute!!! It isn't digi photo? Did you shoot that on film camera? All your B/W pictures look like classic B/W, but i thought that you used soft filter like Contrast Master.

I have tried to make similar postprocesing on my photos, but it is imposible :)))) Thank you very much

What camera and lenses do you have. I have also one old SLR. My lovely Pentax MZ-5N. Great Camera!!! But i prefer to shoot to digi :)

Greetings Dalibor

Hi Dalibor! Hope your well! This was shot on t-max B/w film with a red filter on the lens. The Lens was a classic 28mm wide angle Nikkor lens (which someone nicked since!) The camera was a Nikkormat (pre Nikon export from the 60's), They were simple & really wonderful manuel camera's, they take brillant quality pics. I still have two at home but since i lost my beloved lens i don't use them much!! Currently i use a digi canon 5dmk2, It fine... but i also use a old canon 20d which i love & think takes really wonderful digi pics!

Warmest regards from Dublin! h
