Nice shot Keith it has stood the test of time well ~ all the best to you from nick
Kodachrome 25 RIP. Thanks Nick. This was taken at least 20 years before I even thought of moving to Blyth.
Hi Keith, amazing photography from that long ago, and no digicams! Has this skyline changed since then? I walk down to the bottom of our road in Norway, and the skyline has totally changed in the last 2 years!
Thanks Amelia. Most of the features in this photo are long gone, as they were associated with the Bates Pit, which closed in the 80s.
Nice composition Keith, reminds us that real film was pretty good!
Thanks Pete. It's making me think about using slides film instead of neg for my film photography. I am amazed at how bright that sky is above the sun, yet no loss of detail.
Slides are wonderful when it comes to viewing but at least in my hands it is harder to convert to view online, etc.
Another nice shot!
I have only uploaded a few from quite a large collection so far, but I am happy with the Canon Scanner. This shot had very little editing, possibly only "Auto Contrast" or "Auto Colour Correction" in Elements 5.
Thanks and good luck with yours jf.
Thanks brabason. This is a scan from a Kodachrome 25 slide and I was amazed at the quality of the result I read somewhere that slides don't have a very wide latitude, but I agree that at the moment digital can't touch this.
You can even discern the edge of the sun!!!
You are right! My Kodachrome slides are in much better condition than my Ektachrome ones (which have bowed through the heat of projector lamps). The Canoscan seems to do better with the Kodachrome as there may be a focus problem with the Ektachrome.
