This one from way back in the archive during the film days. Shot with a Nikkormat FT2, 55mm Micro Nikkor, Kodachrome 25 and a polarizer(I think). The road and many buildings on the Google map didn't exist at the time of this capture. Progress? Anyway it's rather fun processing these old shots. :) ~Tom
Since this is a scanned slide does the image have a different look than digital capture to you?
Hi Tom, I'm proud to increase your picture counter to two ;-) . The atmosphere made out of light and fog is beautiful!
For me this photo-scan makes no difference to a digital image. Often users are not aware about the correct scanning parameters and then (only then) it looks different.
Very nice Tom...love the light in this photo.
Magic indeed Tom, it's a beautiful photo.
The light in this shot is truely magic. I can´t say I see anything inherently different being a scanned image. FRED
Tom this is another magic photo in your gallery!
greetings from Poland
old or new ..still a very atmospheric and fine shot TOm
i have to agree to lm. the grain in this capture doesn't matter.
Fantastic photo. Greetings from Poland. Joanna
Very mystical and very beautiful. Lovely!
Beautiful shot Tom!
Greetings from Holland, Tjarko
Another great photo of great Tom :-)
Tom, my english excuses, I am thinking about understanding that it is an analogical photography (a slide) ancient. I think that it is a great work. Is it very treated in ps., or only the step of the analogical one to the digital?. An embrace. Jose.
Excuse me, I forgot, it is a great work, with a great light and a good setting. Jose.
Very Beautiful image Tom and Portfolio :)greetings Archie
Many, many thanks to H.S., Bob, Bert, Fred, kubek-77, LM, KURY, Joanna, Margot, Tjarko, Rafal, Catherine, snake, Jose Mauri and Archie for all of the great comments and compliments on this one. Very much appreciated.
This image(an 11"x14") has been framed and has been hanging on my wall for the last 25 years so I thought a digital rework and replot was in order. And I can now print a full frame(12"x18") digital aspect ratio plot of the whole image. Jose- I did some clone work to get rid of the ever present dust that is always on these slides, a slight increase in contrast and saturation and finally applied an unsharp mask. That work was done in Nikon Capture NX2. ~ Seems to still have the mood I always loved based on the responses. :)
Best regards to all from Virginia,
P.S. My feeling on the look is that it has that "soft yet sharp" look of slide film I love so much. :)
Tom, I'd hang that on my wall for 25 years too! If I had such a magical shot ... truly wonderful, and thanks for taking the time to scan it for us! Gold star of course!
Very kind of you Nawitka. Thank you very much. Of course a Gold Star deserves a special thank you. :)
All the best from Virginia, Tom
