Thomas Edison's Ft. Myers, Florida chemical and biological laboratory where he tried to synthesize or find a natural source of rubber into the early 1900's. Leica IIIf, Summaron 35/3.5, Kodak Portra 160NC, 1/5 sec @ f/11, drugstore develop and scan to CD. This picture taken 13 April 2010. Nik Dfine to reduce noise/grain, Viveza to bring out from shadows blue bottle on the left, light Sharpener Pro, finally Topaz Adjust for another look and more latitude. This is still not the greatest vantage point--a jumble of vials and test tubes--but best I could do under the crowded, hurried circumstances, we are all behind a rope barrier. (Everybody around me stopped, held still and held their breath while I hunkered down and took the shot, I must've had that steely look in my eyes...think I should've gone to f/16 because this is zone focus...I've had good luck with slow shutter speeds and these focal-plane shutters so I'm not afraid to go down that low. My lowest acceptable shutter speed with ff dslr is 1/500.) [ATTACH]198400[/ATTACH]
Thomas Edison's Ft. Myers, Florida laboratory, where he and his wife wintered from 1886 to 1930 and he tried to synthesize or find a natural source of rubber. Leica IIIf, Summaron 35/3.5, Kodak Portra 160NC, 1/5 sec @ f/11, drugstore develop and scan to CD, Nik Silver Efex Pro Sepia 2, burnt edges, this is a crop of about half of the negative. (Taken 13 Apr 2010) This is wild, I used to have an old 5x7 B&J and this shot looks just like it--only with a 35mm! [ATTACH]198333[/ATTACH]
