Very cool, James.  I am stumped by the middle one, though.   Were you in space recently?

As much as I would like to travel to space, I guess I was born a bit early to experience such a ride. The picture is just a small detail from an advert I stumbled upon yesterday during a stroll through Berlin.

First HC-B (and I agree with John's comment), and now Australian artist Sidney Nolan: https://visual.artshub.com.au/news-article/reviews/visual-arts/glennys-marsdon/review-sidney-nolans-ned-kelly-series-agwa-256312

Again, those clear, clean compositions of yours are outstanding, Joerg.

Love it, Joerg.  Simplicity at its best.

Love the grain, I can almost feel the lovely texture.

 

Thank You very much, gentlemen :)

I have to say, that I didn't knew Sidney Nolan. Thanks for the link, Phil.

This photos are older ones and I only took them without any thoughts. That was just what I saw. At this time, I didn't knew HCB yet. I can't say, that my newer photos are inspired by anyone. I always go out and try to shoot, what I see. Sometimes digital, but also on film. The important fact is: I love to do this 😀

Regards Joerg

P.S.: My english is not as good as it should be. The english lessons at school are far away. Sorry 😔

This past Thursday night in NYC we had a VERY freakish event that caused the entire sky to turn bright blue for about 10 minutes and baffled millions of New Yorkers.  It was as if we were experiencing the "northern lights" only in bright blue.  Others believed that it was a UFO crash landing and that it was the end of humankind as we know it.

It turns out it was "just" an explosion at an electrical plant of Con Edison just outside of Manhattan in Long Island City/Astoria.  

Despite the reckless actions taken by our stupid electrical company, the explosion produced some really awesome colors in the sky. 

As I gazed up into that surreal bright blue sky, I couldn't help but think of Ektar, and this pre-dawn panorama that I took recently....

Who needs stupid electrical explosions when we have Ektar...? :)

Another great one, Adam!

I'm encouraged by how many film cameras I see in this article which is simply about a photography commission

I like it very much, Wayne. The artist just stands still and looks what he did. You captured the right moment.

Thank you Henry for comment and reference.

 Unfortunately this  is exactly the battery i have used (brand new, still 10y of shelf life).

the metering works, the opening of curtain works. Curtain does not shut in auto as well as manual unless in 60 or 125, the manual speeds.

exactly what had happened early dec again. Which then had disappeared when i deopped by the leica store

well, will drop again in the new year when back in London. In the meanwhile it is contax G2 and some digital with micro 4/3  (often with my legacy leica M optics).

enjoy

 

cheers

Very interesting.  Which film?

The last picture from Manfred reminds me of my task for the next months. I will have to scan my pictures from the 80s and 90s with more impressions from the every day life in East Berlin and the GDR. 

Meanwhile I have here another impression from the Christmas Market in Luebeck:

 

Ricoh GR1 - Portra 160

Good one, James.  Great nighttime colors in low light from Portra 160

I would like to excuse this posting spree. The weather here currently is not amenable to outdoor photography, thus some scanning backlog is in flavor...

Not excusing needed; it is a bonanza for us!!   The more the merrier so please share away.  The entire series has been very inspiring.  I love the detail and texture that you get from your skies.

[...]  I love the detail and texture that you get from your skies.

 

Since HP5 is so good with greyscales, it only needs an appropriate filter. Red filters are ill-reputed amongst "serious" landscape photographers these days (although A.A. used them liberately in his days). The B+W 090 is a sweet spot for me, being light red yet significantly more intense than a conventional yellow filter. Because of the exquisite MRC coating, you cannot bring it to flare, even with the very suboptimal built-in lenshood of the Summicron V.

I prefer the dramatic rendition of sky achieved by the physical filter very much to the b/w conversion sliders, and even more so to the terribly overused (imho) clarity or structure sliders in digital postprocessing.

The only drawback of the B+W 090 ist that it sometimes renders foliage much too dark, so sometimes a bit of local digital dodging & burning is necessary, whereas generally, I keep postprocessing of my black & white negatives to an absolute minimum (negative conversion; global levels & curves; dust removal; hands off the rest). It currently is very satisfying for me to be on a somewhat minimalistic trip ;)

Kind regards

Mathias
