Antonio, this is stunning! An amazing knock-your-socks-off photograph. Not only that marvellous and perfectly realized silhouette, but the detail of what is happening in the background - someone in a chair apparently speaking with someone out-of-shot in great light. Just a sensationally realized, evocative and atmospheric slice of life.

 

Thanks a lot!

I honestly did not like the door frame not being centered around the silhouette, but I did not think of it while framing.

Yodica film looks interesting - might try a roll or two when it's back in stock.

These two shots--I call them "Red Letter Drop" and "Purple Plus"--are such strong Mondrian-like compositions that illustrate the benefit of a bias for simplicity. Every detail works: the texture, colors, and details right down to the peeling purple paint. The bright sunlight of Purple Plus provides that sharp shadow contrast giving a kind of three-dimensional kick; it would be interesting see how it would play with shadowless light emphasizing mainly the color values. The plastic flowers are what a novelist would call "a telling detail": a detail that says something about who lives here. The same goes for the wall graffiti in Red Letter Drop. Your trigger finger and selective eye are on target! Can't wait to turn the page.

I only wanted to add that the workflow with Flexcolor will be quite different from other scanning software and that the Flextights are very, well, perceptible; they see literally everything on the film. This is usually good, but it also means that every minuscule speck of dust will be visible. The absence of digital ICE - which makes scanning at max resolution with for instance a Coolscan 9000 a breeze - also makes for very very long dust-spotting sessions of full-resolution Flextight scans. I'm currently editing a photo project I've been working for a while which I shot with my 203FE and while I have scanned all images at full resolution, I have decided to make 50% reductions for the spotting because I won't need the largest resolution for web or even largish prints. On average this reduces dust-spotting time of one image from 15-20 minutes to 2-3 minutes. If I need to print very large I will spend the time then dust-spotting the full-rez files. All that being said, they're amazing scanners. As for why there are so few used, it's because they're made to last. You might find them at the buy and sell sections at for instance fredmiranda, eBay and the like. 

 

Well, I am responsible for my own interpretations!

 

In all my years of scanning, I don't think I've ever scanned at less than the absolute full resolution.   It's probably horribly wasteful, and perhaps it will be finally catching up to me with this larger format, but it is what it is.  I'll have to adapt.  If I start quibbling over the cost of storage space I might as well get out of the game.

 

Wonderful horses Gary.

this is fantastic! (dare I say decisive moment and sharp focus certainly doesn't matter here, in fact the blur adds to the photo)

Thanks. I enjoy hearing from you on all occasions. In truth, I was thinking about you, and your  comments on other photos, as I took my photo walk. The possibilities seem endless. A step to the right or left and a whole new universe opens.

 

Best,

Standing in middle of Bridgeway. A bit nervous. Apologies for finger flare, lower right. I wanted the weed in front of the curb. :)

WTF is this?  One can only wonder.  Which is what makes this great.

Thanks for your perspective, Philip.  It just floors me that such an expensive machine does not come with a dust removal feature.  Did you purchase your X1 new or second hand?

I only wanted to add that the workflow with Flexcolor will be quite different from other scanning software and that the Flextights are very, well, perceptible; they see literally everything on the film. This is usually good, but it also means that every minuscule speck of dust will be visible.

You will now be getting a call from the United States Post Office to begin talks regarding rights to the image for the next Forever stamp. Congratulations. Of course, you will still have to buy your own stamps. No discount.
