This photo is from a series from some of my crazy, extreme photo adventures I  had photographing Mountains "Alpinists " and rock climbers. This is Alpes mountain range which is called   "Le Massive du Mont Blanc", Haût Savoir region  In France.  And this place is a White valley ( La Vallee Blanche - Chamonix ) the most beautiful region You must visit. I was very brave enough to carry my Medium format two lenses/ meters/ and a Canon EOS and a 50mm, a lot of films No tripod/ It is crazy when I thi

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

The future is in smartphone ?

In my case I will continue in the film M with optical and mechanical rangefinder
with due respect to people who prefer the electronic viewfinder, the live view, the video on a camera

Thanks Gary for the link

I looked at all the pictures, including those in color.

Digital images are digital, beautiful images but completely synthesized by the camera's computer

In result , It's impeccably sharp images (it's good for some , bad for others) but with "neutral" colors

(characteristics of CMOS sensors)... green is not quite green (as in the film)

 

For me they are "images" nothing more , and I think you have already corrected them.

I look for the "quality" of a photo, in the "artistic" meaning of the term , with a sentimental side that is when

I look at a picture, I must have a good memory and it's nice to watch like music through a vinyl disc and

tube amps.

I hope you will not be angry by what I just said and excuse my frankness !

 

For me for color the film remains the reference. Look at my incense sticks picture posted above and my comment.

For b&w , it's something else and I will speak at another time

Best regards Gary

Another old one, from a few years ago.  I used to like playing in the snow, especially with a camera.  This is a park that was close to our house.  501C, Tri-X.

How can you get reliably spot on sharpness from that great lens w/o a RF mechanism of some sort and only a focus scale on the lens, which is 40mm and not wide enough to have a deep sharp focus range at different apertures???

Is its reliable crazy sharpness limited to really bright light and infinity?

If not and I am spreading disgusting rumors, please do correct the record....

Still loving these salty shots Adam, although (and I don't want to start another "It's not sharp" scrap), to my eyes, it looks a tad soft, especially left side.

Is it me, my monitor, or the scan? Having a dislike for wires (professional aversion even), that was what my eye saw first, and "soft" too.

NOT a criticism, at all, query.
