I keep coming back to this one because of the sheer drama. Such a terrific landscape photo.

This is excellent Jörg. Looks like there was a fantastic sunset that evening.

Leica R4 - Elmarit-R 2,8/28 - Portra 400

Wow, in addition to being two very nice landscape images, I'm impressed by the level of detail you have achieved here in these images. How I miss Acros...

Two more photos on the Marlborough Downs. (1) Beech copse and byway. Hard to believe this was once the main route between London and Bristol!  (2) Letterbox crop of view across Manton Down.  Both M7, 50mm C-Sonnar, Acros100, Rodinal.

Speaking of films that have been lost, and found again, here's an homage to transparency film. Velvia 100 shot on a print of a photo which I shot on the old Ektachrome 200 some 15 years ago.

Possibly, and they too are in awe of the fedora.

Yeah, I guess that could be the case - or it could be my clean close shave :)

Wow, back-lit brilliance, Rog.  That is some killer red.

At least they seem to be enjoying the experience (of being waylaid by a man in a fedora...). ;)  

Yes I don't want to stereotype bu think I Asians are particularly jovial in the snow :)

Wow, what a stunner, Phil.  Something tells me that we are really missing out without that old version of portra 160

Here's one from last Thursday evening.  I have had this particular scene VISUALIZED for quite some time and have been meaning shoot it before the clocks (and thus evening light) changed.  

I have a photograph of this scene that I am really happy with at sunset with a much wider 90mm lens.  But I wanted to get a little closer so that the two bridges were more prominent and like bookends around the lovely skyline of Dumbo, Brooklyn.  I wanted to capture this scene just as the magic hour set in when the lights of the bridges turned and when the sky was dark enough to hold the color saturation in the sky as well as the water.  I really like how the Ektar captures this magic hour blue, particularly juxtaposed against the strong yellows of the artificial lights.  

I got a bonus with the trails of a boat's lights running across the frame.  With my ~3 minute exposure I had thought that they wouldn't show.  But I like that they did.  

One interesting post script to my story is that I accidentally dropped this roll of film on the ground on my way back to my car and didn't realize that I did so until I got home.  It was a late Thursday evening and I really almost jumped out of my window from frustration.  And after a half hour or so of my brain swelling at the thought of missing out and shooting a blank on that great scene, I schlepped back to my car and drove back to the spot under the FDR bridge where I took the photo and searched around with a flashlight and finally found the roll on the side of the road (see pic below).  I nearly cried with joy :)

Beautiful shot, Adam! Very lucky that you could find the roll!

Ansel, er I mean Adam (got confused because of the visualization), this scene of Dumbo with the two bridges is just brilliant - it ups the ante even for you, which is saying a lot. Absolutely superb and I can only imagine your HORROR when you realized that roll hadn't accompanied you home and that JOY when you found it some time later. Remind me to tell you one day about the time I left my whole camera bag (full of gear) in a national park sometime! Back to your scene - the American flag on the right hand bridge is the icing on the delicious cake.

Rog, I feel you have entered ever new territory with these latest three assemblages. I am particularly taken with "Gray Mean" and its trompe-l'œil virtuosity. Brilliant work.

Apostolos, Keith, Philip, Marc - everyone, I don't want to leave anyone out - the quality of work just keeps getting better and better. Thank you all, it makes visiting here a "must" every day.

Wow man, stop! You're giving me vertigo. The shadow play here is truly terrific and extremely effective, Rog, and I keep wondering what lies beneath the murky darkness down below. A clown perhaps?
