Salty detail into the blinding sun, but what about that no-salt diet? This is too delicious, and your exotic rendezvous certainly works up an appetite.

That Sun highlight is spectacular, particularly in offsetting the cool tones in the rest of the shot. Very special!

I really like this shot, Steve. The moment, the composition, the light plays, the organic vs inorganic...This is another that would make a great print for the wall.

I find your work very refreshing, Ernest. I like the way you see (and execute). Thank you.

Thanks Eoin. The light that day was really sweet, a photographer's dream.

Phil, 

Here on this forum there are many people who post excellent pictures - I feel like a kid in front of a toyshop window every time I log in. There are fewer people, and you are one of them, who consistently post encouragement and critique and that is very welcoming. Thank you!

Christoph, thank you sincerely. This kind and generous remark has stayed with me - and will stay with me -  and means so much. I really do appreciate it.

With best regards, Phil

Though I quite like the products from the brothers Wright, I am not convinced about the CInestill 50D. For the price per roll I expected a much better quality. Just today I got a roll back from the lab and it has the loathed schmootz on oh so many negatives 😥 Anyway, I try to get the best out of it. In the picture below I cropped about one third - so it comes close to XPan format:

This is a wonderful jazz photo Steve. Really classic.

Very well spotted Keith. I like how the shadows almost creepily reach upwards to grab the figure ;)

I am very impressed with the sheer amount of detail in your GSW panorama series, Wayne.

Another example from the 35mm converted Fuji GSW690III. I think it shows the capabilities well. Porta 400. I would say that the photo, as shown here, represents about 80% of the quality of the actual scan. I cannot remember ever getting this quality result from the XPan..........Before it, the XPan, died.

In the original scan, at 400%, you can almost read the writing on the little utility marker flag located just to the right of the base of the tree.

Very intriguing Rog, to me it looks like a slice of a star's spectrum.

Delightful Adam, you really nailed the exposure on this one.

Looks like he's saying something to you, was it something nice? And what's causing the interesting shadow on the wall?

You made it into a very dramatic image by cropping James. I have also had bad experiences with Cinestill 50D and won't buy it again. I am generally supportive of any effort to keep film alive but I've just seen and experienced too much troubles with Cinestill. Plus, as an aside, I simply cannot understand how they can re-brand with a straight face and sell Kodak Double-X as "BwXX (double-x)". I assume they've got Kodak's permission, though they don't explicitly say it is a Kodak product (only that "it's wonderful sister films" are Kodak Plus-x and "TPX320"). But at 9,99 USD for a roll it's something like three times what it costs if bought as bulk from Kodak. But I digress.

Something about the daisies is very attractive. Maybe it is the juxtaposition of the natural curves of the flowers and the strong lines from the aperture blades...

Regarding Cinestill film, I think I will stay away from the 50D, but now and then use a roll of 800T, as I made better experiences with this emulsion.

No we didn't exchange any words, but I think he was somewhat taken aback having a lens pointed in his general direction. The trouble using an SLR and an 85mm lens is the time taken to refine focus (I can't remember the aperture used, but I remember fiddling to acquire focus as accurately as possible - time enough for the guy to notice me).

The shadows on the building are cast from a tree with Chinese lanterns.

An appealing blend of pastel colours, shapes, movement and light. I imagine it would look good printed very large and hung in a foyer!
