I always want to photograph this section of a trail in my neighborhood. I think this one finally captures it . . .
Looking down the hill I just climbed up. Sometimes what you see daily surprises you by its beauty. Early morning is the most exciting time of day as everything is fresh and fine!
Here, Nikon FM2N, Lomo 100 film, Elicar 55mm f2.8 Macro; post in LR 6.5 and On1.
Hmmm. The images I get back from the photo lab are grungy. They arrive grungy. Using the Epson V600, I find crud everywhere.
With this picture, I moved it around on the scanner to decide if it was the neg or the scanner, and the neg won.
I cleaned the image with PEC-12, and the crud disappeared – a bit.
Then different settings in Epson Scan. Final settings which produced acceptable results were 2400 dpi, 48 bit color, digital ice, and medium unsharp mask. Final clean up in On1 Photo 10 and LR. Film was Kodak Ektar 100.
I haven’t been out for a hike in Wildwood of late – and in a hurry to do while the spring blooms last!
When I went out the other evening for a hike, I took a different trail. As the sun was setting, I looked forward, and backward, to see how the sunlight was changing the scene. While I didn’t get too far, I did get some cool pictures!
Last night I took the Nikon Df and the Tokina 17mm f3.5 ATX Pro out at sunset. Little did I know it was a super moon last night! What a sight to see as it come over the hilltops.
This picture was taken as the sun was going down. In the picture, the sun is to your right, and you are looking south. I think this picture caught the soft glow of the light very nicely.
