Rest in Peace

Seamus, It's an interesting structure. Sort of reminds me of this one in Florida:

[attachment=20517:05_Apr_05_13_Edit.jpg]

Underneath all that foliage are picture windows, etc., in fact a regular art deco living room.

But on my monitor your new photograph looks as if there's been a snowstorm. If there has been then the picture's okay. If not, it's blown out and, again, over-sharpened.

Ooops, I think I'm having technical trouble at the transmitter! It's a scan from a negative, I think possibly Kodak Infrared film. I'll go back to the neg (if I can find it and get back to you.

I like the Florida image - it poses more questions than it answers. What's around the corner, I wonder.

Slan,

Seamus


Edit: I've found the neg - it's Ilford FP4 Plus. I'll rescan it later and see what happens. Fingers crossed.

Seamus, That's at least a lot closer to the ideal. Priceless old building. I always wonder how old... Maybe there are ghosts of Druids hiding back there in the woods.

The old Florida place is from about the twenties or early thirties I'd guess. Most of it is pretty coarse construction, but they built a beautiful living room that could look out on the big lake in front of the place. Then, at some point they abandoned it. Down here in Florida it doesn't take more than a few years for the kind of growth that swallowed the main part of the house. Now it's gone, and a brand new, boring vacation house has been built in its place.

That's more like it.

Russ, I went down to the woods today looking for the ghosts of Druids and got a big surprise when I found this one at Half Moon Bay, Hazelwood, Sligo, Ireland.

Slan,

Seamus

Seamus, A very interesting druid. From the chainsaw cut on his left side I'd guess he's been in a battle. How appropriate for a bird to live in the hair of a wooden druid.

Seamus, Looks as if you got control of the process. This is wonderful stuff. The only nit I'd pick is the rocks in #3 that look too blue to me. I'm sure they're reflecting a blue sky, but maybe not that blue. But -- that's a very small nit. These shots don't show any sign of the over-sharpening and blown-out highlights I saw in some of the earlier stuff. The sharpening -- at least for my monitor -- is perfect, and the subject matter is fascinating.

As usual, Russ, your analysis is invaluable, much appreciated and right on the button.
