Creek, marsh, lake, river, ocean show what youve come across at waters edge.

Its the transition water to land that produces so much fun drama for this photographer :rolleyes: .

Id enjoy seeing your favorite examples.

Along coastal Washington, I find a lot of weird stuff arriving on the tide. Not all of its worth a sheet of film last week, I picked up a rusty soda can (I think) with Japanese writing. But so much of what I discover is. And of course the tide tosses-up new subjects every day. Make that twice a day.

This gigantic trunk floated out of the nearby Olympic rain forest & crashed here where the sun bleaches it against coffee-colored sands. Despite the difficult mid-day contrast and simple composition, I thought the primitive beat-up shape was still worth a shot. Looks like a dinosaurs thigh bone. The left side is 7 or 8 feet tall! Wish there was something better for scale than my footprints passing by in the foreground.

A month later the log was gone. It will return some stormy day.

Beautiful photo, Jim. I like the effect of the Cooke lens. It has a nice tone and texture. What film did you use?

Looks like Reno had a little snow although I don't see any traces of it in the trees.

Was camped at Horsetooth Reservoir while attending the Foto3 last June. I looked out the window of my camper trailer one morning to see this light from the predawn. The sun was right behind the ridge to the left of the notch.

I jumped out of the trailer, grabbed my Super Graphic, tripod, and a couple of film holders out of my car. I had time to make two exposures before the sun came over the ridge. That changed everything...

A rather poignant picture by the water's edge--taken on the morning that the dam in the background (just to the right of the small brick powerhouse, partly covered in dirt) was being demolished and removed. The morning of the execution, as it were, the tools of the executioner poised at the left edge of the picture, while the foreground features remains of the older, 19th century dam that will remain in the restored stream channel.

I haven't shot in anything in too dang long, but I managed to squeeze one in. Not exactly a new shot for me, but it was after work, the light was almost gone and I was inadequately dressed and freezing cold. If nothing else it gave me a chance to dust off the 'ol bottles of chemicals. One of these days I will have to re-figure out the math for mixing up that Pyrocat stuff, I keep going back to the same old tired jug of ID-11.

Ottsville Creek PA, by Michael and Paula's home/studio, taken with a Wehman 8x10 on Astia 100F using a Fuji A 240mm, shot at f/32, 15 second exposure, a little too long to hold the highlights but a shorter exposure would have lost the detail on the shadowed side of the creek. Still learning how to handle these little problems, doubt I'll ever finish learning. Maybe shooting with color negative film could have handled the dynamic range better, but I still prefer transparencies (both for their look and easier scanning, at least for me). Suggestions (constructive or otherwise) welcomed.

Your tranquil Oregon scene reminded me of this one up the beach in Washington, painted in high-noon contrast.

I tried to find log-shapes to echo the distant rocks: in this case, the bright logs triangular tip (on left) points to the triangular sea stack; and the curvy log (high on right) mimics the black rock but this may not be too apparent in such a busy foreground.

A yellow filter helped darken the hazy-bright blue sky :cool: . And my 240mm lens was so close to the logs, I had to use f/32 and generous front-forward tilt to achieve focus, near and far.

I think Paula is right, but my previous crop is not. Two alternative attempts. Critiques eagerly sought, maybe PM for the really humiliating? Original again for comparison.

As soon as I saw that first photo I knew I'd seen that before. I do some kayaking, and I thought I'd seen that scene in a guidebook. I thought it was in Idaho, but I can't find the photo. However, a check of my Idaho guidebook makes me think it is the remains of Sunbeam Dam, on the Salmon. Is it?

Gregg,
Yes, that's Sunbeam dam on a popular whitewater stretch of the upper main Salmon River. Boaters only run the dam in high water, which usually peaks the second or third week of June. I saw some kayakers put on Camas Creek to access the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, in the Frank Church Wilderness, last week. Absolutely insane, it drops 1400 feet in about 11 miles and makes the North Fork of the Payette river look like a beginners creek!

Actually a very good question although veiled in jest. I did this scene with a Pinkham and it just didn't work for me. I'll include it anyways.

Yes Jim, it's strange, but the sharp image from you-unlike-you is better than the second one. Maybe because the hard rocks don't lend themselves easily to the soft rendering... (I bet you can show me otherwise, but not here with this shot :) ).

And I was so stunned by the sharp shot that I had to look several times who the author is...

Plenty of great inspiration for me here. My first post of a photo. Made with ERA 100 film, Fotoman 45PS with 90mm lens. I had carried my tripod down to the rocks, then discovered I'd left the camera mounting plate back at the accommodation. So this was shot hand-held, braced, at 1/15 and f/32.

As my first post of an image on this forum, and in celebration of making the first scan from my new Epson V750, here is Espada Aqueduct, Stream and Algae.

This is the creek under the Espada Aqueduct (ca. 1731), which carries the Espada Acequia to its mission compound from further upstream along the San Antonio River of which this creek is a tributary. It's an old image, made in 1993 on 4x5 FP4, using an 8-1/2" Ilex Paragon on a Calumet 45nx, 8 seconds at f/32.

To say that I'm tickled with the results from the Epson would be an understatement. I scanned in 16-bit grayscale at 2400 spi, and used a radius under 1 pixel for basic corrective sharpening. I was expecting much less.

[QUOTE=Bryan Lemasters;482576]Well, if I have figured out how to post a large image you should see:

Upper reaches of the Elk River, West Virginia

Lovely. Shots like these make me yearn for a panoramic LF camera.

Thanks, Sly. Actually, it's pretty easy if you already have a 4x5. I have seen several posters on this forum that use the Dayi 6x12 or 6x17 panoramic backs on 4x5 cameras. I think that there are focal length limitations with the 6x17 back.

Not really even vaguely approaching the quality of the other images in this thread, but I have little to no shame so will post anyway. Water is just over to the left a little bit beyond the edge. Canham 8x10, Provia 100F converted to B&W in PS raw, Cooke XVa, f/64 for a little while. Actual true B&W film shot at the same time pending development by Dr5, so this will have to do for now. Color added little post scanning other than a funky magenta cast.

That image is lovely--I must try this approach out someday.

Maybe you explained this elsewhere, but I'm trying to understand how you got f/22 and a 15-minute exposure on a sunny mid-day. I don't have a feel for the reciprocity failure of Tmax, but I'm figuring you needed a least a dozen stops of neutral density, or some special development technique that reduced the film speed to ISO 0.03.

VictoriaPerelet
26-Jul-2009, 20:36
Sorry, here's more tech info ...

In front of the lens - Schneider #4b center filter (2 stops) without it falloff on 72mm is rather bad. Cokin X-Pro 130mm x121 ND soft grad for 1st 5mins of exposure (-2 stops on the sky).

Behind the lens in Xenophone holder - 2 4x4" gel filters - Kodak #96 (ND 3.0 - 10 stops!) and Kodak #21 Orange (2 stops).

Initial exposure set with DSLR + reciprocity calculation, then couple of polaroids.

http://victoriasphoto.com/Notes/long_exposure/Bicycle_15mins_pol.jpg

Having ND grad all the time produced unreal sky - that's why I used it only for 1/3 of the time.

What else do you do on empty beach during hot day:)

PS. I did few more other locations using "STINKY" color process that I'm experimenting with (see portraits) but those still need to be developed, if something will turn out I'll post.

Here are couple of field taken "alt" vacation pics:) - few people asked me if it works in the field - somehow. Doing that in studio is much easier. Anyway, here's color neg:

F2, 72mm SA XL, F22, ~4mins, sunset, ISO 100
http://victoriasphoto.com/Notes/Alt/Color_negs_1_2.jpg

And here's finiky B/W positive, those are hard in the field. I'm getting some Stannous Chloride to see if it will help to harden emulsion. Quality is pretty laughable even by wet plate standards, but it yields ISO 800 which is pretty much unheard on 4x5's:

F2, 72mm SA XL, F22, ~10sec, sunset, ISO 800:
http://victoriasphoto.com/Notes/Alt/Bw_1.jpg

I'll experiment more on models in studio to fine tune process :eek:

PS. Do not know if those belong to ALT or water edge topic. Cause there's no ALT name for that I know, I'll post them here.

I'm not much on color but this shot works quite well in color:) let me guess, 1/4 sec. ? no polarizer?

Preston
30-Jul-2009, 07:39
Thanks for your nice comment, Steve.

According to my records, the exposure time was 2 seconds.

What I found interesting is that these red stones, which are scattered along the creek near the Aspen Campground, are granite. I believe the color comes from some type of mineral stain, but don't know for certain. I have seen granite that is very pink in color, but not any so red.

I'll say "Yes!" too. I like all the triangles at bottom (ice, soil, grass) that mirror the triangles of the mountain. Like a reflection. And the curves & swirls in the middle provide a pleasing contrast.
