    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    I like the clouds and how they ripple. Almost looks like a fresnel lens.
  4. Re: BenQ Monitors: Adobe RGB '98; 10 Bit; 14 Bit LUT

    Yep, I usually get that when working on an image that has a rather uniform sky and is displayed very small (which with my native image size is around 12% of full size) When I zoom in it goes a way. ...

    It shows already enabled for the video drive.
  6. Re: Idea for a thread on sharing image scans

    That is precisely what you would not do. Post the same image up using different digitizing techniques. The idea is regardless of your technique to post up without those details. Have people try to...
  7. Re: Interesting idea

    Exactly. We spend so much time wanting to know how someone did something we lose sight of the art. The beauty of it all, or as has been stated so often, we can't see the forest for the trees.
  8. Re: Interesting idea

    I was thinking about the exact things mentioned here. We get so focused on things like advertised optical capability vs "actual" or usable resolution, y dpi vs x dpi, wet scanned/dry scanned,...
  9. Re: BenQ Monitors: Adobe RGB '98; 10 Bit; 14 Bit LUT

    The only place I could set it is PS and it was already set to 30bit.

  12. Re: BenQ Monitors: Adobe RGB '98; 10 Bit; 14 Bit LUT

    I just did a hardware calibration of my BenQ with their Palette Master software and my i1pro2. 16bit LUT calibration stored in the monitor hardware itself. There is another software from Germany...
  13. Re: On which consumer flatbed scanners can you do wet-mount scanning of 8x10?

    To me, digitizing with a digital camera is not straight forward and requires a lot of extra work. My V850 cost 1000 bucks. Probably get off ebay for much less I bet or used from BH.
  14. Re: On which consumer flatbed scanners can you do wet-mount scanning of 8x10?

    So far I scan my roll film on the Nikon LS4000 Cool scan. I have never scanned it on a flatbed, altho I am will to try that on Epson. I have two sheets of ANR glass I can use.
  15. Re: On which consumer flatbed scanners can you do wet-mount scanning of 8x10?

    Wet mounting is straight fwd, but requires practice. For 4x5 work I get really tight flat film mount with no air bubbles. As pointed out, you can't pull the mylar onto the glass plate, so you gotta...
  16. Re: BenQ Monitors: Adobe RGB '98; 10 Bit; 14 Bit LUT

    Didn't know that I could do that. I need to see if my card allows that. Running a Mac.
  17. Re: BenQ Monitors: Adobe RGB '98; 10 Bit; 14 Bit LUT

    I own 3 BenQ 27 in photographic monitors. Love them! I calibrate with i1pro2 may upgrade to the i1pro3. Haven't done the hardware calibration yet the monitor allows which is supposed to be way...
  18. Re: On which consumer flatbed scanners can you do wet-mount scanning of 8x10?

    I would use the Epson V850 and wet mount. I use that for 4x5 wet mounted with better scan wet mount set up and works great. You can mount to a piece of ANR glass from Better scanning and then our on...
  19. Re: Likely Very Naive Question, sheet film then scan to produce a digital print.

    I have done both digital and film. And prefer film. Even with the hybrid approach, the film offers a very different feel and look that is warm and unique. Digital files, modern digital lenses all...
  20. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    Here is another image from the Prescott Court House. Statue of a Rough Rider. Unveiled in 1907. Tmax100, Green filter, 75mm, lots of rise and fall to keep camera level. About a 3 or 4 minute...

    Nice. Has a serene feel, kinda of moody.
  22. Re: Computer hardware when editing large format files (100MP+)

    I use two computers. MacBookPro with 16gb mem and 1TB hard drive. Process10-20gb size files. My MacPro I have 128gb mem, dual cpu (fastest ones for the Mid 2012, and work on Hard drives 500GB to...
  23. Idea for a thread on sharing image scans

    What if we created a thread where someone would post up there scanned image in final form, but provided zero details about the scan itself. Ie, do not mention scanner type, resolution/dpi, etc. Just...
  24. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    I think you nailed why I like this image. I worked a lot to make sure the sides stayed parallel. Once I get my darkroom built I will give it a whirl. The only downside is there is a lot of...
  25. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    I hadn't thought of that. I will need to revisit this.
  26. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    I will message you when the scanner arrives. Will be a bit though, just moved. Should get by beginning of summer or sooner. Feel free to message me any advice, etc you may want to share. Always...
  27. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    I did not intend my comments at you.

    As for being an engineer and and scientist, when I do something like a test, I test for what I want to examine. All else is noise. In this case, a dirty...
  28. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    I like the smooth water. The detail is quite nice. Not a scene I would shoot. For me it is a bit busy, overall the tone, lighting and contrast are good. Maybe a different crop might work better.
  29. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    I already fluid mount, the learning curve to mount on a drum is not a concern for me. I agree, I never intended to dry mounting scans on the drum scanner to begin with, these were just basic scans...
  30. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    High Key. Prescott Court House, I believe Tmax100, 75mm f/32, Red25A filter about a 1 min exposure. Don't have my notes with me.

  31. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    Just put my deposit on the 8000 Howtek. Should be by beginning of summer it arrives.

    Here is a final comparison.

  33. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    I will give the Epson one advantage, software that uses it can bin the images with a 2x2 which smooths out things, like grain, but at a small expense of sharpness.
  34. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    This is taken from the North Rim (closed for the winter). This is east of Cape Royal on the south side of the road.
  35. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    Everything aside, I know from my own work, that when I scanned at 2400 dpi even 3200 dpi on the Epson, the scans were considerably softer than at 6000 dpi. I choose to scan at 6000 to 6400 then bin...
  36. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    Good question indeed. And I would guess when I start printing above 16 x 20. I plan to make same rather large panos and 32x40 images. Plus, for my astrophotography and astronomy research, the drum...
  37. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    No, but I will ask at what aperture he used. He just mentioned the auto aperture was showing too much grain and as these were just for comparison didn't spend a bunch of time on them to fine tune...
  38. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    Look at the 100% crops. Aside from magenta cast of Epson scanner, the details are softer than the Howtek. To me it is quite obvious. And for scan resolution it is faster to do a 3200dpi scan than a...
  39. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    I have found that many out there have an unrealistic expectation of what a drum scanner can do. One comment I hear often, especially on photography forums/sites other than here is the drum scan...
  40. Re: Comparison of Howtek 8000 Resolve to Epson V850

    Here is a dropbox link to the actual files. Epson files that are at 3200dpi were scanned at 6400dpi and binned to 3200dpi. This was done because you can better detail than if you scanned at 3200dpi....
