    The differences are small enough that monitor calibration (or lack thereof) interferes with judgement.

    That being said, the deeper red and green shades in the first image are more appealing... on my monitor.

    Precisely neutral color balance is rarely found in nature (nor indoors either). It doesn't have to be an absolute requirement in an image.

    I was looking at some of Mapplethorpe's flowers and felt inspired by the way he used the light and shadows on his backdrops. This isn't even close but it was a fun experiment.

    Calumet 45N, Schneider 210mm f/5.6, Ektar 100.

    Critiques welcomed.

    Looks great! Good to see some Ektar. I will be using some of it as autumn colors develop.

    Ektar is definitely my favorite film.

    Thank you Chassis, Dennis, Neil, Bethe, Ken, Tim and Tim! The version that everyone loves is true to the original transparency.

    I enjoy the flower image. It took me a while to notice the shadow bands on the table. nice color compliments I think, very spring or vacation-coastal. I like the break in texture but not color created by the vase.
    I do not like the vignette / shadow at the upper left.

    do more!

    pawns par Terry B, on ipernity

    Too long without shooting any LF! Went out with my Korona 4x5 and some Bergger 400. I like the faster ISO--it allowed me to go for shallow DoF on this. Shot it slower with a higher f-stop too but I like this version a lot better. The lens is a Fujinon 210mm.

    Souped in HC-110 dil. B. I got the exposure compensation wrong when I shot it, so developed an extra 2 minutes. I like the negs a lot--think I'll add dev time to this film in the future.

    Looks great! I like the contrast and sharp focus, but with shallow DOF. It's working for me. I might have used a tighter crop and a square format. Overall, great image!

    I think it's from the vertical string that holds the slats in place. I'll keep an eye out for that next time.
