    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Thanks for input. This is how the scene is. For me the foreground was the intent of the image, but yes there are scenes within scenes. . My monitors are calibrated as well. Desert scenes are highly colorful and never produce the same color pallet in a row and many times the colors are not what people expect they “should” be. These colors are what the scene was at the time.

    This scene was changing rapidly and I have another shot that looks a lot different from this same spot at a slightly different time from this shot during same storm. Which is the one that led to the nighttime lightening storm shots.

    Steve,

    Is the amount of contrast and color shift intentional in this image? The results remind me of when I used Silverfast SW with an Epson 800 Scanner. But I moved to Epson Scan SW per recommendation of several LF members here and my results were much less contrasty and colors more natural looking.

    Also I am curious whether you brought the film plane to a neutral position (maybe with drop bed) l or was the camera back tilted down? I have always found it difficult to get a good horizon line when pointing the camera down. Do you fix that in post when you get linear distortion effects?

    This looks like your 75SW and Velvia 50? I’d that right?

    Really sharp and detailed image.

    The camera was leveled out. I rarely point the camera up or down. There was no tilt, no shift, no rise or fall. This is how the scene looked. When I use my V850 I use Vuescan and create a raw tif with a linear gamma curve. I then use colorneg to convert the image to a positive and I go for a fairly flat image that is as neutral as I can get. From there I use Photoshop and color balance to remove any casts etc. I white balance the image and then adjust from there to my tastes based on he original scene. If anything, the image is a bit too saturated. This was also shot just after the sun set below the horizon behind me. With all that said, I could adjust the image to match someones "sensibilities" if you will of what is correct. But then again, maybe not.

    Another thing I could do is remove some blue to d emphasize that this was shot well into twilight.
