Weather started to improve once I was nearly back at the car (though by then the direction would have been wrong, the window for the photo I was (and still am) after is only about an hour).

    Thanks. I wish the image quality of the attachment was better but I have no idea what I’m doing yet on that front.

    afxstudio - Yes, its a nice image; but I would have personally cropped a fair amount from the bottom to give a image more linearity, and to emphasize the upper portion - leading the eye to follow the skyline. A lot of the lower content seems redundant to me. I would have preferred to emphasize the jagged edges of the skyline and bold verticals more, yet without surrendering the softer balance of the grassy foreground entirely. That would also increase the sense of scale or monumentality of the background formations. But everything necessary is there if you do choose to print it in an alternative cropped version.

    I might not look Drui[d]ish but that spooky looking block in the foreground seems to be sparking some unfortunate ancestral memories.

    At any rate, a great scene but I find myself fascinated by what's happening at the top of the frame--kind of a cross between John Blakemore and Thomas Joshua Cooper to my eyes.

    Thanks. Yes I also found this effect interesting, but I can't claim it was intentional. The 10 second exposure was simply fortuitous and created just the right degree of motion blur in the foliage. In conjunction with the tonality from the soft light this lends a pleasing fluidity to the upper image elements, which in turn contrast well against the solid three-dimensionality of the lower half.

    My compliments for the great tonal scale, the decision for N+1 and the development of T-Max100 in DD-X! I never succeeded to get good images images with this film, neither in DD-X.

    Thank you. For my workflow I find DD-X to work well with a variety of cubic and T-grain emulsions. A bit pricey though, so I try to wait until I can develop multiple sheets at a time. Pyrocat-HD also works nicely for T-Max films IMO, and is more economical. I would prefer to use Acros, but sadly it is no more in sheet formats so T-Max is the next nearest thing.
