    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Referring back to the lovely shot by Lassethomas, yes, Porta 400 can respond well to warm settings like that. Ektar is better hue corrected overall, but does have the Achilles heel of cyan contamination of the blues, and of excessive blue response in open shadows. I've posted numerous times how that is best corrected at the time of the shot, rather than entering the bullring with it afterwards using software options. And yes, it can be predictably corrected. I don't do any kind of digital printing - pure optical workflow only - but have probably tamed those Ektar idiosyncrasies better than anyone else, not to perfection by any means (no film is perfect), but significantly. If there are magenta issues, that must be due to something odd about either the processing or scanning step; it isn't native to the film itself - perhaps digital overcompensating with respect to the cyan bias? Yet in this particular instance, Portra would be the preferred product anyway due to its wider exposure range. Really good example.

    Very nice John. Was this taken at the east end perhaps near the Hamptons? Is this Salt Marsh Grass?

    I am in Port Jeff in Oct. Any recommendations for locations like this?

    Lovely

    Did you intend to use the stalk of grass as a means of enhancing the near/far aspect of the image ?

    Thanks Martin. Not really, the stalk was standing there and I liked it so I didn't disturb it.

    First tries with Portra400 after giving up on Ektar100.
    No, I never became friend with Ektar. Didn't like the magenta cast and blue shadows, and the need to nail the exposure almost like slide film. Sort of wanted to like it but never did.

    This is something very different, much more to my taste and more workable. Feels really good.
    Hi!
    Wonderful composition and superb tones !!!

    Cheers
