    I never saw such a sharp positive from a color negative btw.
    I take that as a compliment!! It's just a flatbed Epson V700 scan. I use a "Betterscanning" glass plate and holder (not sure if they're still in business) and calibrated some years back to get the best sharpness. I read around a lot about getting the best from a scanner. So, I scan at 6400 dpi and then scale back by a factor of 3 in the raw scan. To be honest I'm not sure of the reasons behind that, some years back that I read about it. I have a good tripod with speared feet and good head to hold the camera - sure that helps immensely.

    Cheers

    That’s a lovely photograph. I love the quality of light.

    "Millennium Dawn"
    Point Arkwright, Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia

    This photo nearly didn't happen. I had been wandering around after taking another photo and, as was my custom, left the camera on the tripod with the lot slung over my shoulder.

    When I saw this image I set everything up then went to open the shutter to compose the image on the ground glass...no cable release (my super-angulon has an old shutter that requires the shutter to be set to B and held open with the cable release).

    I retraced my steps for what must have been about 15 minutes but to no avail. The cable release was nowhere to be seen. Needless to say I was upset but chalked it up to experience and resolved to carry a spare in future.

    I packed up the equipment, folded the tripod, shouldered my backpack, bent over to pick up my jacket, and there it was. The release was in a small crack quite literally under my feet.

    Naturally by now the sun was higher than when I first saw the shot but with the cloud it didn't really matter although the brightness range is quite extreme with 1200% extra exposure required in some parts of the sky.

    Hey Maris, is that really you? From the Sunshine Coast?

    Rob Gray here, I visited you a couple of times in 2001 I think it was. And we took some pics over near your friend's place at Lake Cootharaba.

    It is myself. By coincidence I shot a roll of ACROS at Lake Cootharaba on Friday, developed it yesterday, and sleeved it up this morning: Ultralong exposures, neg densities all over the place, darkroom excitement coming up.
