Nice composition!

That's what I was thinking!  I really like the perfect alignment of the masts...

These are some polaroid 665 negatives taken on a polaroid 600 SE.  I recently have started to dig through my negs and scan things I haven't been able to get to till now. At least the slow down is good for something...

Thanks Simon...

Yeah, no problem. It was made for the charter airservice company, to be printed as app. 7' x 21', so a good resolution was needed.

Made with a Kodak SLRn and a 50 mm lens, as 7 exposures in portraitformat and stitched together afterwards, followed by some Photoshop layers and masking for colour corrections.

The image just surfaced again today because the company has made a change to the board above their hangars, but it will take several weeks to get the different crafts together at this location (they are flying almost nonstop) so they have asked our retouch-wizard has to make a new board for the hangar in the image.

Nice shot. While you have your retouch-wizard on the job, ask if he can eliminate the chock under the nose wheel of OY-JPJ. It would give the illusion the jet is taxiing. But, then again, if detail in the large print does not show a pilot in the cockpit, maybe that would be bad for business.

Nice!

It even looks as if there is still air in the tires (or maybe the rubber is stiff enough from age to hold up the truck without air.

In the age of full auto this and that, Hi tech this and that, colour balance white balance and all the rest, seeing a Black & White photo is so refreshing.  There is something about B/W that is timeless, you look at a B/W and it doesn't enter your mind when it might have been taken or what with, because all the colour that might give us some idea has been striped out leaving something special in its place that is hard to put into words.

I for one hope in this age of digital capture, display and printing I hope that B/W will continue to be appreciated for the special feeling that it has enjoyed over the decades and not die out due to "but look at the colur depth in the reds on this print" type of thinking.

Thank you again for sharing your shots with us.

David,

Thank You.  

These were shot during a commercial project.  The commerce part, was shot with all kinds of cameras, canons, phase, nikons, depending on the look, lens, amount of light, the setting and god forbid the resolution.

When I had a moment to shoot something only for myself and those moments are usually brief, I grab that little leica m8 that is set on black and white and use a 28mm lens.  I don't think I've taken it off of black and white more than twice and only removed the lens the same.

There is something lovely about the leica. It's a non pixel peeping, non dr comparing, non resolution dependent type of camera.  It's just lens, box and a receptor.  If leica came out with an M9 tomorow with twice the resolution, or twice the anything, I'd just not care one bit.  All of that stuff has nothing to do with this camera or what I use it for.

Personally I've grown somewhat weary of the digital age of new plastic covered cameras, new improvements, 40 ft. file sizes, smooth as silk skin tones, over sharpened, over detailed, over lit images that are thrown at us in a maddening pace.  Actually have you ever tethered the Leica because it's so funny it's great.  The main image is about 3" across and that's it, 3", which is like viewing a polaroid and about as slow.

Don't misunderstand, I'll probably buy another new digital camera someday, the 5dII and probably a RED because of the video capabilities, but if I had my way (and I completely understand the world is not going to bend to my way) I'd just carry two leicas with the same 28mm lens.

Once again, thanks for the compliment.
