I'll have to see if I can find a good shot of a prairie schooner.


That could be the genesis of an entirely new thread: Prairie.

I'm serious: many pictures of prairies are quite interesting, especially for those of us who have never driven through nor stood upon one.

Both from Derwentwater, but different times, clearly

The 8/500mm Cat this afternoon. Cold, windy and getting wet.

1/1000 sec, ISO 1000. D700.

Still don't think digital capture makes much out of black/white; far prefer conversions from Kodachrome.

Rob, don't know what you're using for your conversions, but if you have a late version of Photoshop or Lightroom, the Nik (Google) Sliver Efex Pro plugin does a beautiful job. I have a bunch of sliver on my walls from back in the days, but I can at least equal them and perhaps beat them by using Silver Efex and printing on an Epson 3880 with its built-in Advanced B&W mode. Wish you could see the print from the pic I posted in the "Gone" thread.

Old PS6, Russ, but that's also used on the Kodachrome conversions too, so the same PS being common to both, I take it that the failure comes from the digital camera capture, not the work after that.

Printers apart, the relatively poor quality is visible on the monitor; it's an emptiness of tonality, like bad four-colour litho could be in the day.

My late wife on the afterdeck of our friend's 25m Italian boat in Spain.

We were on the return leg of a cruise from Palma de Mallorca-Gibraltar-Palma de Mallorca via several mainland ports and also Ibiza.

None of us knew that a dozen years later one would be dead and the rest of us have our lives and loves in tatters too.

Carpe diem.

Kodachrome 64 Pro. Nikon F or F2 and probably a 2.8/35mm Nikkor.

Not exactly a luxury yacht but still a boat!

Does this count?

Also, why can't I see any of Rob's photos on this thread?

Brian,

The simple answer is that they have been removed; some had copyright meta and some, I think, not.

I don't like leaving stuff up too long, and if I remember (always an increasing problem), I scrub out. Once a page has fallen behind a bit, I don't think anyone has the patience to scroll backwards, and the point of being present becomes lost.

Rob C

P.S. Where was your boat pic shot?

This makes me sad; shot for the sales brochure for this boat, the slightly longer boat after the Italian power yacht shown earlier. It was bought to replace the power one and allow long-distance cruising to the Amazon basin; in the event, ill health and death killed the owner's dream and the widow's own fading stamina forced sale.

Either Kodachrome 64 or Velvia 50, but I scanned this quite a while ago... Nikon with either 35mm or 24mm Nikkor. Location: off Palma de Mallorca.

I see; I guess I started reading the thread too late, then.

Oops! Too early in the morning for my reading comprehension, apparently! It was in Taormina, Sicily.

Never been there, but my mother used to go, and took my girl cousin there once; enjoyed it a lot.

I would have guessed Malta because the boats there get painted too; here in Mallorca it's mostly just white. Can't remember about the Spanish mainland, but Portugal did colours too.

I like the shot.

I was there for a couple of days, tagging along when my wife went to a conference. It was quite pleasant, although seemed a bit resortish for my tastes.

Thanks! It was kind of striking to me, because the beach where I took it was right behind a very posh hotel, and mostly covered with luxury (boats included). But then there was this.
