Rocks & Trees

Trees & Rocks

Another image taken with the Ricoh XR-10 and Vivitar 28-70mm lens, using Kodak UltraMax 400 shot at iso 400. The original was rather pale, so with the help of LR6 and On1, the colors were changed to my liking, and the image cropped.

Autumnal Grasses

Autumnal Grasses

A new-to-me film, recommended by one whose photography I admire: Kodak UltraMax 400. Not an expensive film. I shot the roll at the recommended iso, using the automatic exposure element in a Ricoh XR-10 camera, and a Vivitar 28-70mm lens. The guy at the photo lab suggest I shoot all 400 at 320 iso instead – longer exposure, better color. I’ve loaded another roll of the same film, in the same camera, to test it out at a lower iso.

This image was doctored a bit in LR.

Orchid

Orchid

This orchid has been slowly uncurling for the past few weeks. This morning I wandered into the corner of the house where it lives, and was delightfully surprised – it is really lovely and has a sweet, unobnoxious fragrance. Lucky me!

Morning Glory

A couple of things about this photo. 1) It is a seriously intense crop. 2) I enlarged it by 300%. Click on it to see it in all its glory. Whaddya think of the enlargement?

Distractions at the Beach

Distractions at the Beach

This young man was a distraction. Luckily he was distracted. I stood behind him and took two pictures, thinking if he held still long enough, I could make a pano. I was really close to him, and had an 85mm lens, so that would mean moving some distance to get his entire portrait. Fortunately, he stood still, and here is the result.
