Eoin, I really like this Acros / Rodinal combination. It has wonderful tone and contrast, Does the stand development increase contrast?

Hi, Jo.
This series is with a big lumpy Hasselblad...

This is it - About as subtle as a house brick, as heavy as a house brick, as electronic as a house brick...

Very nice, John. I like the transparency of the water.

I haven't been stand-developing any films lately, John. The Acros was at 13 minutes (normally 13.5), as I wanted to reduce the contrast that I knew would be there in fairly low light. Acros naturally carries very deep blacks, so contrast is always present. Stand-developing it can easily result in halo effects.

Nice one, EoinC. Thanks for the insight. :)

The neat thing was that he wasn't wearing his robe when he spoke with me - He put it on for the photo. He was from Accra, Ghana, and had a theory about how all supermarkets should be free. He showed me where he was from in a well-worn atlas (which was a bit unnecessary, as I've been to Accra, but was a nice touch).
This was the photo I was taking when he confronted me. He was directly to my right, and well out of shot. I'm glad that he did speak to me, though, as our discussion was really good, and I think we both enjoyed each other's company.

:D I just spent half an hour googling the latest leica glass. :paranoid: I appreciate good engineering and full frame sensors and mirrorless have got to be a good thing.

Theres something about the depth of film that I just adore. I did go digital for a while on a lesser Canon digital, maybe a 400D? But never managed to get photos that I really loved.

Hoze - yes I just used the standard software in a completely automatic mode. The scanner came with a slide tray so you loaded em up and it actually picked all the images out of it, rather well.
I havent done any digital manipulation to the images after scanning.

I did try a roll of B&W film once. I seemed to lack the eye for a good B&W shot - my subject choices seemed to lack the contrast that was necessary.

Very nice, Jo.

One of the (many) good things about film is that it usually needs little, if any, post-processing once it's digitised.
B&W is...Fun! Not quite as fast as digital, but there's the hint of the alchemist about it. My 'darkroom' consists of a couple of Patterson tanks and a change bag. It's about 25 minutes from pulling a film out of the camera to having the negative hanging up to dry. The Paterson tanks can do 2x 35mm films, or 1x 120 at a time. It is still a little thrill every time I pull the negative out - It's magic!

By the way, Jo, both of those shots would look great as prints.

I have 2 Leica lenses - a 35mm f/1.4 Summilux FLE, and a 50mm f/2.0 Apo-Summicron, and I luv them big time. The 50mm is perfection to use, but the 35mm gets far more outings This is mainly because the FOV suits me, and it is very 'film-friendly'. Both of them are tiny, and can easily fit in a pocket. In essence, the 50mm remains glued to a digital body, and the 35mm is super-glued to a film body.

Very nice shots Jo. Were these shots taken on "slide" film?

Yep. Kodak 100vs for most of the above water shots, Fiji velvia for many of the below water shots.
