Any chance you have this one in higher resolution? I love it (and Utah for that matter) and would love to use it as a desktop background. Thanks!

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

^^There appears to only be a white LEO in that picture.



No LEOs were used in this one.

Some beautiful work folks.

I am impressed with the range that digital does for B&W.

Having seen some exquisite solan prints done by the greats and what I see digital has been able to produce is something I never thought possible 45 years ago, when I first cut teeth on B&W photography, processing and printing. Prior to that, it was the old Brownie, and Polaroids.

The rewards of processing and printing were seeing the results as you worked, and offset the limits that were encountered on the budgets most had to work with.

Now the less effort to get a finished image, is contrasted by the detail and tonal ranges.

I would like to see some of these images rendered to high resolution, good tonal pan film like the old 25 ASA Pan-X and then printed on Ilford MG4 or Kodak rag papers.

Some of these rival large format 8x10 and 11x14 view camera work.

When I read 45 years ago in your post, I thought you must be an old fart till I figured out how long ago I was doing B&W developing and printing. It was 45 years ago. Rock concerts in San Francisco. I used Tri-X ASA 400 film boosting the ASA to 1600 in camera and using a special developer to develop the film, then printed as normal. Digital has come a long way, and I shoot with an FX body now. Haven’t done film for a very long time.

Ok ... one that's not my daughter Smile



If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink
