Very lovely. I've seen similar shot elsewhere, but your colors are outstanding!

Legendary image of a classic place. You're are handling the negative film conversions extremely well. One of your best!

Ps. Did you keep notes on your metering for this image? I'd be very interested in how much range you got out of Ektar.

While scanning color neg, I set the levels independently for each channel rather than using any profiles. I've done all my color neg scanning with the default Epson software. It takes a bit of fiddling, but I do like the tonality much better than slide film. I shot this same scene on slide film, and the shadows in the foreground got a bit too dark, but it would still be workable.

There wasn't much tonal range for this shot. With exception of the extreme shadows deep within the cascade, everything was well within range of even slide film. A cliff behind me and to the left was illuminated by direct light, and created some wonderful reflected light. I believe I used the sandy bank with the shrubs as my neutral tone for spot metering. The leaves on the tree where somewhere around +1, and I know the deepest shadows in the foreground falls was around -4. I have tonality within those shadows if I wish to show it -- they're not entirely black.

This is an absloutely lovely photo, well worth your pushing the limits. It shows that there is nothing like large format. And Kodak Ektar 100 is a wonderful film--very fine grained for outstanding rendering of detail. It used to be my standard for color when I was shooting Medium Format.

Great photograph! It would be great to see shot done with the best of digital either Nikon or canon of same scene shot at nearly same time. I guess a scanned neg is partially digital anyway, kinda taking best of both worlds.

Film so excites still, what a journey and reward...great image Ben
There is a delicate, fine look to film and your composition and exposure brings that out beautifully.
Carrying LF gear around must be rough, can't imagine the effort.
Well captured Sir...

Gorgeous photograph.

Which 8x10? Hope it wasn't one of those old Calumet 18 pound green monsters. : - )

Dan,

I switched to LF back in late 2008 because I just wasn't satisfied with the image quality from digital. I felt that if I was spending all this time to go on photo trips, I might as well shoot it on film since it's not that much more difficult, and now my images won't be reliant on the latest technology. After working with LF for 4 years now, I've learned that it's more than just the quality --- these cameras require a different way of working that has made me much more disciplined, and has allowed me to get

Ben,

What do you use to scan your images?

Thanks,
Don

Ben, I always look forward to your posts. This image does not disappoint. Excellent in everyday. Love to see this in print somewhere around 60".
