I dipped into my archives for this week’s photograph. This image is early in a series of photos I took on my first trip along Mantua Creek on the Wenonah Trail. I published five images from that roll of film on Feb. 1 but I didn’t include this one.
Going back for a second look, I prefer this image over a very similar first image from the earlier post. I also processed this image differently using digiKam instead of Picture Window Pro or the Gimp. I resized the image for web use then gave it a selenium toning, tweaked the local contrast and sharpened it using the refocus method. I like the result and think it’s better than last time. I did not crop the image.
The camera was my Nikon F3HP w/ 50mm 2.0 Nikkor H lens loaded with Tri-X B&W film, ISO 1,250 processed in Diafine.
Yep, this was the first frame of my first attempt to capture moving water. I like the results and glad I revisited my archives.
