frustrated by my scan - but hopefully good enough to at least get the idea.

Excellent monochrome work. Love the choice of tones and the superb camera contral evident.

Oh Ron, you are so kind. Thank you so much. I'm so glad this appeals to you because I am really happy with hit myself. It is really nice to have film (in this case impossible film for poloroid) to use for certain things. This was taken with my father's SX-70. It is a delight to use.

I am so impressed that you used a real Polaroid! Where did you find the film? That explains the dreamy look of this shot.

I use Impossible film, it's a company that took over the last poloroid film factory. they refurbished and came up with new - not so highly toxic - chemical formulas so the cameras could continue to be used. they even refurbish cameras and sell them. I've been with them buying there films in progress since almost the start. I actually love their not so perfect earlier attempts, but the now quite good film is wonderful as well. I buy online, but we have a few stores in town that also carry it. It's not cheap, but working with film never was. It certainly makes me think more before I snap.

Like this, like the wonderful Tones, light and soft details

Thank you! One never quite knows how an impossible film will turn out (especially when it's old), so this was a pleasant surprise.

A very thought-provoking image, leading me to wander around the positive and negative space.

Thanks for your comment on my dried Irish Eyes, and I have to agree with you--irises can be hard to appreciate when they are dead...though I HAVE taken some interesting images of them. I haven't processed them, but you know, it's a good challenge: how can you approach a subject that doesn't appeal to you, and make it something that you appreciate after you're done processing? :)

raingirl has replied to Janet Brien
I'm happy it makes you think. Thanks for the comment.

Something drew you to start the photo of the dead iris - you probably just have to find that draw again and try and bring it out in the processing. Or just move on with your life! ha! I can't bring myself to get anywhere near them, they just seem so yucky to me. But I'd lvoe to see if you ever finish one and see if I can find new interest in them.

This shouldn't work in monochrome - but it certainly does!!

I used to take a lot of b&w photos back in the day, but no usually nature, more for portraits. I have always loved Ansel Adams' b&w nature photos, so I was happy that this one turned out.
Thanks so much for your kind words.

Ansel Adams, now you're talking! A true genius and pioneer of photography. Have a good Sunday and a great week!
