Nice shot Eric V2 is spectacular
Cheers Rod, fair chuffed at developing the film masel.
Yeah thats great Erik , satisfying i wuid imagine
2 nice images Eric, like both but V1 just has it for me. It's great to see I am not alone with developeing film. Try Ilford Delta 100 or Fuji Across, use Ilford Perceptol at 20 deg C 1 to1. 2 off my favorite combinations.
Two great images, especially v1. The developing looks good, I used to use FP4 as a teenager and self develop in the 80's with mixed results. Superb result, first attempt or not. Digital is so immediate and convenient, but there was something exciting about developing a film and waiting to see the results.
Hell of a good result in my opinion, Erik, though I've never attempted that myself. I like both Vs, but much prefer V2 with at least half the sky cropped out, maybe even more than half. Try it.
Thanks for your kind comments, when trying something new its really good to hear its all looking good
Using film is something I'm doing more off and I'm experimenting with a few films and delta is definitely on the list as are different developer combo's so thanks for the suggestions
I agree so much with your comment, I was beginning to find some of my digital processing was getting a bit repetitive and I always wanted to try self developing so finally took the plunge FP4 is still out their doing good and I've got some lined up for later.
I had a quick look at the crop suggestion and it looks good, I'll give it a go and load in the B+W user group sometime this week.
Both images look nice and crisp. Nothing muddy about them as is easy to achieve when developing film. Are they just as scanned?
Next job, buy a BW enlarger and get printing and the real magic starts when you swish the paper in the tray and an image appears.
Hi Ian already ahead of you and picked up most of a darkroom for about £30 as guy was clearing out his equipment (real bargain) so the magic hopefully will begin soon.
Hi Erik.congrats on this photie. two versions very differrent so difficult to compare. V2 spectacular as rod says but for me personally V1 has it. i love the detail the sense of movement and think your compo and treatment is great. Canach you may well know is the Gaelic name for these wee beauties. i love them and have tried to photograph them before a few times but sadly not with the success you have acheived here. i will keep trying though and nick some o your ideas
