An infrared converted shot of Cornwall's finest quoit. I added a very mild sepia tone to recreate what I would have done in the darkroom using Agfa Record Rapid and warm tone developer.

Pete -- composition is very nice but I wonder whether the Levels need to be tweaked. The white point is not really white and by increasing contrast a tad, it would probably lift this image little bit. I think we would probably also distinguish more details in the grass in the f/g.

I left it with this tone as it's how I imagined it when printed on Record Rapid...feel free to tweak though and upload a mod

I don't know anything about IR, yet another thing to learn about, but I do like the results. I have noticed that images that have a lot of texture seem to work really well with it. (If that makes sense)

Much rather the more vibrant upload from previous upload.

Taken a few shots of this one,its a lot smaller than you think .The mine in the backgrounds a hard feature to get in.I normally go for a lower angle and miss out on the mine because of it.

Yes I have lower shots that make the Quoit more dominant but I wanted the mine in. I also have shots with the mine framed inside the Quoit, but the balance of this is better

Thanks Malcolm...Tin is the answer Wink
Great mods G, a touch over sharpened for my liking, but I like what you've done with the contrast as an alternative to my old-school darkroom treatment.

Its always nice walking around this area... although this year I missed out on this one due to heavy rain Sad

Its a good recreation of an older style... and interesting to compare this with the modern high contrast mono images that have become so because of the likes of PS. I was in a gallery recently and saw an exhibition of silver iodide type prints, which looked great, lovely and warm.
