A rather embarrassing lighting malfunction. I took this photograph a month ago and they still haven't fixed it. Perhaps they don't know Smile

Watcha Michael,
Excellent night shot and bit of observation, well executed. So, that's how cooltone prints out, cos I int gorra enlarger I've never used the cool and warm papers, everything I do is with POP papers or ordinary RC treated as POP or contacted.
Best
Mick
ps, 'I like how you manage to make photographs look genuinely old. Most examples I see look like modern photographs that try to look old but just don't look right.' : print light tone heavy, a tip from Roger Hicks & Frances Schultz in B&W Photography

A super shot and so well spotted. Perhaps you should present the store with a copy of your photograph. I am sure the sign would be repaired immediately. Very well done. CLIK,
Joe

Excellent spot and take - really amusing Smile You've also coped superbly with the contrasting light between the interior and exterior. All the best. Bruce

Cheers Bruce. Crikey, 20 clicks in one day - that's never happened before Smile Thank you peeps.

Mick, regarding your comments about cool/warm papers - one thing I know is that different monitors can have can have quite a drastic effect on the tones of a b/w photograph. The monitor I currently use has a noticably cooler appearance than my previous one. This is rather frustrating as I can never be certain if people are seeing my photos the same way as I do. The effects of warm/cool papers are pretty subtle, too subtle I suspect, to be accurately conveyed on a monitor. It's annoying but I don't know if there's anything I can do about it.

I really like this shot. Could it do with a bit more space at either side of the sign? Perhaps by changing to landscape? Probably just personal preference...

Funny you should say that, I was going to print this horizontal (it was actually taken in that format) but changed my mind because I thought the extra bits on the sides were unnecassary. Win some........Smile

Thanks Bev. They were kind enough to leave it like this for a month although oddly enough, the day after the photo was posted the sign was repaired Smile

I used to pass an amusement arcade on the way home from work whose broken illuminated sign read 'Amusements'. I never did get around to photographing it and photoshopping to make the 'ts' look dark, too. (Yes, I know yours wasn't 'shopped but we're not all so lucky!)
