So. I got a Canon EOS 600 for Christmas and have already shot two rolls of film with it. The best thing is that I don't have to lug around two sets of lenses if I want to shoot 35mm film.

Last week I (finally) decided to purchase a dedicated film scanner so I could get decent sized scans, so I splashed 170 on this Plustek 7400, and was very impressed with the size and quality of the scan (64MP at 7200dpi!).

So in addition to cloning the bar at the top (difficult making it look natural), anything else to make a stronger image? The audience at camera club tonight were rather fond of the darkroom print I presented.

I think you've already mentioned the minor niggle (bar along the top). Apart from that, this is a well balanced image, with a wonderful rustic fence winding its way through the frame - brilliant in b&w! Smile

Film is great to use and I do like this shot. It's a great subject and you have a good range of tones. Think you could have made your life easier by composing to avoid including the sky if it is bland. You maybe could have found a nice diagonal composition, with little or no sky at all. Then you could have cloned grass over if you wanted. A yellow or orange filter will make shots more punchy, but it will also increase the exposure time - if you don't currently use a tripod, you might find you need one Sad !

i absolutely love the snaking fence in contrasty light, the picture is all there in the fencing, above that the image has no quality and no interest and its just pulling my eye from the reason you saw the picture in the first place.

if you crop above the fencing and lose the blown sky (which on my screen looks heavily pixelated) and concentrate on where its at, then you are left with a really great image. also the bright area of sand in the bottm left could be cropped away too, leaving just the 2 diagonal bands of fence. then it moves out the snapshot zone and enters a graphic design / pattern abstract sort of image level.

best regards and well seen but look at what interests you and dont feel obliged to take in the whole.

I'm inclined to agree with Phil.
All of the interest is in the central part of the image.
You're already aware that the bar at the top could do with being removed; I think the best thing you can do with the sky would be to remove it at the same time.

I have uploaded another modification where I have simply cropped the shot to remove the sky and a sliver off the left hand edge.

See what you think.
