.....a.k.a. Seen through a pinhole lens

Anyone who insists on wall-to-wall colour and sharpness has probably not got this far ... ...

... ... Holy Island castle seen - dimly - across the beach. The causeway was covered so practically nobody was there on a glorious if windswept afternoon.
Version 2 is V1 posterised, while V3 has a heavy sepia treatment and added grain.

Nikon D70s
Lensbaby Composer, pinhole lens
50 mm-ish, 1/2 second @ f 177-ish, ISO 200.

tres magnifique Bill

I made a travers le sténopé out of my D300 and it just showed up every glitch of dust on the sensor you could ever imagine so I made an HDR out of three of them Wink

It seems strange Bill when we are now paying Thousands of pounds on lenses to have everything pin sharp from our toe nails to breakfast time.

Watcha Bill,
excellent soft focus shot, the old, smear of Vaseline on a UV filterSmile

Pin-hole? whatever they call it on the box, it ain't pin-hole; I think Lensbaby has a lot of work to do to get the pin-hole effect. One of the main qualities of PH is that the tiny apperture gives almost unlimited D of F and pin sharpness at the central area, it then falls off to the edges, just about every PH pic I've seen, and taken, follows that formula, although it ain't carved in stoneSmile

like the tech specs of ish... would work best as a straight mono methinks, but like the high contrast, soft lines, and sweep of comp

I really struggle with French!

f177-ish!!! - think I have a single lens that makes it to f45!
Gives a great aged feel to the shot Bill; I like the soft colours from #1 and the style from the blown highlights, but alos like the slightly darker exposure of #3

Great to see an individual take on a subject Bill.When I had my darkroom,I liked a bit of grain on my prints.I used to push a roll of Delta 3200 to 54,000 !! It was the maximum it would go.After that,the emulsion lifted of the film base.I actually got a call from Ilford's technical department asking how I did it.For any technophobes out there,40 degrees at 30 minutes in Rodinal developer did the trick !! No midtones of course.just captured the shadow detail.The print in a bath in blue toner after that,brought out some highlight detail.The trouble with this digital lark is, it is all too easy !! Lets not forget the ''old ways'' !!
