Bunbeg hulk

By joolsb  
I've just had 19 of my all-time favourite film images drum-scanned. For those who don't know, drum-scanning is the 'gold standard' when it comes to digitising film. The level of detail and colour-fidelity achievable just can't be beaten.

Anyway, it was a good opportunity to take a second look at the processing of some old favourites, starting with the oldest image that I can still look at with some degree of pride (yes, I cloned out the fallen mast. Naughty, I know... Wink).

For comparison, here's my horribly over-processed previous effort (what was I thinking??)

Much subtler, and sadder, lonelier.

Well, you've got an RC on this version too. We're all learning all the time, or we might as well give up. The drum scan has certainly done the job, plus a rather more restrained bit of processing. I think the missing mast is a great improvement too. A great dawn shot.
