Old Rig (B&W)

By LexEquine
This is an optimized monochrome, B&W version, of the color image that I posted some time ago, from a capture taken in the Summer of 2010. The capture was made with my venerable Pentax ME Super SLR (Film) with the Asahi Pentax M 50 mm f2.0 prime lens. Depicted is a scene at the end of Church Street in Bristol, Rhode Island, of the old small runabout skiff, "Real McCoy," in the harbor.

Conversion was made with a commercial Konica-Minolta laser scanner at about 3.5 MP.

Yes, I remember the colour version Peter --- thought it was one of Mick's at first sight. Amazing what a difference a good B/W conversion makes. Great result.

Hi Peter, Just looked back through your Pf (12 pages) to find the colour version. Personally I prefer the colour to the B/w shot. Click for both.
