    I collected a Rollieflex and a Rolliecord many years ago and still have them..
    In excellent condition they demand a high price while I have seen some on Ebay in a very sorry state well battered.
    Just remembered the Rolliekin adapter that allowed one to use 35mm film in a Rollie.

    Looking good so far that no doubt will be worked on further. There seems a few on here that work in this genre all legal and above board.
    Still Life sounds better than Table Top Wink

  • not a film set

    Noted by a Location Spotter for a Film company no doubt.

  • the old shop

    Some care taken in its style when it was built.
    I love old decaying buildings including sheds and this a a gem.
    The winter will have only a marginal effect while brutal demolition for other means would be a sad day, for photographers that is, with others its an eyesore.

  • You Have Been Warned.

    Forty Shillings is 2
    Remarkable good condition if taken when the currency was in circulation although I suspect a bit of eccentricity Wink

    This model was my first SLR bought many moons ago second hand then part exchanged for an LX later.

  • Stallions

    This deserves a big print for the wall.
    Every so often its a shot you know is the one.

  • cobbles

    If I may point out that these are granite sets that are often descibed as "cobbles" which are very different and rare to find.

  • Churnet Way

    Version 1 is by far more dramatic than the colour version that detracts

  • Bullrushes

    The Bulrush, or Reed Mace as is known in the UK, has distinctive shapes. A spot I know has seen them battered over the last few years and this year will be no different. Working in B&W helps to make them dramatic.

  • Foggy Trees at Darley

    One of those B&W images that somehow work better as a print than on a screen.
    • 9 Jan 2014 7:55PM
  • Reflections

    There is no colour to speak of that would lead me to treat this as B&W.
    It has all the elements for an interesting image in monochrome..

  • Sloe years

    Reflect some light on the bottles with a simple reflector.
    Take a viewpoint from the other side.

  • On The Tunnel

    This has grown on me after several views.

    That figure in the foreground grabs your attention as do the other figures.

    There are technical issues that can be rescued to a degree.

    Should the opportunity arise it would be well worth while taking more shots noting how the light is reflecting off the water that can fool even the best of camera meters.

    I have done a mod using some tweaks in LR4 squeezing what detail there is in the background at the top half of the frame.

  • Journal deux

    Cropping the base improved this for me.
    Excellent use of lighting on an ever so simple set up.

  • Old Hall, Dalmally

    Best buiding in Dalamaly, for a camera that is.
    Done it myself but not sure about it being the old Hall as that is up by the rail station built in the same manner but difficult to photograph.
    The "Hall" in question has a history that is somewhat mystical.

    Such a shame that they had to add that hideous fire escape.

  • An Old Shed

    It all looks so strange to be added to a former building that tempts me to describe it as an entrance porch.
    I would have been tempted towards a B&W image although the colour does work.
    Sharpness has suffered for some reason.
    • 2 Jan 2013 5:15PM
  • I stand alone.

    Thank goodness they left it.
    Would make a great print on the wall, large of course.

  • Guess who?

    • 20 Dec 2012 5:27PM
  • Monochrome Defences...

    And how different it would be in colour.
    My inclination would lean towards a darker sky and a trim at the bottom.
    It would be on my list for a big print.

  • Pub Grub

    Very much my kind of subject with or without the homeless figure.
    The number of times I find such buildings that are marked for a visit then find them demolished and gone.

  • Tin Worship Remains

    Quote: Is it for sale

    There lies its mystery between the land and the building. I know the locals who fail to give a definitive answer.

    Quote:what is inside-

    Junk mainly from what I could see through a small hole in one of the glass panes on the other side.
    As a photographer well worth gaining an entry though.

  • Iris

    Very effective where I have a liking for plants that are `past their best`
    Toning is subjective although I err towards the warmer tone for this subject.

    LR4 + Silver Effex is a magic combination.

  • Rusty Roof

    I rather think if you were to dig deeper as to to its original use would reveal that it was or
    they, were cottages.
    The roof may well have been stone slabs that over time collapsed under the weight.
    Cheap and easy tp use corrugated iron saved them for storage by the farmer.

    Quote:The doors being a few feet off the ground

    I am thinking windows Wink

    I spotted some in Glencoe village that as far as I could see are all that remains of its past.
    My curiosity was to see what the other side revealed but failed to find any access.

  • Decay

    I see many of these that strangely have no skull
    • 6 Nov 2012 7:55PM
  • Roof

    Almost surreal.
    The tones and space works well in B&W
    • 4 Nov 2012 12:12PM
  • Corsair

    Certainty the lighting that has scored here.
    Out the many shots with aircraft in the air that I have seen this nails it.
    • 18 Oct 2012 4:33PM
  • Rosy Lee

    An individual shot as part of a series that looks promising.

    Looks authentic with not only the clothing fashion but the paper bag and the old case on the floor but those mugs do speak of modernity Sad

  • Heritage 2

    Quote:Even a few small adjustments to a photo can make such a big difference to the overall effect, its surprising

    If only many would consider that fact. Any adjustment should be in small increments.

    It looks much better now. As for sepia which again cab be heavily overdone with my preference being a warm tone.
    In Elements 8 go to "Enhance" then "adjust color" from the menu where you will be given an option of " Adjust Hue and Saturation" a very useful tool for B&W.
