    OK, Dee…

    This is one of mine (from a college project on a related topic):

    For Dennis:  Clocaenog Forest; scanned negative;
    Rolleiflex K4A 75mm f/3.5 Tessar
    Tri-X ISO 400 (Rodinal 1+60 15min 20°C).
    Can’t recall aperture & shutter speed – probably f/8 @ 1/125s 😉

    Here’s a link to one by Fay Godwin and another to one by David Hurn.  And Martin Parr has a series on post boxes in the Scottish Highlands.

    Of course, these are all to do with signs of human presence in the landscape; but there are all sorts of other possible interpretations: urban graffiti; footprints in the flowerbed; Hadrian’s wall; etc…

    Hope this helps.

    I retract my request for more info’ after reading what Dee  had to say about the images being edited and altered with software plus it’s clearly not possible with composites.

    Good move, Dennis – I was a bit worried that Dee would be taking several pages of the Forum to explain the extravagances of her image production! 😉

    More seriously, if you  – or any of us – would like more information about the techniques people have used, we have only to ask: I’m sure everyone will be willing to give more details if we would like them.

    Oi Mac ……. I think that is what called ‘the pot calling the kettle black! 🙂   I heard they have replaced the dictionary definition of ‘Verbose’ with your picture!!!!!!  😉

    Seriously though, it does make sense to realise these days that even basic post processing of brightening, tweaking shadows,  highlights and contrast etc make a huge difference and the settings used in camera may not have exactly worked brilliantly or created the finished image.  So while I will try to add data I think we should also realise its limitations in guiding us to create a similar image unless post processing info is included.

    However if an image hasn’t been tweaked …. it would be really good to know.  Personally,  I’ll be shouting it from the roof tops!  🙂

    My image hasn”t been tweaked–but it could do with some.

    I said to my friend -Iwas rotten with money–He said –youre rotten without it.  ( the amber glow is from the candle in the cellar where I sit counting  it.)

    😆 Ken! Does this mean it’s your round?

    Actually a very nice close up shot … and where there is money …. there will always be signs of man.

    These are giving me ideas on what to look for Mac. Love the wrecked shed,the riot of colour on the grave continues the human touch. Therefore the connection between the living and the dead continues.
