    its been a while had some film sitting around and heres what was on it.

    one is upside down, i think it looks better that way.
    these all had VERY low contrast.
    ALL are 125 PX film (aka plus X) and D76

    Looks like you're missing a lot of contrast.
    It could be one of three things:

    a)time of day - light angle
    b)scanning settings
    c)shooting settings

    The lack of contrast makes all of your photos confusing, and beyond that- there is not a lot of subject matter in the frame.

    Keep shooting film!

    hey at least im posting pics. :coolugh: mostly i dont share.
    by the way these are straight off the scanner. no adjustments besides resize. i suppose i should have used a red filter. my first roll of Plus X, i think it would be a great film for portraits, indoors. for these that i took i would have been better off with PANF (next roll to develop).

    This is your best one posted thus far, the best composition, and the only one with a real subject.. I like this one

    I dunno, but most of these pics look like wall-of-grey.jpg to me. On most, I just can't tell what the picture is supposed to be about, part of that also is the composition and DOF. Like this pic ^^ ...There's just too much going on, it's incredibly busy with details. Details in grayscale get out of hand very quickly.

    I do like the shot Marc posted. That one would benefit greatly from more contrast, imo.

    Upside down pic is kind of interesting in concept, but again, just too damn busy. Might look neat if you cropped it and clipped the fuck outta the whites and blacks.

    they looked less busy before i resized them. especially the upside down one.

    what i needed is to bring a tele (135) with me, i had only a 50mm. so i was kinda limited.


    if someone thinks they can post process any of these ill send them the original TIF

    Dude you don't need a telephoto lens for things that hold still all day. Just walk forward. :p

    Here's one way I might go with something like your tree pic:

    [​IMG]

    All I did was go into levels, clip the black rather brutally and crank up the gamma, but there's way more interest here IMO. You could probably make something nicer by spending more than the 10 seconds I did on this.

    Note: In no way would I call this treatment a finished product, or even necessarily good. (For one thing, I'm not actually good at this, lol.) It's just for illustration.

    thats better. well i needed a tele for other reasons. i didnt want to walk down the dreadfully steep hill in the shoes i had on. there was certainly object of interest if you look at the middle of this image http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e77/erty0/black and whites/Scan-090610-0005.jpg there is some abandoned structure, i wanted to photograph with a tele.
