By the coast pt. 2

This should my final post for a few days as I don't have any other work that is really edited. I am however expecting another roll of film to be returned this week.

All apart from the final image are taken on:
Bronica ETRSi with a 75mm lens
F/16 or F/22
Fuji Pro160S

Final image:
Mamiya 6MF rangefinder with a 75mm F/3.5 lens
Fuji Pro160S

Somewhere between Port Carlisle and Anthorn.

Bronica ETRSi 75mm Zenza (something)
F/16 or F/22
Fuji Pro160S

I have a feeling people will eventually get bored of looking at 'seascape' photographs, I don't think I'll tire of taking them though. I think I need to work a bit harder on my compositions, so that all of the horizons are at the same height (maybe?).
I also need to try to find a setting when scanning the negatives so that I can get similar results (in the colours).

Easter '09

Bronica ETRSi with 50mm Pe lens(?)
I imagine something like f/2.8 or f/3.5
Fuji Pro160S

Taken some time around last easter when I got lost on what turned out to be a 10 mile round trip.
Since taking this I have made a habbit of getting lost when I go walking, though I have now realised that I take these photographs as some sort of reminder, or marker to remind me for the next time I visit.

Black and White (large format failure)

Wista 45 90(ish?)mm lens
Ilford Delta 100

My 2nd real attempt at photographing during the day using black and white large format film. This was just a test shot to remind myself how to use the combi-plan large format developing tank.

I asked for some advice from the technician who said that I agitate the film too much and that I was going to be using too much chemistry.
(I think I have proven that I shouldn't have listened to him, and that I should have found the instructions on the internet beforehand)

Atleast I know for next time. I am currently trying to make this 'tide mark' a little less noticable using a gradient tool in lightroom that one of my friends told me about.

Black and white

All taken with a Mamiya 6MF with 75mm f/3.5 lens
Mostly using f/16
Ilford Hp5
My first real attempt at taking black and white photos in a while. 
I was looking at debris left behind by the floods (that hit the local area at the end of last year) particuarly at different shapes and textures.
