Good stuff, Lynn.
Wow she's got cool eyes! Did you use a filter?
Very nice, particularly the woman.
Great idea for a diptych, I like this a lot.
I avoided this thread....since I frickin hate Gin. But the nice image made me post.
Thanks, Ed. I think I am finally getting a grasp on the methods and techniques needed get decent tones and details from B&W film. I was surprised at the detail in the photo, considering that it is Tri-X, like the fine hair on her cheek. The Nikkor 105mm has a unique ability to capture huge amounts of detail without ripping the photo apart. I have been shooting my Nikkor 135mm's, f2.0 and f2.8, more lately and the photos are terrible. They are so scathingly sharp, hard, difficult to describe. At the moment, the 105mm and 180mm are two of my favorite telephotos, both have similar look and feel.
Wow, Coogee Legion Ex-Service Club??
I had a friend in Coogee over 35 years ago. She lived right near Coogee beach (not quite Bondi, but nice!) on Beach Street.
Hottest Christmas of my life, about 35 deg. C.!! :smile:
