    (No wonder it's my favorite film!)
  2. Love the tone and detail Chris
  3. I agree with Dave.

    There's just something about film...
  4. I agree with the previous posters before me.
    I also like the effect of the grain. Is this a high ISO shot?

    Thanks Dave, Brian and Darrell! Yes this is a high speed film, in fact it's Kodak's High Speed Infrared film. I used a #25 red filter for this shot, and carefully set the focus offset on the lens for IR. I developed it in straight D76 for 10 1.2 minutes at 68F, then printed it with a #2 filter on Ilford's Pearle finish Multigrade photo paper. This is a scan of an 8x10 print.
  6. An exceptional portrait............ an exceptional capture of a moment in a persons life...........

    Simple as that really................... :redface: :redface: :redface:

    It doesn't matter if this was film or otherwise....... (though I KNOW it works better as a result of this and the work you put into processing/printing the image)..........

    Just, simply, an astounding fraction of her life...............

    Thanks for showing us this Chris.... made my day!

  7. Another good shot, Chris. It made me check to see if I had my 3-D glasses on! :wink:
  8. i particularly like the part about printing...wet printing has an appeal,oh, and cool picture
  9. Some pictures seem to tell stories... some pictures seem to beg for many untold stories to be told. This one does both... excellent.
