    A shot taken with an old Nikon FG for a photogaphy class in college - circa 1985. Scanned with an Epson Perfection 2450 Photo from the original negative.


    Got an A- by the way. ;)

    A minus??

    What'd your teacher say "you blew out the sky"? ;)

    Very nice graphic quality. 1985, so probably no computer assistance, or did you? I really like the repeating windows, getting paler in steps.

    Do you like it without the words?

    Can't remember what his comments were...him and I didn't see eye-to-eye anyway. But, isn't that one of the beauties of photography -- people interpret captures in their own way?

    The sky is slightly blown out, but it was an overcast, rainy day and from my recollection, the sky was a very light grey as in the photo.

    I added the text to it later (obviously), but this is not far from my original print in every other way.

    I found the original scan of the negative and redid the shot, slightly larger, without the lettering, a slightly tighter crop, and the highlights and shadows tweaked a bit...
