Hi all

this photograph is 13 years old: it was made with a Flat Field Camera F = 760mm f / 4 with Ektachrome E200 (120) to its nominal sensitivity.
Exposed for 90 minutes!

A truly incredible photograph Danilo. Apart from its stunning beauty, emphasizes the dynamic range of film very nicely. Very deep without blown highlights.

Top marks!

Thank you Danilo and Merry Christmas to you as well. This is a stunning frame and it may be 13 years old, but it still kicks butt over most dslr images I've seen. I still wonder what kind of films we could be using if the manufacturers had kept improving and bring out new films?

Are you rescanning the old frames with new scanners? Might be a lot more detail there.
