Nature In Monochrome371What is Nature in Monochrome about ? Quite simply it's about showing that nature can be photographed in Monochrome (Black and White) and be interesting and creative and fun.  This is a virtual photographic exhibition open for all Monochrome photographers who photograph nature.  The event is hosted by +Richard Pennells  Lets see your creative side :-) _*Here are rules of entry*_ (do read this before entering your photo)  You can submit *1* photograph of nature in black and white  It can be toned but no selective colour  The photograph must be your own photograph not a reshare of another person's photograph Any photograph I feel doesn't fit in with the guidelines will be removed from the gallery (there's more scroll down) Use your imagination and be creative. (whenever you can) Try and make your photograph unique Your nature photographs must not contain any people but animals, wildlife insects etc are okay.  Remember the emphasis is on nature, so your photograph reflect this in content. Buildings and Man-made structures or machinery should not feature heavily in your photographs as the focus should be more on the nature Think of the quality of the photograph you submit, choose wisely because this is your way of showcasing your photography.   _Optional requirements_   I encourage you write a description of your photograph in the comments and the reasons why you chose this particular subject, what interested you about it ?.  Naming the photograph could also be useful in engaging your viewers.  Also the other photographers I am sure would appreciate your words of encouragement and showing an interest so do browse the photographs submitted :-) and comment on their works By commenting on the photographers works you will motivate them.  Many of them put in a load of effort  Oh and try and submit what you think is your best work as you have a single entry The end time of the event is 23.00 hours on the calendar day I have entered, so  your entries must be submitted before then. Thanks :-)Nature In Monochrome2012-12-01 00:00:0093  
Peter From81,453Time for the (shorter) November challenge... Your task is to upload a creative self portrait to the event.  *Rules: only ONE picture (must be taken by you or by using a self-timer) or you will be removed from the event guest list. Please add a few lines about your photo as well, it's always nice.* The contest ends on November 30, 1 PM CET. Winners will be announced in my feed as soon as possible after the event has closed. Good luck!November Challenge –– Creative Self Portrait –– Please Reshare2012-11-14 19:00:00462  
Gorka Ortiz69,295I'd like to invite you all to this brand new Photography Contest. The rules are simple, you are kindly suggested to upload up to 3 pictures of your own. The pictures must show yourself in a reflection. No matter whether your reflection is shown through a mirror, a window, some water on the road or any surface that can reflect yourself. There is no need to be recognized in your picture, you can reflect any part of your body. Try to find funny surfaces or elements where you can be reflected and just have fun taking part! ;-) Who will be the winners? Ok, trying to be fair no matter how many followers, plusses or shares you have and also taking into account your kind suggestions,  I have decided to invite 2 or 3 photographers from my circles who I think they produce quality pictures to help me judge the best works. The contest will end the 4th of November this year 2012. I will create a circle of winners with the 10 best photographers in this contest and I will share it in my stream. (Sorry, I know is not much but is better than nothing I guess and there's nothing else I can offer! ;-)  ). Of course I am opened to any suggestion from you all to make the contest as fair as possible. ;-) Finally, the most important thing... have fun and enjoy taking your pictures and sharing them with us! ;-) Cheers!Photography Contest - My Reflection - By Gorka Ortiz.2012-10-04 19:00:00132  
Steve Johnson34,031... At least for this event. The idea here is a simple one; Rules serve a useful purpose but they should be questioned, broken and ignored on occasion. Post photographs that break at least one photography rule (maximum of 3 photograhs) and note which rule they break in the comments.  Here are some example rules that can be laid waste to: Composition The horizon a third from top or bottom Left/right mirror symmetry is to be avoided The odd number rule Rule of thirds Technical Use of on camera or undiffused flash Wideangle for portraits (fortunately this one is becoming a thing of the past) Editing Oversharpening Over-saturating (Just about over-anything really).  Other Shooting down at kids, pets or flowers. These are just a few examples off the top of my head -there are many, many more. If you can think of others please add them in the comments. One useful rule: This is all for fun so don't over think it :)Rules are for Fools2012-09-24 07:00:0034

Back on January 31, I shot some Ilford Pan F with my Mamiya 645 and a 45 mm lens at Valley Forge National Park. I also shot some digital that day, which was posted elsewhere on Google+.

 I finally got around to having Ilford process the film and I downloaded their high resolution scans. At first glance I was not real happy with the scans' tonality, so this evening I cranked up my Epson Perfection V500 and re-scanned some of the images using Vuescan software. This was an educational experience.

In short, Ilford's scans are dramatically sharper than the Epson scans, and it was not too difficult to handle the tonality issues in Photoshop.

The Epson scan (3200 dpi) was roughly the same resolution as Epson's. It may be that a different film carrier might have made a difference by holding the film flatter and/or at a different height. Your mileage may vary.

Better late than never. They are ringing a small replica of the Liberty Bell on Penn Square in Reading, PA, on July 4, 1976. I was there instead of at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, because then Mayor Frank Rizzo warned everyone that there might be terrorist attacks there that day.

Maybe I'm just being grumpy today. It just seems to me that lately there have been a lot of images shown here and elsewhere that do not provide enough context to for me to understand why someone thought their photograph was worthy of other peoples' attention. It would be nice to have some idea when and where the photographer was, what the occasion was, and what made it special. A photograph of a man in drag, for instance, has a different meaning at a gay pride event than the Philadelphia Mummers parade. Someone once said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but only if you say those thousand words. I'm not asking for that much.

I plan to be at the Goggleworks exhibition on Saturday, May 2, from 1 PM to 4 PM. 

All the prints in the exhibition are on sale for $300.00 each, but if you bring a printout from Google+ of the picture you want I will take an extra $50.00 off.

Goggleworks is just on the other side of the Penn Street Viaduct from Route 422. (I grew up 10 minutes from there, but I really do not know why they call it a viaduct instead of a bridge. All that comes to mind is an old Marx Brothers joke.) There is plenty of parking across the street.

Most everything in the exhibition has been posted on Google+ at least once. Not everything posted on Google+ can make it into the show, because the available wall space will only hold 24 prints.

I did new scans (4,000 dpi, Nikon Super Coolscan 4000ED, Vuescan software) from the original negatives for the ones that made it into the show. The negative of the Lincoln Memorial shot was badly damaged that I ended up scanning an old silver print. I needed to do extensive retouching in Photoshop to remove 45 year old dust scratches, and mold. I also used Topaz Adjust, BW Effects, Clarity, and Remask filters.The images were output on a Canon Pixma Pro-10 printer. The images are 10"x15" on 13"x19" Canon Professional Semi-Glossy paper.

If I do say so myself, these prints look better than the silver prints I made back in the day. Most of them look good on screen, but not as... more »

Many of these will be in the exhibit, but some will not due to space limitations. These images were done a while ago. The prints in the show are all from new scans of the original 35 mm Tri-X negatives done at the highest resolution possible on my Nikon Coolscan IVED scanner. After 45 years, they all had minor scratches and some mold. Each one required significant retouching in Photoshop with the help of Topaz Adjust, Clarity, BW Effects, and Remask filters.

Photo Review magazine finally got around to posting the web galleries for their 2014 competition. It took a while because they were changing their website to a new architecture. My photograph, Bibles and Beer, is on this page. This was shot from the Penn Street Viaduct in Reading in the mid-70s, and none of these buildings are there anymore.

Back on January 31, I shot some Ilford Pan F with my Mamiya 645 and a 45 mm lens at Valley Forge National Park. I also shot some digital that day, which was posted elsewhere on Google+.

 I finally got around to having Ilford process the film and I downloaded their high resolution scans. At first glance I was not real happy with the scans' tonality, so this evening I cranked up my Epson Perfection V500 and re-scanned some of the images using Vuescan software. This was an educational experience.

In short, Ilford's scans are dramatically sharper than the Epson scans, and it was not too difficult to handle the tonality issues in Photoshop.

The Epson scan (3200 dpi) was roughly the same resolution as Epson's. It may be that a different film carrier might have made a difference by holding the film flatter and/or at a different height. Your mileage may vary.

Image 1: Ilford's scan, full frame. I made some exposure adjustments using the Topaz Adjust filter.

Image 2: The same Ilford scan, but cropped dramatically. In addition to adjusting the exposure, I used the Topaz Detail filter to bring out more texture in the masonry.

Image 3: Epson scan, cropped dramatically. I used the same two Topaz filters. Using Vuescan, I did a 4X multi-scan, which is the same thing I do with my Nikon 35mm scanner. On the Nikon, this does not materially affect sharpness, and it helps retain detail in contrasty lighting circumstances like this one. I was really surprised that this image came out so soft that I was afraid the Epson was not able to properly register all four scans. 

Image 4: Epson scan, cropped dramatically, same filters as above. So, being worried about the 4X scan, I did it again with a single scan. A bit better, but still nowhere close to the Epson. ___

The Perkiomen Creek is about a third of a mile down the path, which was cut in when they installed our development's sewers. People go back there all the time to fish, drink beer, or just get away from it all. Before Montgomery County (PA) put up the gate and it was overgrown, people would drive their cars in, get stuck, and have to be towed out.
