    Playing with the tides.

    Couple more scans from today. These were taken at the beach while the tide was coming or going. The one of the incoming wave was the Nikkormat EL with Plus-X and the other is the Canonet with TMax 100

    Re: Playing with the tides.

    Aaron,

    The bottom one with the waves is gorgeous, its a shame you didn't include a bit more of the wet rock.

    and I like the textures and tones in the first.

    Nice shots, Aaron! I really like that first one.

    I'm guessing the first one is Tmax?

    Re: Playing with the tides.

    Thanks Roger and Paul

    Roger, I thought the same about the wet rock after looking at the negatives. Unfortunately, I was paying a little too close attention to timing a wave at the time I'll need to pay closer attention to the smaller details in future compositions.

    Paul, you are correct. The top is TMax 100 with the Canonet and the bottom is Plus-X 125 with the Nikkormat EL w/50mm f/2 lens.

    Re: Playing with the tides.

    Great photos. I really like the second one. Just goes to show us how one can still capture great images on film.

    Cheers,

    Hey, hey, hey... just because digital is faster and more convenient doesn't mean film is obsolete...LOL

    Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you liked the shots
