the "beautiful" twice

first month of the year 2018 around "Deutzer Hafen" und "Südbrücke" cologne


in the bag my 500cm loaded with an ilford fp4

it was a clear and cold evening

with beautiful reflections in the water...

thanks for the flooding on the Rhine



ilford fp4


55 seconds


a few details about my approach to get such a photo:

well i measured with the spotmeter (2°).

first the bright areas on the bridge piers

second the dark areas in the front right corner in the water


this gave me a time of 15 second at f8 with ISO100.

the addition of 40 seconds to account for the "Schwarzschild effect" resulted in the 55 seconds for the final image


no filter

a cable remote release

closed WLF...

...yes the WLF should always be closed at longer exposure


of course, the film was selv-developed

this time in Ilfosol3 for 4min.30 seconds @20°C

here is the recipe:


I edit and archive my pictures with ps-lightroom

the black and white pictures especially this additionally with Silver Efex Pro


However, I do not use any defaults that can be found too often in Efex Pro! At least for my few night shots I use SilverEfex Pro to emphasize certain areas in the picture more.
