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
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
a cable remote release
...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.
