This is a revisit of an old friend. With access to the nice imacon scanner here at UIC, if pulled alot of my favorite old negatives and rescanned them using the drum scanner. Oh what a difference! Anyway, I figured this was a good peice to introduce myself with. I shot this when I first start learning how to use B&W film. It was the foggiest day I havwe ever seen in my life. I ran around savannah burning rolls of film on the scenery. This image, however was the most successful of the lot. This tree is the oldest in the Savannah area. Over 350 years old, this live oak is huge.

Hello Hubert,
A very warm welcome to TN. This is a lovely first posting. The image is nicely framed and it was a nice choice for B&W. A lovely old tree that you have displayed well. Keep posting.

Impressive start learning how to use B&W film. Brilliant exposure, light and contrast. Those pics are not the easiest (I tried and failed).

very nice pic, TFS Ori

Hi Hubert,

Splendid fractal nature, marvellous exposure, foggy atmosphere mysteriously converted to B+W !
Nice to see that older film material often reveal treasures of beauty, with crisp sharpness without Photoshop and filtering. Thanks for sharing here on this marvellous site (your picture has a twin brother 'Seeds" standing in the thumbnail galery just next to yours !)
Thanks, Patrick

nice and contrast tree

Very nice!! I like how the 2 branches appear to suddenly come out of the fog! Well done!!



PS: 350 years is not that old for a tree.
