Hi Steve, great shot!


Whenever I take these kind of photos I often find the reflection darker than the sky. Did you have to do anything in the darkroom to balance the upper and lower tones?

Hi Marty.


This negative is very tricky to print as it is around a stop underexposed due to me not understanding metering 20 years ago! As a rule the sky should always be brighter than it's reflection but both top and bottom needed burning in to achieve any cloud details (almost twice as much for the sky). Overhead clouds cast all sorts of shadows on the jetty and far bank and it was only a couple of years ago that I made a successful print from it. I've been back recently and both gate and lifebouy are no longer there.


It is a split grade print with around 6 secs g0 and 0.5 secs g5 to add a little density. Burning in was all at grade 0.

I actually love it when that happens! It shows the transient nature of our subjects and enriches the enduring nature of our hobby.


I suppose the negative being one stop under exposed accounts for the short base exposure time?

The thin neg makes the sky less dense and burning in easier but it's a tricky task maintaining any shadow detail !
