This is the photograph that ymgandy sent me. Taken in late summer in woodland near his home. The lady shown is his wife and the two dogs Tosca and Kim. A pure grab shot inspired by the lovely long shadows and rim lighting.

I really like this image, very difficult to print but excellently done with an appealing subject.

Brilliant! Fabulous light, great textures, and the composition makes the best use of the long shadows. Lovely.

wonderful shot, for a grab shot it is fabulous.it looks more like a set up shot than a chance shot, very well seen, taken and printed

I can't often tell what makes a neg difficult to print. What would be the difficult parts of this one? The long shadows really make this one a bit special


Thanks


Mike

Thank you Derek for uploading the san for me, I must get a grip on this technology and thank you gentlemen for your kind remarks. I think he print is just about on the limits of paper & film. Mike asked what was difficult about making the print. The highlight was the sun coming through the trees& without burning in just showed as a big flare & I wanted to show detail in the drystone wall so that was held back, all done on a soft grade. The foreground was help back a bit then burnt in at a high grade to retain detail. Hope that makes sense, easier to do than write about.

Fantastic composition. The diagonal of the shadows leads to the group of figures which is perfectly placed in the frame. A superb image. Alex.

Hi ymgandy,


Brilliant and all of the above plus a point that some may not be aware of; this is a very classical composition in historical terms which is probably why the normally restless square format is on this occasion comfortable, peaceful. It is classical because the light is travelling from top left ish to bottom right ish, this light is something that most of the well known painters used a lot, through history up to the impressionists.


Regards


Rob

Absolutely lovely shot. The shadows leading in and the sunlit area both around the shadows and the sun itself really come together to draw the eye to the right spot.

Thanks for the explanation. I still have difficulty working back from a balanced print to envisaging the difficult to print neg
