I personally like the really black outer edges of this picture Chisel, leading and leaving us to look at the details in the centre. I say 'personally', as with photo club judges, I generally get, 'I would have left a bit more detail in these particular shadowy edges.' Well judge, if I had wanted to do that I would have done! But also they always presume it is a digital print and file printed via photoshop!


A few more details about the picture would be good please Chisel, as I am rather curious about it. Smile

As the happy recipient of this print I can say I really like the black surroundings. It draws the eye to the subject. It's proof that you should always have a camera ready when wandering around a city as you never know what you might come across! A very nice print that clearly presented a few challenges - both in the taking and the darkroom. Thanks.

I couldn't agree more with Terry about judges view of black spaces. The emphasis is upon the central area of the picture and well done Fran. I do like the way the eye is drawn in.

This looks great, Fran. Well spotted. It's not often you see a horse in the city nowadays. We only have police horses here now, and I can't think when I last saw one.

Thanks guys. I was wandering around the city (Dublin) waiting for my daughter and just happened to pass this alley, glanced down, and there was this guy washing the horse. They have some horse carriages here for tourism etc and I guess that was the story with this lad. It was the quickest grab shot ever. The alley was covered at the street, so the entrance was very dark, but the horse and fella were fairly well lit.
Technical stuff: well, it was shot on a holga, think it was tmax and would have developed in Rodinal, most likely stand developed. There is a horrendous light leak in that holga that I've haven't fully sorted yet (think its actually through the shutter) and the entire right hand side of the neg is wickedly overexposed as a result. I took it as a bit of a challenge - I could scan it no problem and retrieve detail, but printing was another matter. It took a lot of work to get a reasonable print - negative masking, a lot of burning etc. I too thought it better with the black border, I think actually it might look well if I selenium toned it to try get some plum type colour.

Very nice, Fran - it suggests a story, as the best shots do.
