these are my first four 8x10 photographs -- any thoughts, comments, suggestions, etc. would be welcome before making more pictures with the camera. thanks! (these are negative scans as the contacts were on high gloss RC paper and did not scan well at all.)

Lovely Image. The exposure is pretty much perfect to my eye. Nice cmposition, too - It makes me want to walk up those stairs!


Thanks

I do like this image, exposure seems spot on. I would trim just a touch off the top to loose that white edge in the top left hand corner. The plate on the wall on the right hand side does interrupt the clean lines but there is not much you can do about this except trim the right hand side to loose it but you then loose the the rest of the arch and the darker framing which shows off the white arch so well.

A lovely set of images Mark. This one in particular shows excellent use of light and shapes and you have a very good control over the process.

I am torn between this and the bookcase and frames shot as my favourites from this set with this one just winning.


Both well composed and the exposure is spot on in both cases.


Excellent results for your first 8 x 10 shots.

The light streak at the top left is probably from a leaky darkslide, so I'd check that out.
Apart from that, you have a strong image here, though I would always get the verticals parallel if using large format. Exposure wise, you need to meter the darkest areas, then overexpose by two stops from that reading, this will give you much better shadow detail. The highlights can be prevented from being too heavy by processing in any two bath developer. Finally, print onto a quality Fibre Based paper such as Gallerie or Multigrade FB Warmtone (two quite different 'looks' -see which you prefer), this will scan MUCH nicer than scanning from the neg.
