Taken in Bushmills, Co. Antrim. A traditional shop, the like of which is rapidly disappearing. I liked the fact they still put some of their wares out front - coal&sticks to the left, spuds on the right.

I like this very much, especially the colour of the paper, which really suites the image. I think I have some sheets of this paper in the darkroom, waiting to be used for the right picture.


Can I ask what camera you used, as I noticed some darkening / vignetting, especially along the top and the left hand side, and so wondering if this happened in the camera. You may of introduced it in the darkroom, but I think all sides would have benefited from it.


Great picture either way. Smile

I realy like this one, it shows something that has almost gone from our world, which is such a shame, used to be shops like this every where once, now almost gone

Thank you Terry and Richard for your kind comments.


Terry please award yourself a gold star for observation! The vignetting along the top is very uniform (probably what drew your eye to it). Only when I lifted the film from the photoflo to hang it up I saw this weird masking effect. Then it dawned me...I had used a lens hood for a 150mm lens instead of 60mm (Hasselblad 501cm was the camera).


I added some more under the enlarger but failed to get it uniform on all edges.


I love this paper - as you say, for certain subjects it is just perfect. The print is toned in home-brew ferricyanide /thiocarbamide toner from the recipe in Tim Rudmans Toning book, p32 (Rayco formula).


Cheers,
Michael

Beautiful image. The vignetting and toning really suit the subject. Well done!

Lovely subject and perfectly printed. The toning is ideal.

This is a very nice image, Michael. The print must be very impressive. I like the creamy colour of the paper.
Alex.

I can confirm that the real print is even better than the scan. I really like the vignetting and the choice of paper and toner suits this lovely, timeless image.
