A couple of weeks ago I got up at 4am to drive over to Tintern Abbey in Chepstow, hoping to get there for twilight and the sunrise. Unfortunately due to cloud the sun never really rose, but this gave me a really nice soft light to play with so I was happy!
This is my first print from the day, and so far my favourite.

I agree with Folker, that's the way it is coming over on my monitor too.

I've edited it. My camera appears to have got rid of any shadow detail the print has, but oh well.

Its not easy to reproduce your print on the PC screen especially if you are re-photographing it.

I have enough troubles keeping both highlights and shadows with my scanner, let alone trying to use a digicam!


So frustrating when you turn up early for teh sunrise and the cloud never clears - glad you came away with something you like Wink.

Yes Barry, near Tintern Abbey, but the mine was in a little village near by I just can't remember the name for the life of me!

It would be good to see this re-scanned sometime with a bit more shadow detailed included. The idea is good but I would go in a tad closer and use the entrance as a frame.

Thanks Neil, I'll give it ago. The film is so grain-free I could probably enlarge to 10x8 cropped with still very little visible grain.

Hi Theo,
I live in the Chew Valley, and the only Tintern Abbey I know is over the River Severn near Chepstow. Interesting picture though.
