20x16 print on Ilford paper. My companion had a leg and an arm in plaster

casts (prior week skiing accident) but the exploration of the California

coast was irresistible, thanks to a nearby conference visit. IU think I tamed

the infrared film in this one to get a reasonable grey tone variation. Thanks

for your critique and comments.

I think the tone gradation is great.Whether by forces of nature as wind or fire, there is scenery from the coastal region which is oftwen other worldly.

Thank you for your comments on my photos and the support for abstract and exploratory techniques.

Michael, thank you. I was pleased with the result, particularly as it was made with Konica 750nM IR film (120 size) and orange filter, a film not known for its smooth handling of grey tones. I think I slightly underdeveloped the film and that helped the tonal variation.


I liked your handling of the dynamnic range, privileging the highlights, in your Milano Central Station image of your Italian folder of your portfoloio.

I have never done B/W.  But yours are so impressive and so beautiful.  Thans for your encouragement and your warm advice.  Now I learn CS5 and I will try B/L when I am in that position.  Best regards,
