Red filtered black and white film of small infra red sensitivity. The stark and contrasty

look of this combination I like to use in photos of architectural interest. Thanks for

Pierre, thank you. I seem to have had my vision working well that day, although I can assure you that is not a constant quality! I am really slow in checking my portfolio and need to spend more time seeing your own intriguing work and that of others, but Photo.Net is really vast.

Monte, thanks for your comment. As mentioned, I used a moderate effect infrared B&W film and a red filter to darken the sky and create this type of tonality. I liked the assymetry of the saltbox type roof and building form and the chance appearance of tree branch shadows on the fence, as well as the placement of the bowl. It's a foundry building and a shot I made in color was too realistic in my opinion, with a particular mix of colors not too interesting. Some subject matter is just better and has more soul in black and white. It looks pretty good in a 16 x 20 silver print.
