the "beautiful" two
featured and this makes a smile on my face...
first month of the year 2018 around "Südbrücke" cologne
a clear and cold january evening
with beautiful reflections on the surface of the water
thanks for the flooding on the river rhine
55 seconds (a bit too long!)
a few details about my approach to get such a photo:
well i measured with the spotmeter (2°).
first the bright areas on the bridge piers
second the dark areas in the front right corner in the water
this gave me a time of 15 second at f8 @ISO100.
the addition of 40 seconds to account for the *Schwarzschild effect resulted in the 55 seconds for the final image
look diagram page4/15 its the german version from 2002
i know there is an english version on the Ilford page, and this diagram has completely other adjusted times!!! Why ? i don't know.
look at page2/6 its from 2018.11
**reciprocity failure is really important to understand, but in the end not as complicated as it might sound!
a cable remote release
...yes the WLF should always be closed at longer exposure
Ilfosol3 for 4min.30 seconds @20°C
I edit and archive my pictures with ps-lightroom
the black and white pictures especially this additionally with Silver Efex Pro
However, I do not use any defaults that can be found too often in Efex Pro! At least for my few night shots I use SilverEfex Pro to emphasize certain areas in the picture more.
