Rocks and grasses by peterdegraaff

Rocks and grasses

...at Cowries.

Taken with Toyo-View 45CF field camera with 6x7 roll film back, using Nikkor-M 300mm lens at f.90 for 5 seconds on Rollei Digibase 200 colour film. Developed in Tetanal 2 bath C41 kit: developer 3:30 mins and blix 6:00 mins.

This film is interesting in that it is designed purposely to be developed in either E6 or C41 chemistry.

I developed in Tetanal rather than the Rollei kit with the film ending up being very thin and curly making it hard to scan. Love the colours though which has the feel of cross processing.
@grizzlysghost @chewyteeth @cmc1200 @phillyphotos Thought you might be interested in colour of this film. Am amazed by tonality and hues. Have only removed dust and sharpened slightly.

The layers of color and textures are amazing, Peter. That nikkor 300mm lens really captured it beautifully! Of course, full credit must be given to the photographer!

Lots of detail in this wall of stones - a quarry?

Amazing textures and depth in the rock's spaces.

I just found a roll of exposed E6 slide film and had NO clue as to what to do with it and did not really want to ruin it with the local hour processing. The colors are so vivid and probably just like your eye was seeing them.

@phillyphotos process it yourself
February 17th, 2013  
@peterdegraaff with d76????? With packing and cleaning off my desk at work, I have not even taken the time to look the process up. I have two 24 rolls to take tomorrow and 20 on the leica which I am predicting to be a complete bust.

Beautiful shot! The more I look, the more things I see in the rocks. Like clouds. Oh, look! There's a hippo!
February 17th, 2013  
@mandyj92 you must be having a great night
February 17th, 2013  
@peterdegraaff Indeed! I was kidding about the hippo. But there are interesting shapes there. ;)
