In the Forest Posted on Sunday, 19th August , 2012 by Stephen G. Hipperson I The stuff of imagination? Originals taken with Rollei SL66 medium format camera on slide film. In my naivety I scanned them with too high a dpi/ppi and each file is over 600Mbytes, a wee bit too big to manipulate easily on my humble pc. ——–Stephen——– Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailPinterestLike this:Like Loading...

It has an underwater look, doesn’t it?
Partly because of the lack of contrast here. Interestingly, I have another image taken in another part of the wood that does really look like it’s underwater to me. Maybe I’ll post it (if I can find it!)
There be spirits?…. 😉 It looks kind of alive… Special…
Another ‘I really must go back’ location, to see how it had changed/developed.
Beautifully moody and oh so green!
Green is my favourite colour, there seem to be so many more shades of it than in other colours – I’m sure that’s not true but…..
Yes, definitely the stuff of imagination … very primeval! =D
“each file is over 600Mbytes, a wee bit too big to manipulate easily on my humble pc.”
If your machine will open the files, down size them to a size that your machine can handle and you want for your output, then save the file as a duplicate ( I never overwrite my original scanned files).
I think your images look good with the feel and the composition but do need a little bit more contrast.
It’s okay, I’ve sorted the specific problem, but when I came to ‘save for web’ on the original file it stopped my machine because I didn’t have enough memory! But as you can see, I’ve done it in the way you’ve suggested.
As to contrast, that’s a weird one, they look okay on my monitor but lack something in the post. Having said that, they do have a certain quality (like looking through a dirty window!).
Thanks for taking time out to comment, it’s very much appreciated.
Beautiful! I love the rich greens in that incredible vegetation! And the faint yellows and slightly pulled-back blacks very much remind me of something ethereal or .magical’… it’s as if these are straight out of some kind of lost memory… or fairy tale! SO nice!
A larger version pulls out lots of intricate detail and colouring.
I love the damp, mossy woods – it softens any sounds like a blanket of snow and fills the air with a lovely earthy scent.
I think I see Bilbo Baggins in there!
Not Gollom then? 😉
Oh, no! I’m scared of him! :-0
He’s just a poor lost soul and seriously misunderstood. 😉
Ah, yes! Precious! The Hobbit being released in theaters in December! It will be fun … again.
Landscape Is alive with filiations, shuttlings!!!
And the landscape is full of creatures eating creatures, the dead and rotting, and regrowth and life.
Thanks – needs a little more contrast for presentation here, though the slides themselves are okay – error on my processing. 😳
