Did some more test shots this morning in the predawn light. Hope to learn a lot from those, and if I'm lucky, get back a print that's good enough to post.

Today I should be getting a set of prints from one of the new labs I'm trying out. I sent more color film off to a second lab to test their work and a roll of b&w to a lab in AZ. Can't wait!

Camera - Minolta Maxxum 9000
Film - Kodak Tri-X
Shutter Speed - 1/20
Aperture Setting - f-16 Aperture Mode
Lens - Minolta 75-300mm zoom lens @ 135mm
#25 Red Filter
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

Boats and water can be a great mix for relaxation or excitement. The relaxation looks to be turned up full, here! Very placid and calming shot.

This is a very calming image. Well titled. Awhile ago you mentioned that you had a new scanner on your wish list. I was wondering if you decided on which one you wanted to get.

I remember days in my childhood camping by the beach and walking the long sands to discover boats I could sleep under or drift the tidal shallows in. Laying on my back across the seat of a dingy looking up at the sky and thinking of what tomorrow will bring.
Nice image Micki.

Perfectly relaxing - I can hear the ripples lapping against the boat's hull...
