I never wanted this blog to become a narcissistic ‘look at my photographs” typical photoblog. I try to keep it informative. But here goes. These shots were taken at the Wachusett Reservoir, in Clinton, Massachusetts. Developed this weekend, I am thrilled with the results. Kodak D-76 is known as an “all-purpose” developer, with other, more exotic developers, such as T-Max, and Rodinal heralded for their sharpness. Is D-76 really “pedestrian” compared to these other formulas? I hesitate to try anything else. This stuff is magic.
The 1st shot was taken from the top of the dam itself. the second, along its walls. Texture and detail that simply cannot be captured digitally. I will leave “sharpness” for the pixel peepers-
