Stumps On The Water……

Shot these recently at Wachusett Reservoir in West Boylston, MA. While not particularly interesting subjects, they really do help to show off the D-76 development capabilities. Sharp, without being overly sharp, full of contrast, moderate grain, yet, beautiful.

Tonality, and detail, is something many digital photographers neglect to talk about, as they seemingly fixate over sharpness, and lack of “noise”. Yet, they forget that some of the world’s greatest photographs, from the likes of Cartier-Bresson, and Adams, did indeed have grain, beautiful grain. And that for years, Tri-X was the gold standard of black and white film. I think it still is.
