Thanks for the comment! I just browsed through some of your posts and I’m amazed by your work and the fact that you’re using film makes it even more amazing. Everything is so sharp and vivid. You’re tempting me to dig up my dad’s film slr

I don’t know what I like more about this, the background or the subject. This is just amazing.

Very beautiful and a different take on Flower pics
James – Don’t worry, there are many more where this came from. As always, thanks for stopping by.
PJ – Thank you. I felt the same thing when I scanned this. 🙂
Temp – If I end up being the one who got you into film, don’t forget to credit me. 😉
Amnesia – I appreciate that. Expect to see more of me on your blog in the future. I really like your work.
Kayo – Thank you. All I can hope for is to do something different.

THIS is a fabulous photo. I only wish I could see a larger version of it… something to fill up my 24″ monitor. I have a Dahlia image on my blog that was selected as an “Image of the Week” on one of the photography forums I frequent and it pales in comparison this this. Excellent!

Wow is right. What an amazing picture.

Can you explain (in easy to understand terms…still learning the photography lingo!) how you actually did this or is there somewhere to read more about how you did it? I love this!!!!

Clever! It looks like they’re burning. It’s such an interesting idea: I haven’t seen anything like that before.

Ed – I appreciate the compliment.
Janey – I’m glad you like it.
Purple – It’s actually pretty simple. I just scan the color negative as a positive and then convert it to black and white. It’s loads of fun.
Peaceful – Thanks. That’s all I can hope for.
Beyond – I’d seen something similar on flickr, but not in black and white. I think it really works well in monochrome. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi iheartfilm, I’m the guy from the camera shop that developed your film today. That’s an interesting effect, a negative as a positive. It makes for a very contrasty image. Try inverting the image again in Photoshop – it looks great! I like your diverse collection, very nice.

Well, I’m glad you stopped by. Thanks. Yeah, it is pretty neat. I’ve got a ton more of these (a few worth posting).

Julie – Thank you. It did come out well, didn’t it?

A really nice take on this. The black and white is perfect .

Court – I’m glad you think so. 🙂
Jewel – Hey, I’m still learning, too. 🙂
Bo – Such kind words. I appreciate all the comments you’ve been giving me. 🙂

This is sweet! I’ve never thought to convert a photo like this before. I’ll have to try it out sometime. But this pic is stunning!
