In going through my old slides I found this unmounted image in a small box of loose film. Based upon some clues this image is from the late '60s when I had a real darkroom in my house in Montana. This image is the basis of a highly manipulated image I did in a darkroom then that used such techniques as slide sandwiches, manipulated paper negatives,and other tricks. That image won me a prize in an Air Force Photo contest. I later took the print into Photoshop for further work in later years and it is the image called Zebra in my gallery if you want to compare. So I decided to make a straight image of this Ektachrome slide. Based on the time frame this would have been shot with a Photomic T. No other data is available, so I don't know what lens I used. So I did as I have done with all the recent slide copies I have posted. I scanned the image with my Epson Perfection V700 at 6400 dpi using Silver Fast Archive Suite first creating an HDRi file of 4 16 bit channels and then making a dust and scratched processed 48 bit color file all using Silver Fast. Final Post was done in Capture CNX2 2.3 64 bit. Since these are huge TIFF files greater than 8000 pixels on the long side, you need the 64 bit version to process them. I then save the final result as a NEF.

Here is the modified image I did years ago in the darkroom and then later with Photoshop. If you click on the image it will take you to the gallery where you can read what I did to make this version.
