Beautiful handling of contre-jour light, Maris.

The shadow play on the lawn is fabulous, as is your ability to get coverage as evenly spread as it is.

Very nice one there Maris.

Mick.

Thanks Barry Kirsten and Mick Fagan and Rogan Josh. Big film makes this reasonably easy: keep the sun out of the lens, give enough exposure, give enough development, use good variable contrast paper, do some split grade burn and dodge. You guys know the routine.

The tones in the shade punctuated by the intensity of the sunlit path make me feel the cool of being in the shade — even to the point of a breeze in my enclosed room I am sitting in here.
