Re: Recommendation on lab processing Velvia?

Those few labs that are still processing E-6 have made a commitment to maintaining their chemistry etc and, as professional labs, stand or fall by the quality of there work.

I send my E-6 8x10 to them and 4x5 if I have a large amount. I can highly recommend their service.

Re: Snow gum, Technical Pan

Thank you all for your kind comments. This is one those images that very nearly didn’t happen and committing it to a sheet of Tech Pan required rather a leap of faith.

Re: More Snow gums

We are very fortunate to live in a country which has such an amazing variety of tree species but you are right Barry, there is a presence that Snow Gums have that seem to draw us to them.
