An Iconic Landscape


Great Rock #1_GOR_BW

Leica R8 camera and Leica 90mm f2 Summicron-R series lens with Fuji Velvia 100F film

This is the second version of this image I produced for this blog site. The first was designed to accurately reproduce the original 35mm color transparency. This version explores the same image rendered in black-and-white.

I feel the textural qualities of the image, evident in the rock, clouds and white-crested waves have been further emphasized through the black-and-white rendering. Once again I’ve explored split toning with a subtle warm tonality in the rock and waves and a contrasting cool blue applied to the sand, sea and sky.

The original color transparency was scanned with a Heidelberg Tango film scanner. Processing was conducted in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
