    a 'Limey' tries 'Yankie' Landscapes

    Visited USA some years ago with the PhotoTravellers Group -- I took my Pentax 6x7 in the hope of getting some 6x7 transparencies to sell through my Agency but recently they have sent back all my photos as they want only 'Digital' photos now !! Here are some of my attempts ---
    Washington, Ruby Beach 45mm f4 SMC Pentax lens, Fuji Velvia 50, Epson 1650 flatbed, Vuescan, PhotoShop 7

    USA: Washington: Ruby Beach by pentaxpete, on Flickr
    Mount Rainer National Park -- Reflection Lake . 45mm f4 SMC Takumar lens, Fuji Velvia 50, Epson 1650 flatbed scanner, Vuescan, PhotoShop 7

    USA: Washington: Reflection Lake' by pentaxpete, on Flickr
    Yellowstone National Park ; 'Old Faithful' 105mm f2.4 SMC Takumar lens, Fuji Velvia 50, Epson 1650 flatbed, Vuescan, PhotoShop 7

    Oh the joys of the open spaces with just a camera and a few rolls of film: Click image for larger version.

    Mind you, we have plenty of scenery right on our doorstep to shoot - Just a shame few seem to be interested in film now, preferring instead, digital shots and the two-a-penny microshot agencies.

    pentaxpete; I really liked your stuff. I wouldn't have sent those back to you, they are unique. I would have asked you to digital these as workfow had changed.

    Could always use a program like Reveal 1.2 to add the EXIF data... Make it look like you used a D700 or a D800 to take the photos. Then, they'd probably gladly accept them no problem.

    Anyway, cool shots. I need to get out some more and revisit some places I haven't been to in 15-20 years.
