photoblog image Windmill Silhouette

Windmill Silhouette

Years ago I took some photographs on my usual slide film, Kodak Ektachrome, and sent it off to a lab for processing. On this occasion they messed up the processing and when it was returned only a few shots from the 36 were of any use. Most of them had a funny colour cast at the very least.

The fortunate side was that the effect seemed to help this against the light shot of this windmill tail and it has done quite well in competitions in camera clubs over the years.

Hope you respect me for my honesty!

Pity t ohear about the lab but this has turned out really well! I like the strong silhoutte filling the frame and the composition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I've got another competition lined up for this at my Club next year.
You are always honest Brian. I can see why this has done well for you...just don't be quite so honest with the judgestongue
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. I'm entering in another competition next year, we'll see how it does.

This once again proves that you can never tell what will be a good shot or not. The constrast of the windmill against the background is truly wonderful.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Scarlet I'm glad you like the effect that got here "by accident."
