Default Vintage Processing Analog or Digtal Simulation

We've forgotton such a lot of fine approaches to imaging. The first 100 years allowed photographers to work in so many light-sensitvie media that have been mostly washed away from our consciousness by the razmataz of easy to achieve mgnificent color images.

Still, it's feasable today to pay homage to effects that were enjoyed 50 and 100 years ago or more.

So here's hte challenge. Re work you favorite pictures using digital technioques to reproduce the sense of the precious media that have moved beyond the reaches of most of us.

Of course, anyone who can produce a cyanotype, albumin print or any other genuine analog form, show it here.

Asher

My first contribution is of a tree that is the turning point for walkers in Holmby Park. At this point, if one needs to stretch, here's the place, or if one has to stop at a restroom the buddy waits here.

Thanks so much Charlotte for the visit and kind words. I think it's helpful to get out of our comfort zone and visit other parts of the universe!

Absolutely- Also sometimes the comfort zone becomes extraordinarily wrong and then becomes too unreal and badly managed . This is beautiful

Hi

my contribute:

this in a very old cultural and industrial aera of northern Italy, with numbers of channels and different waterways between Bologna, Padova and the delta of the river Po.
Since the seventies all those works, ships, carriages and of course the trades and crafts have vanished. Only the waterways, sheds, houses and castles remained ...

This is a fabulous sight and construction that fits the subject and topic of lost skills, passion and self worth, ascif a beautiful cloud was cleaned away by the einfmd.

I love the texture and will look it up.

This is very nice, although since the image is an edited fiction anyway I would have removed the high power line. I would leave the low power one only.

An eye for detail and I concur. Why didn't eye think of that! It is a very good move as it removes unneeded junk and distraction.

But it does represent the overwhelming footprint of industrial technology!

Still, a simpler version is a more idyllic way of paying respect to the artisans who have vanished!

The post processing makes the image appear to have been taken a long time ago. What I meant is that this kind of towers were not common at the time the image appears to be set.

Hi Jerome,

you are an idealist ... but I agree with you, the obviously high(?) powerline is a bit irritating.
On the other hand this shot may have been taken in the very very early sixties and found in a decent rotten leather box of genuine toscanian leatherbag from the twenties near this old shed ...

Let me show once again the wonderful benefit of exploring filters to simulate vintage analog processes we lack skills in today!
