Abandoned Train Tracks in Black and White
As part of my experiment on Light, Surface, and Color, I also took pictures with a black and white Fomapan. I think I like this film better than the widely popular Kodak T-Max.

Very nice, I really like the tracks disappearing in to the dark.
Thank you. Not a very original composition but classic and pleasing at least.
Wow, I love these! Great feeling in them all!
About the toning, do you scan them as colour or bw?
I have set my scanner to 48->24 Bits for both colors and B&W negatives because I felt that setting the color mode to 16->8 Bits was a way to cheat the scanner into seeing a limited range of grey tones but I could be wrong. I’m a novice and to share more information on this subject and allow others to teach me something, I’ve added a picture scanned with the 8 Bits mode to my post at https://streetsofatlanta.wordpress.com/2013/04/07/bnsf-locomotive/. Please have a look at this last post and tell me what you think about using 24 Bits versus 8 Bits for B&W. Thank you for visiting me.
Steve, I’ve not visited your work awhile, but what I see now is so different. Your work has really come on. Congrats.
Thank you. It’s work in progress, I must say in all modesty, but it’s also part of a long term exploration of photography and what my style will turn out to be.
