I had been experimenting with Topaz and discovoured Ghostly….a sort of high contrasting effect.
For those of you who, like me, worked in the days of enlargers, developer, stop bath and fixers Ghostly is similar to pushing the film or using copy film.
In the day I often ‘pushed’ my film to several thousand ASA and developed accordingly or purchased 100 foot rolls of copy film which develops to either BLACK or WHITE……no other tones…then used primarily by the newspaper trade.
Aside from that this picture is EXACTLY as it took it….it is not a composite or a clone….all I did was to crop the shot to EMPHASIZE the length of this particular flock…..the rest is as it was.
I have to confess …..this is DEFINITELY one of my favorite shots.
