Southwold Diptychs

The weather forecast said it'd be shiny at dawn today but that turned out not to be the case. Instead, it brightened up about 11 o'clock, so Zoe and I made the most of it and went to Southwold with Emily for a nice walk by the sea. As with yesterday I shot with the Acros +Y film simulation, and +2 highlights, +4 shadows. Generally it worked well, but there were a couple of cases where +4 shadows was too much, so I re-processed the image on-camera with +2 shadows. The result was almost all of these pairs are JPEGs »

Southwold in winter

I thought we might get lucky with the weather today, and manage to get some nice shiny winter pictures in the Suffolk seaside town of Southwold, but although it was sunny on the drive there, as we arrived the clouds moved in and flattened all the light. Still, it's kind of an appropriate aesthetic, the grey overcast weather reflecting the unbusy nature of a seaside town in winter. Took the 18–55 again, in the vague hope it'd work better on the X-T2. Nope. I really should just sell it, I'm never satisfied with the results; the primes have spoiled »

Gorleston, see the sea

Doesn't feel like a week since my last wander around Gorleston seafront, and the weather was not so shiny this time, hence the black and white. This is kind of the first of two vaguely related posts; I took them on the same day, but more than that they both sort of illustrate aspects of Gorleston in a non-glamorous way. Used the 18–55 again. Still don't like it. That accursed dust spot :( »
