More Prints in the Clearing Baths

Another set of platinum/palladium prints from shots made with the Leica M Monochrom T-246.

From a series of experiments using my 35+ year old Noctilux wide open at f/1, not because of especially low light, but to intentionally limit the focus to very shallow depth of field. (If you click on the image area of the pictures you'll get a slightly larger but more accurate tonal representation of the pictures,  though showing what a Pt/Pd print looks like in web files is pretty hopeless). These are 11" wide prints, Pt/Pd, on 11x15 Hahnemühle Platinum Rag.

The same lens used at f/5.6 for more normal-looking depth of field. Both of these were made in the Hidden Valley section of Steep Rock Preserve in Washington, Connecticut.

Back to the workhorse 35mm Summicron.

Preceding two from White Memorial Conservation Center in Litchfield, Connecticut.

Back to Steep Rock Preserve, this one from the original main section of the park.

Out of the woods and into town, a shot from Brewster, NY.
