    Default Supreme Court - Lady Blue

    Taken using an EOS300 on Max400 film. No filters or extra saturation was used. Slight grain can be seen due to scan quality.

    Very good contrast between the sky and the supreme court. I think the deep blue sky helps alot in this shot. Btw, what scanner r u using?

    yeap I agree on the nice contrast, makes the supreme court very outstanding. Some nitpicks are that the tree at the bottom right is should be excluded if can be helped, and some details on the building are blown off.

    Great pic still!

    Grain is probably due to the Max 400 itself.

    Falcon:
    Don't know the actual model, but its a Linoscan A3 scanner.

    Tweek:
    I actually felt that the tree adds more color to the scene, quite impossible to take it away unless a take the shot head on from the front of the building. The blown-off details could be the result of the scan and resizing (resized from an 8R shot).

    ckiang:
    Yeah, damn wasted, but it was the only roll of film I had that day.

    SniperD:
    Yes, no CPL or other filters. That day had probably one of the bluest skies of the year.

    I see I see....in that case I think the tree should have been more complete to add some aesthetic touch to the picture. My feel is that half a tree looks more like an accidental inclusion, a distraction.

    Yup I know can't take the tree away from your angle...that's why I said it's a nitpick, hehe. =)

    believe it or not, it was taken at 9am. Thats the only time when the court faces the sun.

    maybe it's just me. i feel that the contrast is too high, resulting in the photo looking very "hard".

    btw, i find the sky is at its most blue between 9am to 10am.

    Hi Throas,

    Very nice blue...imazing that the details on supreme court are so well maintained despite no Neutral density filter!

    I really enjoy the contrast!

    Seems like digital still has a long way to beat this kind of resolution and details...
