Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

Taughannock Falls [near Ithaca, NY]

Here are two more examples of images derived from shooting with and without a 10-stop Neutral Density filter. Both were at f8 and ISO 200. The natural looking waterfall [top] was exposed for 1/45 sec., while the 'cottony' image [bottom] with the filter was exposed for 10 sec. A little brightening etc was done in Lightroom 3. I am not pleased about the discoloration produced with the filter, which seems to be a common occurrence, according to what I have read. Oh well -- conversion to B&W would cure it.
