Rene, I am not surprised this is your favourite, I think it's also my favourite.
There are many things I love about it, it looks like it could have been taken anytime in the last 80 years, it's simply timeless, in one shot you have been able to capture the efforts and emotions of the author of all these images (were images yours or your husband's), this one image is like reading a whole book and being able to hear the wind and smell the aroma all at the same time. Composition is very well balanced, you have used the technology to simplify the reading of the image by having fairly shallow debth of field, the same can be said for light, and you used slow shutter speed to give it life and movement. IMO this is splendid.

I see by your other galleries that some of your photographic interests are somewhat different from mine, but by seeing this folder I would strongly encourage you to do more black and white daily/street shots.

PS, I have posted a quick reply to the issue you raised about photographing art in my gallery.

Yeah.. this hits the old heart! Reminds me of the old days with 100' rolls of tri-x and three chemical trays smelling the place up. It was fun when I was young.. think I'll stick with a computer darkroom now! Good shot, perfect contrast for the subject.

wonderful, wonderful. It warms my chemist's heart. Lovely days spent in the darkroom!

Wonderful composition Rene, it brings back fond memories of my darkroom days.

I think it’s the repeating pattern that draws our eye. But I agree this is a very captivating image. Well done.

Nick, this is one of my favorite pictures. It was up at the ME Workshops. My husband was in the printing/toning class. They had their pics out to dry. I took a fairly long exposure (got some movement as there was a breeze). The second row of prints is really there. Glad you liked it.--Rene

For some reason I really like these sort of pictures, and the second row of drying prints (or is it a reflection?) really makes this, adds a depth to it that would have been missing otherwise. It helps you realise that almost anything can make an interesting picture if you have the right eye for it.
