Swan Lake

Hope. Hope for now and hope for the future. That’s what I felt when I took this picture. The first few pictures I took were without the swan. Quite boring, quite empty. Then the swan swam into the picture. Made it complete. Gave me hope.

Equipment: Mamiya C3, 80mm lens, 715nm filter
Film: Ilford SFX 200 developed in Ilfotec HC

    Nice image, but again I have problem with cropping. Do not worry it is just me 😉
    Lake is too big and at top bench from tree is coming back. So I made new crop for you. pity I can't add it here. I'll send it by email.

    I really like the "SFX effect" in this one. When can I see it in print 😉 ?

    well… it doesn't happen as often as I would like, but this is actually a scan from a print and not from a negative, so… you can see the (fibre based!) print soon.
