About On my second day at China Camp, I arrived just before noon, and stayed for about 2 hours. I would have stayed longer, however, the rain starting to multiply very quickly. It was the first rain of the season, and it was making a very good impression.

I had a good system down, in where I would balance between my umbrella, the camera, and shutter cable just in time, where there would be no chance (sometimes) of rain hitting the lens.

I shot the entire day with a red filter on the 50mm, and the yellow on the 28.

One of the last shoots of the day, the rain was pounding down, and visibility was almost nothing. I set up the shot anyway.

I was on my last roll, and last few shots. The back of my pants were soaked. My socks were squishing around in my shoes that were not intended for serious weather.

I was just getting comfortable.

I rolled out the last 4 shots on the reel of this view on my way back. Everything was wet, so I had to wing it on focus. I could hardly see in the viewfinder. I kept the yellow filter on, and exposed for the best.

When I had the neg drying, I was so happy with what made it's way on to the film.

The scan of the negative was done on the CanoScan 8600F @ 9600dpi

Khayala,

thank you so much!!

This last spring, I had to make two trip to China/Hong Kong for work. It was *unreal*!!! You will love it. Be sure to go south, and see the rest of the country. Shanghai is a city under construction...but beautiful. The south is old world China...a site to see.

thanks again!

cheers,

Doyle,

Thank you very much!!

It was one of those days, when getting wet just didn't matter anymore...all I cared about was that the film in the camera stayed dry.

I love the red filter. I had a few contrast issues w/ the roll I developed (I agitated too much with the developer), so I had more luck with the images that had the yellow fillter.. but I do agree, the red filter (when done correctly :) ) is amazing.

cheers, and thanks again!

-Joel

Sheeeesh Joel . . . This shot ROCKS! Awesome conveyance of scene . . . well composed. Perfect use of filter (I just love what red and yellow filters do to B&W . . . though I use red the most). Your discomfort in getting wet has produced an awesome shot (and congrats on the award) making us capable of enjoying this view while staying dry . . . though just looking at it makes me wary my socks will get wet. Home-run! 7/7 and favorite!

Regards,
Doyle I <~~~~~~

A great soggy image Joel. The composition is perfect.
Excellent variations of texture, the misty mood created by the rain is presented well in B+W. I especially like the look of the water running off the roof edge.
WOW what a downpour, I'd say the soaking was well worth it and you are right in being happy with what you ended up with. This is a wall hanger for sure, excellent work,
cheers and congrats on this great image, Bek:)
