Did these for a friend. *istDL with FA 28-80mm f3.5-5.6 (not the Tamron sourced version).

Just for your information:

Except that it now sports an S&W metal lens hood, this was the combination that I used on this vacation. I have also owned the "other" FA 28-80mm f3.5-5.6 which was built by Tamron, I didn't like it as much for a number of reasons so this one I use.

BTW these shots have been straightened (where necessary), converted to sepia, "warmified", sharpened and resized in Picasa 3. This may sound complicated but only involves a few mouse clicks. If I were to print these I would probably go for a little more contrast in some of the images.

All very nice photographs which have inspired me to liken those exposed on clodium processed glass plates thanks to your sepia conversion...The portrait oriented #5, expecially, should be framed to hang!

I really like the 3rd and 5th ones, Ira. Although, even though I like sepia prints, I'm not crazy about them in these. Just my opnion, though.

Just wondering about the location, my first guess being somewhere in the Annapolis Valley.

Yes the last three are best.

I like these, Ira. I agree that they would need some extra contrast for printing. That may be the reason I really like the last one best. I like sepia, so I like these.

Thanks folks, these were shot in the Antigonish area.

Thanks for sharing these...I tend to use sepia for people mostly. This was a nice reminder that it can be used on other subjects.
