I Come Bearing Gifts - 16bit, 400 PPI, Tiff

Hi Folks,

My name is Damien O'Riley.

This is my first post here, but I have been a steady reader for quite some time. When I was contemplating what my first post should contain, my old southern 'schoolin' came into play:

When you arrive at a party, make sure you always bring a gift.

I have noticed lots of you talking about not having high quality images to retouch and play with as a group. So, I thought that my 'gift' could be a, what I believe, nice image for everyone to play with.

This photo was taken a couple of years ago on a D70. I converted the RAW straight to a 16 bit, 400 PPI Tif file and uploaded it to my site. I am including a thumbnail preview of course.

If you want to download the image...its just shy of 4 megs. And please, do extend me the proper copyright etiquette.

If you folks enjoy playing with this image...I will gladly upload more of various style and themes (All taken by my fiance or myself) and heck, I even have a few hundred 2000 PPI monster files scanned from a Mamiya Medium Format.

Anyway, here are the links. It's great to have a community like this to come to and learn from.

Warmly,
Damien O'Riley

We bought a Nikon Coolscan film scanner a while back. I still love shooting film and I got tired of paying my local photo shop $5-$10 per hi-res scan for Medium format.

As to why I scanned them with such a high DPI? I guess all I can say is that, when they were scanned back then, I didn't know any better...lol Now I scan most everything at 400 DPI unless I am going to print a HUGE print, then I will scan higher.

Oh, and don't ask why I have been using DPI instead of PPI...trying to do to many things at once plus I have been fighting all day with a, what I am coming to believe, is a demoniacally influenced printer profile.

So, please excuse my lapse into 'Duhness'

Damien

i hear ya, i still love a medium format transparency....the convenience of a digital camera is great but a Hasselblad H3D-39 isn't in the budget i'm afraid...

Swampy i really like your picture. It's so fare away from what i daily do in photoshop(Beauty/fashion retouch), but still im so impressed.

If i had seen it on a wall, i would have tougth it was a watercolor painting. And also the Texture in the paper look good.

Thank you, Keiserjohn!

Turning a lovely photo into a piece of art is fun and rewarding. I wish I had the photographic skills to capture a picture as lovely as Damien's.
