About the Image(s)

This photo was take in Techatticup,Nevada which is near Nelson. It is about 40 minutes from Las Vegas and is very popular for photo shoots. I recommend the gold mine tour. The photo was taken in color and then converted in NIL to mono. Contrast is huge in mono so I check the number of zones and there are 9.

A great sharp Black and white image. This image bring you back into the past. You can read the"Approved Packard Service: sign, The Firestone Auto supply sign as well 32 cents a gallon. The tonal range is better than Great. What lens did you use for this shot?   Posted: 08/01/2020 10:18:02

I used a Canon Mark111 with a Canon 24-70mm lens at 35mm. NIk was used to convert it to mono.   Posted: 08/01/2020 12:41:22

I love this image. I love the nostalgic feel. I love that everything in the image is sharp without to much of a HDR look. The only change I would make is to brighten it up a bit. It looks as if it on an overcast day. Try a yellow filter for the old western kind of look if that is what you are going for.   Posted: 08/01/2020 17:10:17

Michael - awesome and I have and have seen this shot many times and like your version very much in B&W. Nice work processing. Did you do some housekeeping in front of the building? looks way too tidy ;>)   Posted: 08/04/2020 12:52:07

Yes I did clean up the front as it was distracting.   Posted: 08/04/2020 15:23:29

Beautiful image. Wish I could get my husband back to Las Vegas, not only for the casinos (which he despises) but for the photo ops both on and off the strip.   Posted: 08/08/2020 12:20:17

I avoid the strip but the Bellagio and Aria are great for photos.   Posted: 08/08/2020 14:17:41
