You’ve heard no doubt “Re-Work Wednesday”. Well this is “Try again Tuesday” This is a shot I took at Stonehenge in 2011. Taken with my Leica MP with a Nikkor 20mm mounted via a Novoflex LeiNik converter. I used Fuji Reala film and the basis of this shot is a 1 hour lab scan. I’ve used a wet plate filter in Analog Efex Pro to achieve the effect.

Though I have only a vague idea of the steps you took to achieve this look, it definitely was worth it. It’s very difficult to present an iconic place in a new way but you certainly have done so. Perfect!
Thanks Emilio. It’s difficult not to get too many people in the shot too.
Love this and was just about to congratulate you for using an old process when I got to “Analog Efex Pro” ho well, it is still a really good interpretation of an oft badly photographed subject.
To be Honest David I’d really like to try the real thing. It’s on my list of things to try.
I know that feeling – but in Oman, just getting film is now almost impossible, my list of things to do when I return to the UK for good, is getting very long!!
The process and the subject go hand in hand with each other.
I was wondering how you’d managed to make a wet plate image at Stonehenge – until I read a bit further. The real McCoy is on my to experience list too
