Farewell I

Madrid, Spain view map

In the winter of 2008 I did a lot of scanning of old slide positives and colour negatives. The negatives proved to be in good shape, but the slides lost some colour and clarity during the two decades. However, I did find quite a number of old images that were interesting enough to scan and share on Pbase. I converted most of the slides to B&W in photoshop. This is one of my favourites from the resulting European Wanderings gallery. The strong contrasts and old style railway setting create a vintage atmosphere that I like. More than now, in 1986 travelling in Europe was also travelling in time.

Beautiful shot -- the high-key-ish background gives a great sense of light. Nicely done all around.

Wonderfully composed yes..The quality of the scan makes the image seem much older which in this case it's an advantage.
