  1. Absolutely fantastic. Love this image. Now I know it would have originally been film (Tri-X?), but is the border a digital addition or done during original printing?

    • Thanks Deb! The photo was originally a scanned Fujichrome colour slide that over the years had badly dis-coloured. Though I rarely use them, in order to ‘salvage’ the photo I used a B & W preset from Perfect Photo Suite 8 called ‘Over a Baril”. While I usually try not to use any ‘tricks’ that I wouldn’t have done in a regular darkroom, sometimes I need to take drastic measures and I must say it worked well in this situation.
