Last month's self assignment was to capture the essence of fall. We want to congratulate both the winners and all those who

as you guys sent in so many great photos. Thanks to our sponsor,
FujiFilm, the winner receives 20
rolls of the Fuji professional film of their choice. The runners-up
receive 10 rolls of the Fuji professional film of their choice.
Winners are notified by email.
Winner: Jene Farm, Ben Lakatos
This image was taken the weekend of October 6th in Vermont. Ben
captured the image using his Canon Elan II E and a Sigma 28-200mm lens
onto Kodak 100VS film. That slide was scanned using a Dimage Scan
Dual II and cropped slightly to arrive at the final winning image.
Mail Pouch Tobacco Barn, Angie Cinnamon
Angie tells us "I wanted to capture the beautiful fall colors against the bright red
barn in Nashville, Indiana." To do it she used her Nikon N70
and Sigma 28-200 with a polarizing filter to capture the scene onto Fuji 200
print film. The negative was then scanned using a Microtek Scanmaker 4 flatbed
The file received some slight sharpening and a brightness adjustment to create
the final pastoral image.
Stream, Eric S. Gudger
Eric tells us that " When color in North Georgia begins to draw to a
close it's a great time to wind down and reflect on just how fortunate most of us are. What better place to do
it that sitting on a bench, watching a small brook, and waiting on the last
bit of color to change!!!!"
Eric captured this quiet image with his Nikon N70 and Nikkor 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D AF Zoom (shot at
28mm) onto Fuji Velvia which he rated at ISO 40. The resulting image
was scanned using an Acer ScanWit 2720S scanner. Eric stressed that
there was "NO manipulation" of the scanned image. The
result is a beautiful shot.
