Last Month's Self Assignment Winners

Last month's self assignment was to capture the essence of fall.  We want to congratulate both the winners and all those who participated.  This was by far the toughest contest to judge so far 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. Congratulations Ben.


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 scanner.
The file received some slight sharpening and a brightness adjustment to create the final pastoral image.

Georgia 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.
