My daughter coming off the stage at Buckingham Palace after the Coronation concert this summer, she was coming down, the smoke and light was there and I turned at the right moment (I think!)

Landscape / Marlow weir - night/moonlit

A couple of shots from the other night. I am not a great user of tripods (generally too bulky to carry round all the time), but I had little option for these exposures:


Marlow Weir in moonlight by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: 5Diii, 24-105mmL at 24mm, ISO 500, 30secs at f10.0

I cannot choose between these first two...


Marlow Weir in moonlight by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: 32mm, 25 secs at f10.0

And the last one:

All Clyde Estuary / Firth of Clyde themed this time.

The timber ponds in the foreground, the hills of the Arrochar Lomond range in the distance.
Waves breaking over the prominade wall at Saltcoats
View from Lyle Hill over Gourock Bay
View from Erskine Bridge past Dumbarton Rock and down the Esturary.

I particularly like 2 and 4. Fantastic shots. No 2 for stopping that wave as only King Canute could have wished, and No 4 for the light. Simply lovely, both.

But anyway, regarding 35mm film "which is actually 36mm" you couldn't be more wrong, roll film is measured by its film gauge, that is, it is 35mm wide, hence 35mm film, it has nothing to do with the arbitrary dimensions of the film we expose.

Let me be more precise. The gauge (from edge to edge of the film including the sprocket holes) is 35mm. The area we exposed on a 35mm film was 24 x 36mm. That is the relationship that drives the "standard" lens.

I will research further on the relationship with cinema film.

Classic film before 35mm was 72mm but 35mm (which is actually 36mm) rapidly became the dominant film standard. If you use Pythagoras theorem, you will note that the square root of the hypotenuse (the diagonal on the film) equals the square root of the sum of the square of the two other sides of the triangle (24mm and 36mm)For 35mm format film that gives approximately 43mm. That is the perfect match for what the human eye sees. That got rounded up to 50mm for most purposes. I rather suspect you will find similar relationships with other standard film sizes, although I have never done the maths.

Great shot!  I don't know if the composition was improvised or not, but it works.

Jim

Thanks Jim. I was milling about at the front of the stage waiting to collect her, and saw her coming down. So, yes: improvised!

Cheers
