Autumn in the cove

This is a cove on one of the two lakes at Promised Land State Park in Greentown Pennsylvania put on quite a show of Fall color this year. I shot this back on 10-5-2013.  I wish there was a more interesting sky on this but what you give up in interestingness you gain in softness of light since the 90% cloud cover acted like a giant softbox spreading low contrast light over the landscape. 

Camera: Calumet CC-401 4x5 large format monorail view camera. 

Lens: Rodenstock Geronar 150mm F6.3 lens in a Copal 0 shutter. 

Film: Kodak Ektar 100 C41 Color Negative Film

Exposure: 1/4 second @ F45 with film rated at box speed.  Metered with a Pentax 1 degree spot meter.

Development: Self Developed film using Tetenal C41 color development press kit in a Paterson Universal Tank using taco method, hung on shower curtain to dry on film clips. 

Scanning: Negative scanned with Epson V600 in two scans and merged back together in PhotoShop since the V600 doesn't natively support 4x5 scans in one pass.  Cropped in Lightroom 4.
