Winter Weather Photos – Saganashkee Slough Photo 1

Here is today’s featured photo presentation of winter weather photos, with today’s presentation another of a set of photos of a snowy scene of the largest Chicago area snow of the year 1983 season of Saganashkee Slough near Palos Hills in Illinois. To brighten up these late winter days, I am featuring fine photos of winter weather, so we can wish the winter weather was just in the photo, and that we wouldn’t have to live it. If you remember the days of film, it was really a great idea to develop your film while the photos were freshly taken. If you did not, the following example of the finished photo was the result. Looking at the negative, it shows up fogged out and tinting makes the color look unacceptable. There is hope! See below where I used the program HDR Project 2018 by Franzis Verlag to rescue these color photos. This photo would have been lost if it were not for the processor, and what a loss! The photo depicts yet another great winter scene. Date – March 20, 1983

Photo #1 taken with a Nikon EM-through a Nikon 26 mm lens, filter=Polarizer, Aperture=8 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/30th second, loaded with Konica Fast ISO (ASA) 400 Color 135-20 Negative Film (stale film) processed with C-41 Processing Chemicals, and a Type C Print using the RA-4 enlargement paper process, onto a 4X6″ semi-gloss print.

Photo #2 is the same above photo, digitally rescued by the software program HDR Project 2018 (64-bit) – Version 6.64.02783 by Franzis Verlag on the “Architecture Faded Structure” setting.

FACT:  As you can see in photo 2, the photo was not only washed out , but purpled out, because the layer on the negative was effected first with fog and with the compensation of the most sensitive colors, in this and most cases the stale developing of the film, it shows a purple layer over the whole photo while trying to develop the photo. The case in this case results in a purple hue, although depending on the case of light effect can range anywhere on the spectrum, depending on which light shows through. There are very nice programs out there, including the one I use, which is HDR Project 2018 (64-bit) – Version 6.64.02783 by Franzis Verlag on the “Architecture Faded Structure” setting. This German company in addition to this great program, also offers many great photo processing programs that are great, including two other ones that I use frequently, BLACK WHITE Projects 5 and ANALOG Projects 3. All of these programs are well worth the money, unless you are fortunate to see them available on the Daily Software: Giveaway of the Day. The process of digital restoration of photos is an art, at the same time using science, and opens up a vast array of features to level your object’s virtual essence without compensating total loss of color. I will be featuring rescued photos for the duration of this year’s winter scenes.

Another fine snowy view photograph to follow including the great scenic beauty of winter weather. It is going to be quite an end to winter, so join me all the way until the first day of spring!

  1. Wow, what a difference that made! This is such a beautiful photo; it really gives me a peaceful feeling when I look at it.

  2. How spoiled we are today with our pictures. You took pictures with a hope and a prayer that when developed they would be perfect. It is good you have the tools to fix the negatives. This is good winter picture
