He worked to roll back the boundaries of his imagination, pushing up toward the constellations he saw at the outer reaches of his mind...

Again at the Jantar Mantar observatory, Jaipur.

The instruments here were incredible, and really inspiring.

Lubitel 166, HP5, head metered using the sunny 16 rule.

The gaps look like giant pumpkin teeth

Amazing perspective. Really like it...

If I can add. I think that the person is a bit dark, and the contrast in the picture doesn't really jump out at me. Not sure how that would be fixed in the printing, but this is just about the only thing that detracts from the picture in my opinion.

What was the negative like in terms of the range of density?

The negative was pretty good - didn't want to overprocess it though. When I get around to darkroom printing, I'll probably underexpose it some, but add in some pretty heavy contrast to pull out the map detail.

As Lewis said, really odd to work out, that's why I like it and it stands out.

Must have been a fantastic sight to watch.

Fairly perfect metering too!

Wow. I was confused for a moment. But once I figured it out, it actually really simple.

I like it!

Liking the composition, its a bit of a midfuck trying to work out the orientation at first.

Cheers, yeah I know what you mean. I was semi-going for that, and semi trying to figure out how I could get that across in a square. I've decided I'm a fan.

Of square formats? They are pretty cool, till you try printing the buggers :P
