Fence Post and Shadow

This is another photo I recently had scanned. Gangneung doesn’t usually get much snow, but every few years a relatively large amount will fall. I made this out by Anmok Harbour, along the side of the road. I may go back later and crop this to 5:4 format and get rid of the pipe in the upper left, but this is not bad. Thoughts?
I used Kodak Ektar 100 and some camera for this photograph. I don’t often use Ektar because I rarely get colours I like, but this one worked out fine. Maybe the film just needs the proper light and exposure. I used cheap ‘vacation’ film on a recent trip to Seoul and got 50MB scans done of a few photos that I really liked. But cheap film is cheap film and not even a high-end professional scanner can make it look really good. This Ektar, however, has very detail and fine grain. You get what you pay for . . . .

  1. There is no including it, as that's where the film ends. I think in the print I once had the pipe was cropped out because it bothered me a bit. It's not contributing to the composition.
