Southern Portugal on TMax 100

Our recent trip to Portugal and Spain included some time in the Alentejo Region. Here's a sample of photos. All were taken on TMax 100 and developed in HC 110.

The hilltop town of Montsarraz:

It's the "unofficial" dilution, one-half of dilution b, and double the time (as a starting point).

Great series of photos, Steve. For some reason, though, they look even better on your flickr site.

Thank, Joe. I have a flickr contact who said he thought the photos looked better on iPernity. Go figure.

You have done an excellent job here, Steve.
I was thinking yesterday about using B&W in my next trip.

Thank you, Raid. I took about 50-50 bw and color on ths trip. Outside of Lisbon, most of the color film was shot with my Oly XA, and the bw with the Leica.

I have been closely following your posts , and I must compliment you for the very nice series of photos from my country.
Keep posting !
Regards
Joao
PS- allow me a slight correction: the "olive press" is actually a deep water well with a device ("nora") that brings water upwards trough a chain of small iron buckets - those are visible in the photo; it is powered by an engine or, as in the past, by an animal (ox, donkey).

Thank you, Joao! You have a beautiful country and we look forward to returning to see more of it. And thanks for the correction on the "olive press".

Lovey tonality and composition! Thanks for sharing.

I'm with Helen--TMax is now my favorite b&w film and has been for a while. I use both 100 and 400 and think they are both wonderful. I develop them in D76.

Thanks, Huub. All of the photos were taken with an M4-2. The photos in Evora were taken with a Canon 35/2.0 (second version). All the others were taken with a Canon 50/1.8.

Nice set of photos with a lot of tonality and good contrast. Did you scan the negs or the prints and which setting did you use (dpi)?

Thanks. These are all negative scans, on an Epson V500 flatbed scanner, and scanned at 2400 dpi into TIFF files. I make minor adjustments in PS, then resize and save as .jpeg images for web posting. I print directly from TIFF files, but haven't printed any of these photos yet.

Thanks. HC 110 is now my go-to developer for landscapes.

Nice pictures. Been using a lot of TMX100 myself since Efke 25 went away. I am becoming very fond of it. I develop in D76 but I may try HC110 dilution h after having looked at your images. The obviously came out very nicely.

Three photos of an olive grove near Monte Sarraz, Alentejo, Portugal. Very, very old trees.
