Ilford Delta 100
Handheld, developed by Ilford, negative scanned at 2700 on Acer Scanwit 2720S, sky burned in using Photoshop 7, reflections in water restored by dodging in same. A little other tweaking of highlight and shadow, USM.
Intended eventually as a full working replica of the 'first practical steamboat', engined in 1801. Built at Grangemouth by William Symington,, was used on the Forth & Clyde Canal for experiments by Lord Dundas, and was named after his daughter. Original was broken up in 1861. Seen in the basin below the Falkirk Wheel. Bit of a giveaway, this one...

Lovely tones; and I am envious of your prowess with PS.

Yes, Donald. Well visualized and very well executed.
Lots happening in the frame, but it still holds together.

I really like the tonal range in this shot and the juxtaposition of aged and modern subjects. Very well done!

I really like this shot. I found it because I was searching for photos taken by the Oly 35RD. Do you have any more shots posted that you took with this camera?
