Square view of the Balcombe Viaduct

This ancient viaduct spans the Ouse Valley in Sussex, England.

I photographed the bridge for a book project on my visit there in June 2001.

This evening view was exposed with a Rolleiflex Model T, loaded with Kodak Tri-X—film that I later processed using a customize mix of Ilfotec HC liquid developer.

This high constrast developer yielded a very tight grain structure with excellent shadow detail, but tended to leave the sky a bit too dense. This flaw was easily corrected with Lightroom, where sky mask feature made for a clean fix.
