    Gorgeous shot Dan, but it’s tough to look at it up side down…sharp angles I can handle, but this is a bit much!

  2. Brilliant shot Dan, I also really like the cropped version that’s in Manifesto. As for the angle, crooked is the new straight, I like it!

    Just bought my first Leica (M6). I absolutely love it.

    Love the way you can take this image in in multiple ways… as a surfing image, but also as an abstract study in tones. It’s beautiful.

    Nice shot Dan, a unique perspective! Like the grain, did you shoot at 3200 or pull it back?

  7. I like it. Far far away from stock photography, thank god.

    Dan, a random Q: do you process your tri-x yourself or send it out? Do you scan from tri-x negs or from darkroom prints?

      I do both depending on what I’m doing. Quantity of film, deadline, etc, probably goes to lab. I’m setting up a darkroom in NM as we speak, so I’ll be running most of the 35mm B&W myself. Lab scans film as do I.

    Interesting photo Daniel, I like it. Does anybody else the the face in the photo made by the surfer and the wave or do I need to put down the crack pipe.

    This shot reminds me of the image they used for call of duty black ops. Minus the .45’s of course.

    Hope all is well on your end Mr. Dan. I like this surfing shot my friend. Good energy to you.
