Masset Station


Another set of tone mapped images from the decommissioned Canadian Forces Station in the Village of Masset – my earlier post can be found here. If you are interested in the base, or I guess officially it was a ‘station’, then there is a lot of information at this link, including the different functions of these buildings that were opened in 1971 and 1972.

Again, these treatments are rife with learning curve issues (I need less of that halo, for starters), but I find somewhat unexpectedly that I really like some of the high contrast b&w effects on subjects like this. I don’t need a steady diet of them by any means, but they are nice for a change, and I suppose not all that different from some of my earlier post-production efforts using simpler software on mostly natural subjects.

Canon 5Dii, Canon 50mm/f1.4 lens, ISO 100, f4.5, various exposure speeds. These are all tone mapped from single exposures.

    • I am not surprised you like the subject matter, and am pleased that you like my rendering of it. This tone-mapping works so well for this kind of subject, wish I had discovered it years ago.

    • Hi Andy – thank you very much. To show how much I know I had to look up solarized! I vaguely remember something about it from my darkroom days of 30 years ago. Anyway, I appreciate your comment.

    • Why thank you Joseph! I have been having fun with these conversions (along with some frustrations of learning the software). I am glad that they are pleasing to some people other than me.

    • Hi Nina – thank you very much, that is really appreciated.
      FYI, when I clicked on your gravatar and name links I get to a blocked (private) space. I nearly deleted this comment at that point but gave it one more try on the link you provided. You might want to fix those links as they can be very off-putting, whether true or not.
      Thanks again! I am slow on passing these along, but eventually get there.

      • I should add that experience of being blocked in accessing your blog came when clicking on the email notification I received of your comment, not now that I try it again on your comment when approved for posting here. Which is strange.

    • Thank you Ken. That first shot is my favourite too. This was more by way of snapping a few shots with a couple of people standing and waiting, bemusedly, for me to hurry up and lets get back on the road. So I was extra happy with the way that one turned out, not having time to think about what I was up to.
