Large format week continues!

I think I really can't complain about this one. I was watching the cars to make sure I got complete trails from the headlights and taillights. I seem to recall I was hoping for a Max train as well...

As with all of these this is scanned using my incredibly crummy HP Scanjet 4010. This scanner only has a thin strip in the middle for 35mm. I made a moveable mask with a clear holder in it that lets me slide the 4x5 film past the narrow opening in steps. Four scans give me four overlapping strips which I combine with an ancient copy of Photoshop CS (the original CS) using the "Photomerge" feature. If you look too closely you can see a few artifacts. Given the ghetto equipment and techniques used I think it is a reasonable result. I'd love to see an actual good scan of this!

Upon reflection, I had another go at this one. The new version is here:
