    Incredible crepuscular rays. I dread to think what an HDR version would look like.

    Seen in your FSA/OWI Favorites set. (?)

    I prefer the non-restored version. The detail in the dark is what makes this photo truly spectacular.

    ElizabethMartin, the detail is still visible in the restored version. Flickr just has a bad habit of making the thumbnails darker than the original image.

    I found these on the internet this summer. I thought they had shut down the site, but I’m so glad that someone is letting them be on flickr. There is one of boats in shadows on the beach by an unknown photog I hope to find.
    Thank you!

    Those awesome beams of light are from cigarette smoke. To bad smoking is banned inside places now. But it sure looked cool back then!

    At the risk of asking a silly question, why is light streaming in only through some of the window panes? Are these the panes whose glass is missing?

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/vivekk00/] If you look at the print, you can see that there is a window set back from the lattice. That’s a detail that gets lost in this scan.

    Ok now I see. Without that detail it looks like the lattice is the window. In which case I didn’t understand why THAT bright a light would shine in through just a few panes. Thanks very much for the explanation.
