Nice composition. The contrast is a little flat but there are lens filters for film that really help with contrast issues that are inherent particularly in black and white film photography.
Samarth: thanks laurie... still learning the ropes...

Maybe flat or just maybe a bit too soft for garden equipment. As you know I have done some scanning to digital recently. Found that b&w scans well if it was a glossy. Scanning from colour still OK if the picture is glossy (sometimes) but normally soft if the original is a matt. One of the other issues is that the picture on the scanner bed is small (post card or 6 x 4) and then is saved to a larger file by the scanner. Result is loosing detail and many a times blobby noise.
Samarth: my scans were done by the guy who developed the negatives (and he didnt do a good job of that either)... many thanks for the advice, will definitely keep it in mine for future projects...

Hmm... it's an alright from me. Getting a bit smudgy towards the bottom (but as you said - it's probably the guy who developed/scanned fault). Other than that - not a really striking image in B&C because of the lack of real tonal range (there's a tonal gradient towards the top but that doesn't add much for me). Overall, it's alright.
Samarth: thanks, had to put down 5 this week and this one was the least favourite...
