Remember Kodak photo CD's? It was a format for scanning negatives or positives onto cd. I thought that was the cat's meow. However at $2 (I think it was) per photo I found I had to pick and choose what to put on the one disc I ever had made. This photo as far as photo's go wasn't very good.
I had been Panning with the Hurricane and Lancaster as they took off together. This was in the day we were a lot closer to the runway. I put it on photo cd because I liked the angle of the Hurricane and hoped someday I could do something with it. The photo languished on the cd for some time until I started learning about photography on the computer. I went back to this photo and started manipulating. Fortunately the resolution on these photo's was quite high. I started cropping until it was just the Hurricane in the photo. At the time I thought the landing gear partially retracted look awkward so I decided to see what I could do with it. Taking it out seemed to be a reasonable option. It was one of my first attempts at it and I was very happy with the result. I've since used it as a centre piece on a web page and on some business cards. The good thing about the photo cd? I still have it and the photo because I have now gone through the same process with this photo twice, second time using skills I had learned since then. I may even do it again because I am sure I can improve.
Film. Not even sure what camera it would have been.... Maybe my Minolta 7000i or something like that.
