Canoe Prow, 19th Century Africa

This is a detail from a canoe prow, collected in Africa in the late 19th century, on display at the St. Louis Art Museum.  I'm still working on the look of pictures made with Leica I in 1925.  There is something very romantic about photographs from that era.

Technical: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-85mm f2.8-f4, ISO 800, 66mm @ f/4.0 @ 1/8s, handheld.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6, the converted to monochrome in Nik Silver Efex Pro using the blue filter with the Kodak Tri-X film setting.
