    Paul, this is long over due as I rarely chime in. I've been admiring and following your WP work since you started posting. I really appreciate how you balance your aesthetic sensibility and the technical. One is not carrying the other. Balance... its what I strive for. Keep up the excellent work. Inspiring!

    Today it was a balmy 60F so I took my 8X10 Deardoff down into the woods and photographed some of the fern-covered trunks.
    This photo is a wet plate collodion image, made with the Symmar-S 240mm Schneider lens. I don't normally use this lens for tintypes because its TOO sharp, but today it worked better than my Darlot lens, which was too soft to capture the detail I wanted, plus it flares badly in challenging light. Its a three minute trek from this spot back to my darkroom, so it is taking about 8 minutes from the moment I leave the darkroom till I am back in it, ready to develop the plate.

    You can see a larger version of the photo here: https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4755/3...ec6ae308_k.jpg

    Thank you very much! I'm still getting acquainted with the process, but I hope I can become really good at it. I love its aesthetics.

    New piece today, on Aluminum: Amaryllis 'Ruby Star' on 8X10.
