"Exposure" is just a set of numbers, an aperture and a shutter speed; it's meaningless without context, IMO. I never care that someone's camera settings are, say,1/125 sec at f/8, big deal.
What matters is what the exposure is based upon and why. So, to me the system used (or the route taken) to arrive at IT and the subsequent negative development scheme is what gives the exposure context, it's what makes the exposure an interesting "thing" to discuss among other like-minded analogers. It is more relevant to say that I would arrive at a different outcome, based on my visualization-------for me at this point, there is no labor involved with determining my exposure settings; the ZS makes for quite a fluid thinking process. Hell, I labor more over focusing the dam camera and other such taxing artistic decisions.
