    Re: Developer capacity, D-23, and dilution

    Seconding Ken here. I use D-23 1-1 all the time and have no problem getting all the contrast I can stand, and that's using a diffusion enlarger and Ilford MG Warmtone, which is softer than MG...
  2. Re: Lee Filters - anyone using these or Cokin et al squares?

    A minus of the square Lee polarizing filters is that they sometimes force you to rotate the lens hood along with them in order to get the degree of polarization you want. The result is that you have...

  6. Re: Post your homage to another photographer (any format)

    I'm thinking you can guess who I had in mind when I made this one. I cheated a little by doing it in Photoshop, instead of the darkroom.

    I really enjoyed seeing your work, Gregg. Don't let retirement get in the way of your photography any more than it has to!

    I'll look forward to updates as your exploration continues.

    The way I think about filters, which I think Doremus was getting at, is in terms of adjusting (usually accentuating) contrast to make something stand out.

    Re: What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    Very nice, David.

    Those are hemlock trees, are they not? Around here most of the hemlocks are under attack from the wooly adelgid (Adelges tsuga) and are in decline, which
    is a great shame.
