    "The art of photography is the development not of the film but of the photographer."

    Re: Just for your pleasure

    Both are very nice. I'm guessing that the computer screen doesn't do a very good job of doing justice to that particular process (or any for that matter).

    Some of the suppliers of glass bottles offer the black bakelite caps with polyethylene liners. Those are very nice. I always get a bag of them if the bottles come with caps that have the paper liners...

    Good to know. Who sells it 20 pounds at a time?

    BTW for very high contrast situations, I dilute stock D-23 1:3 with water (using 100 ml of stock for one sheet of 4x5) and develop it in a tray...

    Re: Info needed on old lenses from my dad

    Of course, once you know what they are, you can research commercial used equipment sites to get an idea of their retail value.

    Pictures are important-- condition is critical.

    I often burn in edges and corners, when they are too light, with a grade or so lower than the basic exposure. Done properly, it doesn't over-darken the lower tones but it lowers the high tones to...

    Re: What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    I like both of your Staten Island pictures very much. The first (B/W) one, that sky really makes it. You must have used
    an ND filter or such to get the long exposure. Nicely done.

    I like this very much. As rendered here, it kind of reminds me of a photograph from the late 19th century. Something about the tonality.

    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...
