    Re: Zone I SET

    Doremus, I’ve found something interesting in this regard. When I tested HP5+ sheet in HC-110B with step tablet in camera, measuring fb+fog at the rebate, the results agreed with your comment. Testing...

  3. Re: Let's see your favorite mountains & ridgelines

    I don't mean to be critical, and I don't think anyone who may have noted the error really cares, but Mt. St. Helens is not in the North Cascades and actually is in the southern part of Washington....

    Re: White Rim Road - Mice?

    Maybe "recycle" was the wrong word. Make that the "recirculate" button.

    Re: White Rim Road - Mice?

    Just a note on this. A few recent years ago, my 4Runner had some mice get into it while parked in my garage. Turned out they found access to the glove box via the 'recycle' duct (that's the duct that...

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    John, most color films do not take to high contrast scenes well, requiring an exposure that renders desirable highlights and lets the shadows fall where they will, but I can suggest a technique to...
