    I realized that moving the camera a couple feet and re-composing made an even more remarkable image?

    You know, IMHO "art" is kind of a weird thing. I'm not too sure it has anything to do with limitations or with convenience.

  15. Continuous Processing with Dektol or PolyMax RT???

    I have a bit of an odd question.

    Re: SP-445 - What Went Wrong

    I prefer tray processing but it just isn't always possible or practical to do it.
