  1. Poll: Re: Some Darkroom questions, mostly on enlargers

    I have used the Omega D with the "flying saucer" cold light head and found it acceptable, but I moved to a Saunders Lx etc. B&W head which I liked more. Better build.
  2. Re: why are there no "modern" super fast LF lenses?

  11. Re: Which State is the Best State for Landscape Photographers to Live?

    New Mexico. Just over 2 million mostly hospitable people with 5 great cultures. So lots of lonely spaces. Many Hernandezes if you look closely. And--the light! Strong and mysterious.
