    Re: 2022 Your Favorite Image of You No rules

    Impressive home lab, Bernice, and nice photographs of the setup. The scopes I used were always my employer's property. I never used a 7104 but I used a 2467B with the microchannel plate. I used to...

    That brings back memories. We had a scope like that at my next-to-last job. I'd say you were loaded for bear with all those instruments!

    I like the AM picture, especially the chiaroscuro effect of the light and shade on the hillside on the right. It just feels like the morning to me.

    Re: Pentax digital spotmeter battery drain?

    I've done the "pack the meter with the trigger pressed" trick a time or two myself. I carry a spare battery, and give how I stuff the meter into the backpack a bit of attention when I put it away.

    Agreed. It's always nice to enjoy a successful photograph that violates one of the "rules of composition" (viz., "Don't break up the picture with horizontal lines").

    John, was an ND grad used in this photo? Or maybe just vignetting from a lot of rise. In any case, the effect is strange and unsettling. A very good image, I think.

    Andreios, the way you print and tone these images is perfect for the subject matter. They feel to me like pictures of "lost time", which is something that only photography can do, I think.
