    Its is the dry kits I had problems with -- not the wet.
  3. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    Also the concept of it being the best from the month is what makes it appealing, also -- a different take on "What's wrong with the print. How can I make it better?" discussions. This format can...

    Re: What's causing this fogging in my film?

    You got the most fogging on the corners of the hinge-end when you had the most light hitting those corners from the lens -- so internal flare with that extra light coming in with that wide-coverage...

    Re: What's causing this fogging in my film?

    It happen while film was in the holders -- probably in-camera. It is rare for light to leak past the light traps of the flap, even with no tape, let alone damaged tape...and the fog pattern does not...
  6. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    Good! I liked your best photograph of the month idea -- it was keeping the number of new images down to a level where we had time to critique each one before it got buried with additional images to...
  7. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    Ah, then you do not consider it your best from last month. A general critique thread is a good thing to have.

    I put the viewer's feet in the water, not mine. Well, usually! LOL!

    One cannot crop to a good image if one is not there. If the image does not do the subject justice, the image failed. Why did...

    Re: Problem with Pyrocat HD from PF

    I had the same problems, PF sent two replacement kits that I have not tried yet. I went back to B&S for a sure thing. Print material I'll take more chances on...negative processing, not so much.

    The only thing harder than trying to square-up a photo of an old building is trying to work on an old building! Looks like you'll be able to pull some good images out of that house!
  15. Re: Your Best Photograph from the Previous Month - Critique and Discussion Encouraged

    Lots of possibilities, tho I like the square image -- perhaps cropping the top a little less (keeping the round knot on the tree -- plays nicely off the water wheel, and keeping more of the black...

    Not exactly what AA was talking about, LOL. He knew the properties of the red filter, obviously, since he decided to switch from yellow to red...knowledge and practice fueled his epiphany.

    Without drawing it out, I would say about 20x28. That 4 inches all around the image. Another possibility is keeping to standard sizes and try 22x28.
