    Steve, That's a very dramatic shot. I think there's too much foreground that doesn't add to the picture. The water area is the subject. You can crop off 1/3 of the picture from the bottom and not...

    Don't assume you need to turn the polarizer to full impact, Because a car has a lot of bends and turns, the polarizing effect will shift and change the way it works on the various surfaces of the...

    Try 2400. 300 is too low. That could be causing the banding.

    Re: High Lights scanning problem

    Either you clipped the highlights in the original negative, or there's a problem with SF. (I have never used SF). Have you tried Epsonscan on manual, flat scan with the histogram set at 0 and 255?
