    Re: Tiny Frog

    I used to have one that lived in the top of my patio umbrella (whether it was folded or not). I looked it up-- it's a "Gray Tree Frog" (like I needed to look it up to know that). That would explain...

    lassethomas, this is a fine picture. Great light, only photography can do this convincingly. I would love to see a print.

    Since the bridge is blue, like the sky, color filters may be of limited use. My suggestion would be to try using a polarizing filter on a day that is not too hazy or overcast. The effect of...

    Re: TF-3 Precipitate problems

    Thanks to everyone for their helpful input. I think I'll go with a packaged fixer from now on, clearly I'm not saving any money or time rolling my own, at this point.

    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.
