    I found your picture oK. Looks fine to me. A couple of extra bright surfaces are not that noticeable, at least in a small size you presented. The "shadow" areas look fine. Exposure looks correct.

    At last the negatives are back, and it seems that I have the shot almost perfect.

    One way: Start with an incident meter, then bracket above and below to be sure
    Another way: Use the Zone System by putting the darkest detail in Zone 2 or Zone 3. Then an exposure with the brightest in Zone 7 or Zone 8. Also take the information from the two sentences and determine the exposure.
    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
