    Superman9, I like that image. Very well seen & executed. Some may not like the deep shadows of the foreground rocks, wanting to see detail there, but I have no issue with it. Well done, an excellent first effort.

    I think you're off to a great start! Not sure what's up with the sky, the rest looks pretty good. It's your eye and your composition, although personally I agree with the other poster who would crop out the foreground submerged stones and use back tilt to make the foreground rocks a bit larger.

    Nitpicking aside, a great start!

    I think this is a fine photograph for an early attempt. I find the rocks underwater pleasing and would not remove them. If anything they should be printed a little lighter (along with the above-water rocks). I think the back tilt would add some extra drama.

    Nice shot superman. I've never stitched but I do have a V600. What settings do you use when you scan? It seems to me that both pictures should be scanned flat with no auto or manual adjustments at all, no black and white points, no levels,no ICE, no sharpening, etc. Then stitch the two pictures. Then do all the adjustments in post. Otherwise one scan is going to be slightly different than the other if done before stitching.

My guess is it has to do with the negative sitting unevenly but i could be wrong. On the contrast front, what would you do differently? Do you have any resources you could point me to with info relating to my contrast issues?
    My comment was based on what I could see on my screen, from a stitched negative scan. The contrast seems a bit flat on my side, with the shadow sides of the rocks somewhat below the straight line of the film's characteristic curve. But again, there's nothing substantive I could tell you from what I can see over the interwebs. As I said, overall it's a fine image, especially for a first attempt.

    I make levels adjustments and then move the negative but dont change the settings so in theory it should be the same right?

    Hey thanks! Do you have any tips for how to mount negatives for a V600?
