    Good points! I will keep that in mind. I don't plan on using it like aloe, at least .

    Watch getting into situations where you damage the plants, such as tearing the leaves and vines or digging the roots. That how my immunity went away, a large enough dose of urishiol will do you in.

    I'd say Virginia Creeper (5 leaves). Definitely not poison Ivy.

    Another PSA: if you're regularly wading through the stuff, in the name of domestic harmony, think about segregating your wash away from your wife's clothes in case she's a little more sensitive to urishiol than you are.

    Don't ask me how I know this.

    Brand new to LF, this is the fourth photograph I've made. Fujinon 150/5.6, Intrepid 4x5 mkIV, Ilford Hp5 at box speed developed in ID-11 and shoddily scanned and stitched together on my Epson V600. Would appreciate any criticism or advice that could help me in the future. Click image for larger version.

    Nice image. As to advice, it's hard to tell anything technical from a web-size scan. Just off hand, it seems like your contrast could use some work, as well as your development - I read the sky as showing uneven development, most likely from insufficient agitation. Of course that could be the stitching you referred to. But I really do like the composition and the overall feel of the image.

    Thank you for the advice. I don't think the issue is with the development—my negative looks solid—i think you're correct it's an issue with the scanning but that's something I don't really know how to trouble shoot. 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?

    I know the woes of trying to scan 4x5 on a V600. Other than that a very nice image, anything I could criticize would be nit picking. It very easy to miss things when you are out taking pictures.

    Very nice start! I agree with the above that the sky appears to reveal some uneven development, but that could simply be scanning & stitching. Personally, I would like to see the foreground rocks (the ones sticking out of the lake) larger and of more dominance. Don't know if it would have even been possible--given available lenses--I would have eliminated the submerged rocks and used a little back tilt causing those foreground rocks to "loom" a bit. Placement of the focus plane would have been somewhat tricky, but I think it could work. All that said, it's one man's opinion and simply that...an opinion! I think it's a very nice image nonetheless.
