    Michael you know what you’re doing. Did you stop to f90 and take the picture?

    Love it. Still hoping someone will one day revive an Ansel Adams' thread from 1957.

    The two options that come to mind are:

    A split filter, which is a plus diopter cut in half.

    The other involves tow separate shots on two sheets of film and some heroic work in Photoshop.

    Note that the DSLR folks do stuff like that all the time.

    It's like Rip Van Winkle who fell asleep in the Catskills for twenty years only to wake up and find that everything had changed. Well, not everything.
