Framed

FramedI like what you've seen here. IMHO cropping off the brickwork on the left gives a more graphic result that looks stronger.

more pool rescues!

more pool rescues!Carol, you consistently produce stunning macro shots that amaze me in their variety. If you don't miind me saying so, I think sometimes they would benefit from a bit more Photoshop sharpening. This particular set is quite soft, not unpleasant in itself as a technique, but for preference I would have crisped them up a bit with Unsharp Mask.

Leica 1934-Test scene

Leica 1934-Test sceneThat's got huge potential as an image, but as it stands I think it does show the inherent problem with older wide aperture lenses - lack of contrast due to internal reflections. So IMHO the options might be to go for soft colour or if sticking to black and white to extend development by 20% and print on a much harder grade of paper. If scanned, the contrast needs to be upped a fair bit.

It's definitely worth trying these things out, so I hope that you find these comments helpful.
