Very good. Is that a scanned negative or a scannned print? Its only that I've used XP2 a fair amount, but I'm going off the way it scans (on my equipment anyway): it seems to give - oddly enough - an over-grainy result.

Hello Peg. This is scanned from an A4 darkroom print. I use an inexpensive flatbed scanner for all of my epz work. I've never quite been able to get my b/w prints to look as good on a monitor as they do "in the flesh". Sometimes they look a little grainer, sometimes they just lack the sparkle that the prints have, which is a pity.

Hmmm. Thanks. I was looking at a some prints in an arts centre at Hawick recently and thought that there's nothing digital that can compare with them. It's also why the greater photographers were often 'made' by greater printers.

This looks like a pretty skilled treatment.

I gave away most of my darkroom (kept the developing things) a couple of years ago - dammit. All the best.

watcha Michael,
certainly is, I like the enormity of the building against the solitary figure, well seen and taken.

Gorgeous. It really emphasises the masonry.

Great work Michael - would love to see the hard print as I would guess it is a thing of beauty.

You have a nice panel coming along here - ARPS maybe?

Thank you Mick, always a pleasure to hear from you, and thank you also Jon.

No, nothing special in mind Bruce. I wander round until I see something that catches my eye and I take a photograph of it and well, that's it. Now that you've mentioned it I can see there's a certain look to my recent work but it's purely coincidental - unless it's a subconscious thing. Having said that, there is one thing I keep an eye out for - words; for some reason I love photographs which feature words. Don't ask me why though - I haven't a clue Smile

The juxtaposition of the word "GREAT" and the rather forlorn character on the bench works wonderfully.

Well captured.

Cheers, GRAHAM

A brilliantly observed candid shot. The smallness of the figure also works well in the picture. John
