    Hello!
    Frenetically I have read so many threads here and learning so much. This is a great course for me.
    In daily life I am cook and work on vessels or in a luxury restaurant.
    For many years already I fooled around in my Dark-room, always B&W.
    One day I was very impressed by a photo of Gursky- I think he is German- of the harbour+surroundings of Salerno on which everything fits together, a sort of monumental peaceful composition.
    For me it is you feel immediately when you are making a good photo, but I should like to be able to wrest and can't find any good subject, most landscapes with some human activity to see.
    I like the classic films like Plus-X, FP4 or Tri-X very much, but can miss the Agfa barytine paper and hope the guys who work on a new Agfa-like paper will succeed as I have read here...Maybe one day I will afford me a 4x5 camera but 35mm and MF fulfill my needs quite. Concentration at the moment is the development of the negatives.
    So the coming time I will read.. and read.. and ..should like to pay for this side but I have no creditcard.
    With greetings from Maarten

    Welcome to the APUG jungle-try Adox and Foma paper some time, as they have that lovely old style quality you might like [RIP Forte].
