Bien fait, dude.

I noticed a conspicuous bias towards B&W, too :)

Yes, Kevin, I am a man of biased opinions. I would hate to be representative of something else than myself! ;)

Wow. Pretty well like a complaint on my racial outlook from Hitler or ethical advice from the Tonya Harding School of Business. Thank you for your participation, Christopher... it's meant so much. Same for you, 'J' and Keith. So sad.

And Arigram, you really need to jump in with some more unsubstantiated insults, lies or whatever, or your amusemsnt will end. < Plonk. >

I give it to you, you have a real talent there and
I am happy to see you aren't letting it waste!
Unfortunately I can't be part of the show, I am mere
You have my sincere applause though.

your faithful fan,
with lots of admiration,

Now that Hitler has been invoked, it's time to close this thread.

Thread reopened after heavy-handed moderation. ;)

I liked the article, by the way. :)

moderation? butchery? why bother? those who followed the thread are aware of what transpired, now it looks like heavy handed censorship

I kind've slightly agree with Ray; why not simply take all those posts and move them into a new thread entitled "Here we go again." Those posts were simply off topic.

I guess now I have to say it again, since my last post was deleted: Michel, I really appreciated your article and your perspective of 35mm rollfilm photography as a unique way of seeing.

Loketretta has something to do with the Eddas, so I will suppose it refers to the god Loki's fierce battles... Ole, you have the wisdom of the Havamal.

Now all of you go out and shoot some 35mm!

It's got to do with the Eddas - it's the story of what happened when the Æsir finally got fed up with Loki when his transgressions went way over the line. Punishment in those days were rather more literal and severe than in our civilised age...

I found it apt since the gods were willing to put up with very much from Loki, but when action was finally taken (after several warnings), the reaction was swift - and appropriate.

I agree with Ray. Shoulda locked this thing down DAYS ago. Don't know why we didn't.

Alright, it's been locked, cleaned up, and unlocked, so let's stay on topic.

excuse me Christopher
locking this thread is certainly not what i meant

locking a thread is just another form of heavy handed censorship

The way HWHBI (he who has been ignored) was carrying on, it could have been stopped sooner though.

you and others kept it going

why respond?

Apparently, you came not to praise 35mm, but to bury it. Your article is full of factual errors (no digital sensor will ever approach the resolution of 35mm, let alone the tonality), and your prose is so obtuse as to beg the question of what you are even trying to say!

This is the sort of "essay" that 35mm can do without.

In regards to the "Heavy Handed Censorship," I would like to reiterate what has been said in many different threads that this is Sean's website. He owns it. He makes the rule. And he regulates it the way he feels is best for his site. If you pays your money to go watch a baseball game at a ballpark and you start cursing and insulting others and causing a rukus, do you not think that you won't be escorted out of there??????

Now back on topic... I like what Michel has to say about 35mm being a different way of seeing, a whole different set of criteria on composing, choosing film, paper and printing to achieve a desired look to a print. As an art student (many years ago :( ) in drawing classes, I gravitated towards conte crayons because I liked the look I was getting from them. I never really liked my charcoal drawings, nor with regular drawing pencils. My second choice in drawing utensils was carpenter pencils - I would go to a hardware store and buy a bunch of them.
I liked the "Look" I got from my choices. Many photogers like the Look of 35mm. It is a choice to make.
