    I vote for sharp also, just a taste thing I guess. Some cropping, more from the bottom (gravel) than the top would be something I would try.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    I would say that both works really well, but I find the Darlot more interesting. It caught my eye.

    I'll have to go with the Symmar. I like soft focus or motion blur in some cases, but not this one. To me, it calls for sharpness in the rocks.
    But it's your photo, so please yourself first!

    I have to vote for the sharpe image. The soft image just looks, well, like an accident----I certainly like a little softness in moving water in an otherwise very sharp landscape. I guess I feel that "soft" images are better left for portrait photography. JMO.

    The soft one speaks to me, but then I'm kind of a pinhead. The nice thing is you can have it both ways. <{B^) Bill Barber

    Problem with these comparisons is that these are 2 very different compositions.

    How about using the sharp lens, and using a softer tonal palette ?

    Sometimes a new lens is too clinical, the soft lens too... obscure.

    But there IS a middle way !

    Wish to add my too cents in the form of a Negative scanned , that was taken by me last sunday at winchester, Ma. shot with a Bausch & Lomb - Planatograph F-8 4x5 size which turns out to be about 195mm,wi9th Fp-4 film at F32 at 9 seconds and no adjustment made used a 3x red filter again, developed in ID-11 with 1-3 dilution for 9-1/2 Minutes, I think there is a place still for these lenses : Lauren
