    How does this happen? Need help.

    This might be me just being stupid, but I need help. I actually shot these images a few years ago. They are from a cabin that a friend of mine and I built while working on a farm.

    So the question. Both of these images a shot on the same roll, Acros 100 at 100, and they were taken back to back. The light did not change. They were developed in Rodional. I did bracket them. The one that I really love is the higher contrast one. Why are the two images different, technically. Both are scanned and nothing done to them. The scanner scanned both with the same settings.

    Is it simply underexposed a little, but then how did the high lights look so good.

    To paraphrase Flotsam: "That is called latitude. It is supposed to be there."

    2nd shot is a better composition.

    How many stops or shutter speed was the difference between the two exposures? Each stop is either half or double the exposure depending on which way you go. Also your camera angle is different so if you were using a camera's meter and/or any "auto" feature the exposures may have been influenced by either or both.

    Not to question your story, but it almost looks like the top one had a yellow filter and the other was unfiltered. This is interesting.

    When you underexpose, the highlights will retain detail. The shadows will go dead.

    I know they will retain detail, but if the higher contrast one has less exposure the highlights should not be so high on the scale.

    Possibly the less exposure just moved the values down to the toe more which made the mid values drop low and the high values still stay on the steep slope, which would not affect the highlightes as much.
