    Miha, the tactile qualities of a print is something I have never thought about, but will take your word for it.

    I know this Clive. For you a good photo can also be appreciated in a magazine. And to be honest I would prefer an original copy of the Vu magazine with the picture of the Falling soldier taken by Capa to a FB print made from the original negative in 2013. What would be your pick?

    Miha, that is a very big question, as there are so many great photographers and images to choose from. I suppose as a photographer’s photographer I think the following is my favourite.

    http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=mil...9,r:0,s:0,i:82

    Not because of a particularly great composition, but rather a compromise between so many different photographic factors. If you view an enlargement of this image the profile of the near woman’s face has a slight dark background between her and the woman in the distance. A fraction of a mm differential (the difference between a good photograph and a really great one).

    Clive, I'm still interested in your choice as stated in my previus post - an original edition of the Vu magazine or a 2013 FB print from the original Capa's negative?

    As for HCB favourite, there are many, but I prefer his more 'static' potos.

    p.s. I see that my question in #42 was not very clear, sorry

    Miha, sorry for the confusion, but I'm not that familiar with Vu magazine. But as pointed out in your previous post I prefer a good photograph (however it is printed) to an FB print or any other version.

    It's the magazine where Capa's famous photo was first published: http://www.creativereview.co.uk/imag...10/vu_capa.jpg versus http://www.nytstore.com/Fallen-Soldi...36_p_5941.html

    The Capa picture in question has a debate behind it about posed or original. I don't know the outcome, but Capa was a very good photographer. He kept Magnum afloat with his gambling. Incidentally, the thing I like about Capa is the inscription he had inside his helmet that said something along the lines of “Robert Capa, great correspondent and lover.”

    While we are at it, what's the thickness of the ADOX MCP paper? The data sheet provided by ADOX says 270 ug which is valid for the old AGFA papers.

    I got a different figure for the new Adox PE paper for which I'm not sure though most certain:
    220g/m² (paper+PE foils)

    I believe that 220g/m2 is incorrect. Ilford state 190g/m2 for their regular RC paper and I read that ADOX feels a little thinner than MGRC, although I believe this was only stated once by one user here at APUG.
