    AND ... I just read the links Thomas posted. Don't mind me, folks. I'll be in the corner with the dunce's cap.

    Here are those links, again.

    You can see the thread here: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum162/...ckstarter.html

    It is for a building and the purpose is to build the professional capacity of the experience (darkroom, equipment for alt processes, etc.). I support this because it is FREE to register (you obviously pick up your own costs). If he was charging for it, I'd just say it was like any other business, but because it's free, and Bill is obviously putting a ridiculous amount of his own effort, resources and labour into it....I'm in!

    I'll start a classified thread right away here.

    ....I actually changed my mind and I thought that someone who knows Bill should start the thread. I will add to it, but I felt it was a little inappropriate to set my own opinionated tone to the thread and maybe even misrepresent the project in some way. Any takers?

    Jordan,

    I wouldn't mind starting it, but somehow we'd have to come up with a way to link our efforts to the classifieds, where we're supposed to sell stuff.

    What do you think would be a good solution for that? One thread to link together all of the items offered for sale to support Bill's project?

    Thomas...

    Yeah, that would probably be best. Maybe one of the moderators would make it a sticky for the next couple weeks until the kickstarter part of the fundraising ends?

    FS: Print to help Bill Schwab Kickstarter

    Ironical as it were... I had never heard of photostock before joining this forum, and even when seeing it, the name of it always made me think it was just another gathering of photography equipment sales guys selling the latest gear, I had never looked into it Because of the name, but now that I know I'm really interested, how exciting, and if its year round that would be great.

    Glad to have learned something today...

    So was this shot on Tmax too? It still doesn't SUPER pop but certainly has more highlights and I think it's a nice image.

    I just realized who you were. I'm glad this sold, it's a great cause.

    Stone,

    I think it's safe to say our tastes are different. I personally enjoy a much more muted tonal palate than you do. My goal isn't to 'wow' but to present a bit of mood, mystery, and some subtle beauty.

    What 'pops' in your opinion is much too high in contrast for my tastes. It's how we see things, I guess.
