Good points here - although the subject was "The Perfect Negative". I very rarely - if ever ..? ... I don't think I've ever done that - even "very rarely" ...been able to envision something and capture it *perfectly* on the negative.Originally Posted by Ed_Davor
That is, an image perfect (read: exactly) the same as I had "pre-seen" it to be. I too, am surprised to a degree by the results as I open the tank from my own processing. There would not be that reaction if I was accustomed to making "perfect" negatives.... which I can guarantee I am not.
The merit of the work itself? At times less than I hoped - at times greater ... but no, not "perfect".
