    So test for yourself.

    IMO one reason examples are hard to come by is that most people don't do formal testing, they go shooting have a problem, find a fix, and then throw out the trash and move on.

    I do know from experience that, yes, I can correct an open shade shot on daylight film in an enlarger but that life is easier when I filter for it.

    I think part of it is that when I filter I use a filter factor which means I actually get all the layers exposed well, I don't get say film's that have underexposed blues or reds.

    Using filters (1) forces me to be honest with myself about the exposure settings I really need and (2) preserves the under/overexposure latitude of the film and (3) makes printing easier.

    Seriously, why would you expect us to keep or show off our trash?

    No idea what you mean by that. Thanks for your information though.

    You are welcome.

    The phase simply means that when I have a photo that obviously fails because of problems with exposure, lack of a filter, focus, or loading the sheets in the holder emulsion down or whatever else might go awry; I feel no need to put more time into "saving" it or sharing it.

    I learn my lesson, throw away the ruined film, and move on. I'm happy to share the lesson but the examples I learned from are gone.

    I see. Perhaps someone else had done some testing though. Like Athiril's before and after example with the polariser. That one is really astounding. Cheers

    Athiril, do you know why the greens in post #37 are much more muted whereas the previous example with a polariser has such electric greens?
    Great images though. Definitely worth getting a polarising filter.
