    Go back, reshoot several times, bracketing with longer and longer exposures. You have multiple locations in your profile so maybe you can't go back. In that case bracket when you shoot, starting with what you think is the right exposure, then two stops more. You can make a pretty good print if you are only one stop off. Do this until you start realizing how far off you are frequently. Then shoot at that compensation in the future.

    At some point you will see there is an advantage to film testing or setting your own ev.

    Don't respond about film cost unless you are shooting larger than 7x17. Just think how many negatives you have thrown away with improper exposure.

    John, I don't really do landscape stuff. These aren't situations that can be redone (nor are they the most valuable shots either).

    One thing I was throwing out there was how many people always hit max black vs how many don't always hit it and are okay with it?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Start printing platinum/palladium and your idea of max black goes out the window. Not every image has to have paper white and absolute black in it. Many times it's preferable to have long scale softer prints. Even for night shots.

    Pre vs Post Exposure

    Pre vs Post. IIRC the results are the same although
    the exposures differ. Why exposures would differ
    is a mystery to me. It may have to do with
    the building of the latent image. Dan
