    When I look in a mirror I see not a reflection. Why would that be?

    After reading all of these interesting accounts of alternate realities and other horrific side effects I have decided to change my mind.

    It is NOT OK to flip the negative! The consequences are simply too hard to handle.

    Good policy. It doesn't seem a good idea to mess with the quantum foam unless absolutely neccesary.

    Agreed... good policy... and I might even start looking into the front side of the mirror instead of the back side!

    But isn't why photographers are paid the big bucks to make something look better than reality?

    Well, mine are. But nobody's paid me for one yet this century.

    On the subject of flipping, if I take a picture with some human action across the frame, it generally looks correct with more space on the right. As I live in the Western Hemisphere, I take it this is influenced by the fact that I read text left to right? If I was from an Eastern Country where text is read right to left, would such a picture seem to have a better composition when flipped?

    Two different negatives

    Three Boys, Three Snags, New Years Day, 2008
    Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park

    One as a carbon print (left) and one as a platinum/palladium print (right).

    If you are going to reverse an image, make sure you print one not reversed to preserve the balance of the universe!

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Nice attempt, Vaughn.

    But the lighter tones of one of them will still throw the scale out of balance, and the universe with it. I like your strategy, though.
