    I remember reading that St. Ansel continued working on one image, felt he got it right after thirty years. I like pyro with a little crackers and cheese. It seems to take the edge off of things.

    Another perspective, think of all the people whose greatest concern is what will happen on the next soap. I find this more challenging.

    I've read that about "Moonrise Over Hernandez". Someone interviewed a close friend of Adams, and remarked that he seldom "manipulated" his images in printing. I wish I could remeber who was being interviewed, but he gave "Moonrise" as an example; "That image was manipulated like crazy. After years, right up to his death, he never stopped thinking about it and re-printing it with some sort of "new" printing modification."
    Carpe erratum!!

    He also, according to her, laid in his deathbed caressing his prints as if they were long lost children.

    When you can do that, I suppose they are perfect.

    He was an ok printer, but not a great one. I've seen some beautiful prints of his and I've seen dark and dingy overprinted ones. I think his obsessive agonizing for endless hours over a print was more affectatious posturing than application of skill.

    Yes, you can end up overworking prints and just fussing and fussing.
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
