    Kev,
    I think here (APUG) you'll get better feed back on your photos than over there, they just don't "get it" over there.

    Well yeah constructive criticism seems like it'd be readily available on here. I've paid my subscription but my PayPal takes a week or two to transfer funds from my bank, but once i'm a fully fledged subscriber i'll put up a few. Got another two developed today. First time i've pushed HP5 to 800 and i'm happy with the way they turned out as i wasn't sure what to expect.

    OK one question.. i don't want o upload any photos if they've been too digitally manipulated. here's what i do to most of mine, generally don't do anything more unless i'm faffing about:

    Pre:
    Shoot
    Develop
    Scan

    Post:
    Desaturate (as my scanner sometimes adds slight colour variations)
    Levels
    Brightness/Contrast
    Shadows/Highlights
    Curves
    Smart Sharpen
    Sometimes clone out dust if they're too visible.

    Are those things in that list ok or does anything stand out as being "not allowed"?

    The idea is to do the minimum necessary to match your print.

    Or you can simply post your prints. There are a number of threads related to the disadvantages of just scanning your negatives. My original intent was to do as you described but the wise folks here have shown me the errors of my ways. Now (eventually) I'll be going the full analog route;
    Shoot,
    Develop,
    Contact Proofs,
    Print (and re-print and print again and again...),
    Post.
    Maybe this weekend I'll be at step 3.

    I have been thinking about doing my own prints actually although i haven't yet fully justified doing so. Setting up a darkroom and buying all the equipment needed etc would take time and money, and it's so easy just do develop the negatives and scan and digitally PP.

    I'll look into it though as i think it'll also help with the learning experience of getting a good photograph straight out of the camera, that's one reason i went film as i was shooting for Scotland with a digital and getting mediocre results lol.

    This hobby is getting expensive!
