    thanks, i believe you are referring to the sx-70 manipulations. How i miss that film. This isn't too far OT as Ansel did a lot of work for Polariod.

    ann ;

    Yes , I agree. I saw his Hasselblad Sonnar BW polaroids and now I have two Sonnars. I watched Ruussian Travel Guide TV at Satellite Hotbird and there was a man from StPetersburg who won two times best florist of USSR award. They were talking about Dutch style and the red roses were apperared at the tv like kodachrome shots. I believe there is great artistic background at Ektachrome and Kodachrome.
    I read that there was a woman colorist who managed the colors of famous technicolor films. And another interesting point was there were tremondous amount of lighting used at these films where artists faced with retina problems.
    I dont know who were behind of colors of these kodak films , one person or a lots of person. I really want to learn that.

    I favor Edward's vegetables and find his nudes boring. Ansel has some very lovely work that has been forgotten with the focus being on "grand landscape".
    Yes, why does it have to be one or the other?

    Weston because of Weston and Adams because of Adams. I've seen both artist's work and was wowed equally. If there is a leaning in one direction, it would have to be Adams, because my photographic "craft" has improved exponentially because of him. I'm big on Adams because of what he's done for my photography, not because of his landscapes.

    More than the Weston meter?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    One fellow was tall and liked to climb up on cars to photograph the landscape. The other fellow was short and closer to the ground level.

    I agree for Weston, but even Edward considered Brett the better photographer.

    This takes nothing away from Ansel Adams.
