I'm really bad about post-processing stuff myself. One of the BIG problems for me is that I adjust my digital file on a display where it is back-lit and self-illuminating, then print on a reflective medium such as paper. Two never looks the same even in the best of conditions. I still haven't developed a "touch" for it. Sort of a digital version of the "dry down" effect....

I like the darkroom way because it's calming. Being an IT worker, doing it digitally seem so much like work. Darkroom is a special place for me. Shut the door and it's just ME. Plus, as I said in my first response, I can make better prints that way given my ability and equipment.

It's getting rather repetitive to see this our way vs their way type thread of every kind. We don't need to prove our way is better... I don't think? I just do it "my way" and let others (and the other half of me) do "their way" and as "they" see fit.
