Hi Thomas, yep, still lots of room for improvement to my work prints, which is fine with me, I need the practice! These negs were the result of a perfect storm of obstacles. P&S camera, direct sunlight, heavy shadows, very light skinned subject, tri-colored hound, and the list goes on. I wasn't processing my own negs back in '95 when these were taken. The local "pro" shop developed the negs, and I had them do a 5x7 print for me. VERY disappointing results, with the highlights completely blown, so now that my own darkroom is up and running, it was the perfect opportunity to try to improve some prints, learn some new techniques, and have some fun, all at the same time!
