David Lyga, I think everyone's objecting to the word pictorialism, the idea that photography should emulate painting... Because it goes against everything that Group f/64 stood for. Their manifesto is clear. They wanted to make the best photographs possible as photographs and not as any other kind of art.
To give high praise is not going to draw criticism... just an unfortunate word choice...
Rafal, your work is worth linking to, it illustrates the point very well. I would be pleased to have any one of my shots look so good.
I don't know if I'll get a chance to try different films, I'm about to place an order for TMY-2... But I will be experimenting.
