batwister: you also came to my rescue.
In slight defense of myself I say this: for 'pictorial' I was thinking of what Kodak says when it states two different development times for a high contrast film (i.e., a process film). They give one development time for 'copy' speed (much faster film speed) and one development time for 'pictorial' use (much slower film speed). Kodak means 'continuous tone' with 'pictorial' with this meaning and this Kodak meaning has NOTHING to do with the fuzzy pictures that the predcessor to the f64 group espoused. I misapplied the meaning of the word 'pictorial' in thinking of this Kodak definition. Thanks batwister for clarification. I knew that I was not really all THAT stupid but I could not think of the specific reason for my evoking that word towards Ansel Adams' work. In a slight way, I was right, but, again, I do thank all for the correction because, in this particular venue, your correction was MORE correct.
Michael R 1974: The real reason that 'nobody got pissed' is because this forum does not take place in Philadelphia. (I ought to know: 21 years here and I was a 2010 US Census enumerator!). We all are here in order to seek knowledge and we all know that admitting error is vastly more productive than the ego aggrandizement that so many seek in this sorry 'culture'. Also, the crowd on this thread is actually sane and intelligent and very mature. - David Lyga
