John, I think you've had a glass or two of whatever you imbibe, but so have I, and I agree completely. Ansel is 'god' and there shall be no 'gods' before him. All photographers should have densitometerically tested all their negatives to an ideal based on printing paper from the forties, and print only on graded papers ignoring sixty years of evolution. Such work will be a lot easier when one's hand has been extracted from one's ass.
