Dear Les,

I think we're saying the same thing about having to see originals.

Even so, I can't help wondering how far an unusual approach can 'rescue' a mundane subject. There's no doubt that it can, but equally there is always a temptation with an alternative process or ULF shot to persuade yourself to overlook shortcomings, where you wouldn't in a picture that was easier to reshoot/reprint. At least, I feel that temptation.
