We all discuss contrast, exposure etc but I have to admit that I'm not sure I know what 'Good' contrast looks like. There are some of you that seem to nail your exposures every time, produce images that 'glow', I understand that the the light quality at the time of exposure has something to do with this and that the developing process comes into play. Does anyone have any prints that they could share by attaching them to this thread that would demonstrate, low contrast/high contrast, correct exposure.

Understand that the scan will lose some of what is there, but would it be any more that is lost through the reproduction in many books? I have seen images that just knock my socks off and other that do not, just based on what I perceive as correct exposure, proper contrast, etc.

Any thoughts advice, etc is appreciated as always.
