with all due respect keith ( and I mean that ), I don't think the shot you posted is really like of the shots the OP posted. I think the photographer the OP posted is over exposing a VC film. Just a personal observation. I like your photo though, way good tones.
Oh okay, and thanks I was seeing fairly pastel tones and low contrast, but I admit that I am sitting at a crappy uncalibrated monitor so maybe I am not seeing what you guys are seeing Anyway it all looks pretty run of the mill to me, just with some lensbabyish effects and almost certainly a bit of postprocessing (but I am not 100% sure of that)
Anyway, if it's an issue of exposure then dwdmguy can simply bracket and pick what he likes.
