    might this be a what is called “highkey” photo:)? I’m sure it looks great in print:) It is one of those pictutures that only work if printed…

  • yes, I did debate putting it up but am still high from the win last night.

    Splendid shot! (And you sneak—you posted it on top of a prior post so that it doesn’t show up as the most recent shot! Oops, I’ve done that…) Gorgeous and viewed larger, much of the subtlety does come across!

    And don’t hide this, despite the previous guy’s comment, Nadine. Everyone’s a critic!

  • OK!

    If you won’t bold the text about your win, Dr. Henley, then others must, I fear.

    Congratulations on your wins. For me there is nothing as good as a ‘print’ in the hand. Screen images never give me the buzz of a good print, which yours certainly was.

  • I agree, Fred – but still wanted to share this fun one with my RB pals!

  • I used Ilford High Gloss Media paper – it really brought out the blacks ;0
