B&W in a dark room. 3 or 4 hours to produce 4-6 poor prints...

B&W is what I miss about film. I was pretty good in the darkroom and still haven't gotten results from digital that = what I got with B&W film. Color? Yes digital is great and like you I hated color neg film because God only knows what you would get back from the lab. Slide film was nice but again, hard to get a good print from. But B&W imho still looks very nice from film.

Do you use Lightroom or photoshop. It feels to me like they will do anything. It took me a long time to learn to do it and I was poor in a darkroom.  I am of course still learning

Have a look at my photo stream on Flickr. Judged through your eyes as some one who was good in a dark room tell me what you think. I'm not fishing for a compliment just interested to know what you think.

I like houghton-portrait-web and a few others viewed on a monitor.

My problem is, like slide film, trying to get a print to look really good. I have some fun software for doing B&W conversions in PS and can get a nice looking B&W on a monitor, I just haven't been able to get a print to look like the ones I got optically printing in the wet darkroom.
