Thank you Mel for the compliments.  I enjoyed your shots of Portland Head Light, I've never been up there in the winter.

I know I have to remind myself to make sure I look at the whole, and not just the parts.  Back with film, I did obsess with sharpness...but now it's so easy to see any imperfections with a shot.

I just flipped through your website images. You are a wonderful photographer.

I think you're right about old lenses from the film era - I would rack the enlarger up, focus on the grain in the middle of the frame, set the timer and aperture, and hit the foot switch. The image was greatly enlarged, but negative - and once in the Dektol, we just wanted it to come up in about 60-90 seconds, to get full tone.

Who looked in the corners?
