    Thanks Nige, just a bit annoyed that I clipped the lhs of the flower.

    My OCD did spot that, but I felt it polite not to say anything. :)

    It's still a lovely shot - the low key light and deep blacks really work well.

    I sometimes process my pictures to drop a lot of the blacks down, but then I chicken out and bring them back up so there's very little clipping as I'm concerned that what looks nice on my PC might look less so elsewhere. You've encouraged me to maybe be a little more adventurous though.

    Perhaps I'll do a few tests and put them up for critique on here. :)

    Like Nige I wasn't going to mention clipping the edge but now you have ...

    WTF were you thinking?

    I think you should hold to what works for you, and let others take their chances. There's no way of governing what others see. The sensible way to me, as a photographer, is to set up the in-house display with printing in mind as regards brightness, because that's a key purpose. But, equally, I haven't noticed a conflict when seeing my images on other people's devices.

    Oh I wouldn't know anything about clipping and the like, I just fiddle about till it looks ok to my eyes.

    I don't do thinking, far too complicated. :D

    [​IMG]1708EPMXBW04 by Chris R, on Flickr

    Pity about the didgeridoo over the child's face in the second one. I wish I could claim the rim lighting effect was deliberate... oh, of course it was... wasn't it?

    Both Tri-X at 400 in a Pentax MX with the Pentax-M 35-70 f/2.8-3.5. It was hard to focus, but works nicely when I get it right. Or got it right. That lens was on the Pentax LX I threw on some rocks when I went backside over elbow at Queensferry the other week. Still lovely and sharp this side of infinity but won't quite focus all the way, also very stiff. Uncle Miles says £45 plus P&P but doesn't want either until October because he wants to clear his backlog.

    So, here's a quick edit of a shot to really drop the blacks. The photo was underexposed to start with and covered in dust spots, but the lack of shadow detail works quite well to my eyes (and on my monitor). Large swathes of the image are pure black with no shadow detail remaining at all. What do other people think though?

    OM-1 & Rollei Superpan 200.

    So do I - I much prefer deep blacks to slightly grey and fuzzy. I love the lily shot previously - didn't even notice the clipping until someone pointed it out!

    I always prefer black and white images that have some actual black tones in. I've never been a fan of the dark grey look.

    Thanks. I shall endeavour to be more daring with the blacks in future. :)

    Yeah - I shoot a lot of landscapes, Im one of the in house pro's for Vanguard. When Im out shooting with film I like to experiment and do stuff I wouldn't normally when shooting digital. It might not be for everyone and you might not understand it but I guess thats the beauty of photography (y)

    I like the ethereal look to it, rather like some of those Cadbury's Flake TV adverts of the 1970s.
