    Posted this in the themes but I'd like a critique before I print this one. It's just a scan of the negative but I think I may have to setup the darkroom to do a print.

    Terri says: DO IT.

    Will you do full bleed, or do you think it might pull it in better if you lose that top slice of sky?? That's the only thing I find remotely questionable about this one. I love it! :D

    I thought this was going to be a picture of an old version of photoshop... ;)

    It's a great photo. The tones are very nice and there's a lot of texture. Could be a little more interesting but it's still very good.

    I like the sky slice. It makes it obvious the house is flat. I'd print it too.

    That's frameable and sellable. In my opinion they don't come a whole lot better...

    It's Voods' private stash...why do you think he keeps going out there? :twisted:


    I want you to make a print of this on Agfa Classic 118, 10% lighter than you normally would and let me hand tint it for you. You might like it. :goodvibe:

    Printing is unanimous. The tonal and detail are fantastic but I think it may be a bit heavy on the left side. A little bit unbalanced in composition perhaps. I"M NO PRO with photos thats for sho but I think shooting the door more to the right and bringing in more "wacky" plants or just the opposite with less darkness. Did you use a filter?
