    I found my parents old Canon AE-1 Program, this was my first attempt at using film much less black and white film.

    I'd like to see more highlight detail in #1 and 2.

    #1 framing seems awkward to me.

    I like the grain, focus and composition of #2 but want more detail in the blown out pieces.

    I like the tones in #3 but wish you wouldn't have cut off the top of the back block.

    Did you develop yourself? Perhaps fix the highlights in development... "develop for the highlights."

    Got home and realized that my work monitor must not reproduce these images very well.

    The shadows in #1 hold more detail than I previously could see. That is good. I'd like to see the intact sculpture, not clipped at the elbow and in the foreground.

    The pieces in #2 have slightly more detail for me now. I'd like to see a little more, but that is me being picky.

    Now I think I can see the top of the back block in #3. The background is on the way out as you move toward the viewer's left edge and blends in with the white space between images. Would probably be seen much better on a dark background.

    I love B&W film.
