    Dramatic, and I like the composition a lot. It's just slightly too dark for my taste and goes beyond "brooding" to "hard to see".

    I like it, yes it is a little dark but photos from a Holga often come out that way

    I haven't seen that. I don't get any of the video channels... :(

    It's interesting about the darkness... I have this set as my desktop image here at work with a black background and it doesn't look as dark as it does when it's on a white background, like this page. It's weird how the eyes play tricks... the scan is also a lil darker than my original, I think...

    Thanks Mark! We'll get you learning it all soon. :)

    At first I thought it was too dark but there's something about it that makes me want to keep looking for details and things I've missed.
    Bottom line is that it has a very interesting quality.

    It is dark, but the highlight near the center looks plenty bright. It just looks like a dark day to me. I like it.

    For my 2 cents... it's a keeper. I love the mood this evokes.
