    a wee bit gray...you don't quite have ur black blacks and ur white whites(except for the blown out spot between the tanks)

    If you are printing in a darkroom try dodging and burning some areas

    if you have a longer sync chord and a flash you could also flash the man to get a little better all around exposure, just a thought. i like the idea here though.

    could be different monitors, on mine if I add any more contrast I'll loose all the detail in the face and tanks. It's a scan from a b/w negative

    I like it,
    The "blown out" portion between the tanks adds greatly to the feel of the image. I wouldn't do a thing to this one.
    Well done.

    Beautiful shot!!! I enjoy the light in this frame. Monitors are a bad judge, but I would kick in a tad more contrast.

    i reaaaally like this. i think a little more contrast would really enhance it (unless you wanted the grays).

    I like that the top is blown out. But the bottom is too bright and flat. It definitely needs more contrast. And yes, i'm on a calibrated monitor.

    I'm still having a hard time with seeing the contrast, I have almost pure black in the lower left side of the tank and what looks like a gray scale across the big tank from upper right to lower left.
    anyone that wants to play with it, feel free. In fact I give a blanket OK to play with anything I post.
    thanks for all the comments!

    I opened it in Photoshop, and adjusted the dark side of the levels slider. Just moved it in until it met the edge of the histogram. I love the photo.

    Nice composition... I like the corrected version better. Maybe I just would not pull to the black all the way.
