Thanks!Much less the movie Twister and more a marvelous collection of Octobery leaves. It's really a wonderful collection Paul. These would look good printed about 20 or 30 inches, modernly framed and on a wall in a professional office. They are an exemplar of the style and subject.
Nice. The first one is my favorite of the two.A Couple More Pods

Both of these are shot on Delta 3200 film, which I exposed and developed as if it were ISO 800 film: Seven and a half minutes in HC110 dilution B at 20 degrees C to be exact. The advantage of pulled development is highlight protection. The increased exposure (lower metering ISO) gives better shadow detail. What's not to like?
Well for one, the grain of pulled film still looks like the film was faster, that is mid-tones have heavy, sharp grain. More grain means lower contrast, so you can use this as to further isolate near-far compositions.
I like these to document how you went on to get the chosen shot! Some good ones, here, but still: you made the right choice!Day 17 bucket...
These were nice, especially the first one, which I was on the fence about, compared to the selected photo...

This was pleasant as well, but just seems like it had no cohesion...

A little better IMHO...

There were so many leaves down, I couldn't find a spot with just a solo leave in a small puddle (and with it still drizzling and windy, I didn't want to try to clear an area).
It was a tough call, and very subjective.I like these to document how you went on to get the chosen shot! Some good ones, here, but still: you made the right choice!
Nice analysis. I'll have to look at your 1.4 shot in your main thread.For those interested in what the Summilux' apertures look like when taking closer portraits: Compare these to the f/1.4 in my thread. After checking these, I decided to go with the 1.4 shot.
