As I described to Liam, the film was overdeveloped when my thermometer
decided to read low (dropping it might have something to do with it, but
hey, at least I'm not trying to find the mercury).

I purposely kept the tonal values up to present an upbeat image of a
young person reading.  Another interpretation would be to make it really
dark and brooding because he is not reading Proust.

On the other hand, if an image causes a reaction, then there is some
merit there.

Thanks for taking the time to think about the image and comment.

Don I normally like grainy images but the combination of the grain,
and brightness of these images, doesn't work well for me. I like the
second image the most but I'd like things a little darker for these

Not sure why I'm reacting this way...I'll have to think about it some
