In my limited experience with shooting, developing, and scanning B&W negatives, exposure and film development would be the most crucial step in the process. The images presented are typical of perfect exposures on good quality medium speed film developed by a B&W expert. After that all else is downhill.

But I'm also impressed by the technical quality of the digital presentations. It's not easy to get the tonal qualities reflected in these images. Some of the best I've ever seen! I'm curious to know if they were scans of negatives, or scans of prints made from the negs. I'd wish there was some detail on the whole workflow, for that matter. The photographs are phenominal. But someone had to get them to look good on a CRT. Was it because of a master printer, or a master scanner, or a master Photoshopper, or a combination? I don't mean to take anything away from the master photographer, who deserves the most credit. DaveR Feli wrote: > Amazing work.
