Agreed as regards slides v computer screen - I haven't taken the  
Pradovit out for at least two  or three years though.

Now, I may have shot 1, read ONE, perfect slide in 25 odd years, and  
maybe 2 takes that deserve the name of photos, TWO, since 2006 when I  
turned digital.

Digital helped me progress seen from the stats angle.

The rest is acquired taste, and is part of the usual little  
music ... :-)

Bien cordialement
Philippe, who loves a neat BW print too, whatever the gear.
