This is from my first shoot on a new project. This was shot with Kodak Porta 400 b+w, negative scanned by the lab - some recropping and contrast enhancement done by me.
I use such digital manipulations as a roadmap for my wet darkroom work - I try out a few things, such as crops and contrast changes, before taking the image into the darkroom for the Real Work.
All of those disclaimers aside - how do you like this image? Not necessarily the tonal values, contrast, etc., but the composition and subject. Is this a visually appealing composition?
