These are fabulous. Lovely tones. It really is still well worth using film.

There's lovely control of highlight and shadow detail, which I suspect had to do with the choice of film?

2 & 3 are my faves. I'm sure you've noticed you've clipped the edge of the pool on the right hand side so I won't bring it up ;P

for some reason the preview image shows the pool cut off. Strange

I like the pool shot best. The new improved site software not only reduces it to 594 pixels wide it also hides the RHS under whatever is in the right column

Not on my screen Algi, so I guess it varies with browser and/or screen dimensions.

Very nice set of images, all excellent and well suited to black and white.
Best regards, John

It was mentioned previously. I think it changes to full once you get a screen wider than 1500 pixels. It also hides part of the accompanying text. No very good considering 1280 wide is supposed to be the width used by the majority of visitors.

Best thing is to put in a report including all the relevant information - the problem experienced, screen dimensions, browser used, etc. Then IT can be aware it's still a problem.
Best regards, John
