Seemingly another sensationalistic thread started and sustained by a Mr.Riley & friend.In my opinion,only reason
being to incite and inflame people into joining and giving their 2 cents worth.All for the percieved reason of
generating revenue for this site. Dont show weakness now wheat.There are some angry people here,outside this forum.

Government hit drones circling the globe,looking for innocent victims.Yeah right wheat,just keep in mind
that next government drone you hear,might be your last.Better live it up now.Later might be sooner than you think.
I Sleep alot better knowing that the beast that called himself a citizen brother,the wretch that wanted
to kill my grandaughter is dead.No problems here,my conscience is clear.

I get it fine Wheat. You speak in defence of a man who is in large part responsible
for the deaths of 3000 fellow citizens of my country.Your hate has manifested
and is apparent to us in my own community.
As I typed before,Ill lose this argument in this forum.This thread sustains that.
Its outside this forum were the stength in numbers exist to overcome the
hate you express for my countrymen and I. Keep it going wheat,your doing fine.

If I recall right,kodak kits in 60's used dektol as a film developer for verichrome pan.
Any developer pretty much screams for test strips,lights out for pan.

LX viewfinders have an integral diopter adjustment.One of the features that makes it a classic.
A bit awkward to do the first time.Sure the good gentleman from tennesee
could describe if you contact him. Bought new,a screwdriver was included for that.

No confusion what so ever. Did Search for "Super Multi Coating" on various
search engine's and hoya filter was pointed at. By both myself and others,results were
the same.More of an issue outside this site than in it.
Everybody here knows whats being talked about when "SMC" is mentioned,dont they?

Hoya filters seem to imply SMC is their's. Any changes would have to be indicated
on package wouldnt it? Have a relative thats a patent attorney and loves
to talk about this kind of stuff. With upcoming family reunion,guess we have more
"fat to chew" that whats on the ribs.

One only has to consider Rupert Murdock to realize press/media is beyond reproach.
There are some glaring examples listed in this thread of governmental abuses.
Press/media salient in righting wrongs. Irreplaceable.
Above all else though,I have to consider the source.
incrementalism? No
Patronage? When's the election now?

A couple/few "dry runs" can do nothing but help Mette. Even in "city lights",off in
shadows on dark side of house can give valuable shooting experience and data.
Protecting front element from extraneous light by being in shadows will get you close.
More than anything,gives you baseline reference to aid in decisions with.
Can even enlist the kids for help,might want to hold off on well buttered popcorn
and like refreshments for them until afterwards.

Folks talk too much at times Sinister,great composition,use of light and contrast.
If I can imagine myself stepping outdoors into scene,believe your image is what
I would see. +400 is my way of saying I like Tmax...and your pic

Some good looking work from Votesh and Mehanikaloptikal also.
Kinda owe someone a pic,just dont have time. Great looking stuff here eases the pain.

There you go Wheat,even talked a bit about it at work here.
"the Parties to the conflict may take such measures of control and security in regard to protected persons as may be necessary as a result of the war."
Article 27, Geneva convention, 1949.

If you want to cover those people within AQ,regardless of not being signatory,then that excerpt is fine with us.
Outside of this forum, believe most my brothers and sisters in U.S. would agree. 14 co-workers Im with currently do.Thats good enough for me.

Lets call it a "measure of control".

How to keep straight a developed film that is rolling up on itself ?

Some properly sized sleeves, placed in a book with additional weight on top
should help aurele. Some film bases have the "shirley temple" look, all curly.
My wife got mad at me 'cause I used zip lock baggies for some 120
in a book with weight on top to flatten. If you dont have sleeves around for that size,
works pretty good. For 35mm Ive used clean typing paper (2 pieces) to protect,
then the book/weight thing. Have to be careful with dust,if everthing is dry
shoudnt have any problems.

Still prefer film over either canon or pentax DSLR's I have for long exposures,because
of noise generated by heat from IR square loses.Folks I spend some time with
at an astro' club here use mostly film or CCD imager with a telescope.

Couple of things perhaps, buffet from wake of adjacent aircraft,
or maybe a bit of rudder being "kicked in".
Only adds to a marvelous shot. Hope nothing is changed.Really like it myself.

Cool Looking bird, City. Like #2 most, it leaned forward a bit and gave you the best light to work with.
Wonder how many folks have ever put the face with the voice heard in so many movies.
