    Hi
    I noticed in your site an error in the name of volcano around
    Taormina's shot (1995); the volcano is not called Vesuvio (which is
    around Naples) but it is called Etna. May be you want to correct it.
    Greeting and my compliments for the photos.

    An absorbing set of images. The creamy gradation given by T-max film and
    brought out by your obviously skilled printing is absolutely stunning -
    not to mention a perceptive eye. I am awed - and somewhat jealous!

    My 300D is good, but not that good - or maybe it's me. I must strive
    harder with my black&whites.

    Digital B&W does not have the same feel as film B&W to me.

    Why not? Could you explain this? Can you not process the images to "be
    the same"?

    It's hard to explain. It's like one person liking plums and the other
    one doesn't. You really can't explain it enough to have the other one
    understand why you like them.

    The processing it totally different. The film negative is made up of
    clusters of silver. The digital "negative" is made up of 1's and 0's. I
    think it is there that the difference arises. I have been using B&W for
    near 20 years now which might be why I can see the difference.

    I have tried for a year with a friend to try to give digital the same
    look as film. We were never satisfied.

    But in the end it comes down to your taste for plums.

    Peace.

    The same reason that mock Tudor isn't the same as Tudor. Looks like Tudor
    but it's more TudorBethan, if you get my drift.

    It's a purely subjective thing, and it only works if they know which
    images are digital and which are film. In a controlled double-blind
    test, they'd never get it right. Think Coke versus Pepsi.

    Do you have a source of this research or is it purely subjective?
