On my screen, it's very dependent on where the image is, when the deep shadows are near the top (a bit above eye level) they are very dark, but when below eye level only the base of the big beech on the left of the first image is blacked out.I must add the standard disclaimer: "On this screen." Shadow detail seems to evaporate in transmission.
With that qualification, on this screen there is some loss of shadow detail, but they are far from from soot and whitewash silhouettes..... I really like the second image's composition.I must add the standard disclaimer: "On this screen." Shadow detail seems to evaporate in transmission.
Actually, there was not a huge range in either scene, maybe 4ev from the shaded trunks to the bright leaves hence the push to 200 as I wanted the shadows quite dark and the leaves bright. The developing time is the digitaltruth.com value for FP4+ at 200, in stock ID-11 (first use) corrected to 21°.James, out of curiosity, may I ask how you arrived at 200 for FP4? Most people seem to arrive at a lower figure, but it's not a cast iron law. Zone testing tests your whole process and not just FB+F.
