Who made you the expert on exposure settings?
What other photo do you have to compare my shot to?
Yes, there is Joe Pries' shot, but it was digital and I am
sure there is a difference with the exposures of film versus digital.
I think that you sir, are jealous and will continue to remain jealous about that shot. If you think you are such a good photographer, lets see some of your work.
As for my equipment, I own a Canon EOS 1VHS with professional lenses.
The Canon 28-70 f-2.8, Canon 70-200 f-2.8, Canon 85 f-1.8 and the
Canon 1.4x and Canon 2x converters. I really don't think my equipment
let me down at all. I think I nailed that shot quite nicely. I then even
used Adobe Photoshop 7.0 to scan it and save it...........
What equipment do you have?
By the way, you've got a wonderful and fully working web site listed
under your information...........
