Loch Ness - 6x6cm Negative.

I took this a few years ago with a twin lens camera, 6x6cm negative print film. It was early one morning on the way back south from Inverness. I found it very difficult to get a decent print in the darkroom, due to the many areas needing different exposures. Its the sort of print you could spend hours on, I was never happy with it and still think theres more potential in the Negative. With this example above I tried working on it in the digital darkroom (adobe Lightroom) and have managed to show more detail in the right hillside. However I was working from a scanned print, Not the scanned Negative, so I was at a disadvantage in that respect. When I get around to it, im going to get all my old films scanned, so I can work on them as digital files.
