Dear Dave,
I just wanted to send a note to say thank you for getting the matted “21” print to us so quickly. It looked great in person and we were able to have it framed and shipped out prior to the Christmas holiday.
Warmest Wishes for a happy and healthy New Year.

That shot of the subway interior – the one you said you did with a view camera whatever that is – I don’t know but it is just fabulous, and as you said great at a big size. Thank you so much for getting it to me for Christmas. I’ve already got it framed and wrapped. My husband is going to love it. He’s a big fan.

The truth is, that I was able to really do every print to my own liking. Even though I’ve done Interior Subway a few hundred times at various sizes, I rescanned it because I thought my neg. scanning technique was better, and I wanted to put it through the new workflow with NIK software. (At some point, I’m going to have to do a writeup about NIK. Yes, they are that good).

The shot above, you may remember in color. Yes – probably better in color, but I just can’t switch right now and have five or six good color shots. From a selling point of view it doesn’t make sense. Just kills the Beckerman look.

    You know Dave, color, yeah. But when I look into this, yes, into – it takes my eyes for a ride, first to the leaves, then, peering through the water and around the circles and the maze. Hell, it takes a few seconds before you realize there’s a manhole cover. It’s a great ride. Color doesn’t do that. This is very sumptuous in black and white.

    Thanks Bob. Yes, that’s what I had in mind when doing the post-processing… a sort of swirling eye… and eventual realization… though after looking at the high res version… there is an awful lot to see in such a simple scene.

    People love my cover and your photo. Please look at both websites for my novel, Final Exit…a suspenseful tale of passion unleashed. I’d be ever so grateful if you posted some relevant info about me and the book on your site to encourage sales. Here is the 2nd website:

    Much love,
