Re: uncurve/curve comparison on Loris' website


Can you possibly post a screen grabber shot of the curve (photoshop curve window) that you came up  with?

Sorry, the more I think about this the more it seems like watching a 
dog chasing its tail.  You start out with a (black) negative that 
prints too contrasty because there's too much density at the top end 
of the scale.  To eliminate that problem, you make a colorized 
negative with a lower DR.  But if the color/curve takes out too much 
density so you're getting tones where you don't want them,  then you 
decrease the dichromate to increase the contrast so that the lightest 
tones won't stick.   This seems like a merry-go-round that one might 
never get off of.
