I have another very contrasty photo I just mindlessly took with the Hexar doing all the work that I'll attach in a sec. Thanks!
I'm stating this with all alacrity, that this is also a VERY nice shot, especially considering the huge range of light. Again, the detail in the darks is especially nice, and the brights are close to "blown", but really nice in this case. The composition is balanced, with the linear perspective showing me the way into the image.
In all truthfulness, your images that I've seen are extremely well taken. Pleasing and balanced, both in light values and in the element of the composition.
I would love to see even more work.
