Late Winter in Massachusetts

The Boston area is nearing the end of the worst Winter we can remember, with very deep snow, cold, and even some collapsed roofs from the weight. Now that the days are a bit longer, the rivers are full.

This Efke 25 test shot contributed by photog TM (those are his initials, not a trademark) was processed in R3 for about 3 1/2 minutes at 75F/24C. We have discovered that some of the so-called blocked highlights are really just the default settings on my Epson V750 scanner used here to produce this image. At first I thought it would be a good idea to use the default settings so that others could compare their results equally, but now I am tempted to tweak them, as this looks just like a normal negative when viewed on a light table, and I can see details in those shrinking, snowy highlights.
