    This is a sample (but true!) answer: This is a 5x7 Ilford Multigrade IV "Perl" print that was scanned on an HP ScanJet 4p (?), which is a flat-bed scanner and should probably not be used for serious Web work. I wasn't able to pick up the character of the glass on this one. The shadow areas are too dark, but I do like Mimi's skin tones around her arm, hand, and face. The real photograph has some more detail in her hair and of the bottles in the lower left.

    <p>By the way, this was printed using my new 25x37 negative carrier for my Leitz Focomat V35 enlarger. I know of few material things that I love more than my V35!

    Scanning and posting to the web can be tricky. It is way easier to create a 600K lousey image than it is to create a great image that is merely 60K.
