Re: The darkest color : 81 or 83 ?

D'Amico/Valentini touch the interesting subject of using yellow filters to improve contrast on B&W film, they illustrate this by including a rare with and without filter photo, the resulting effect is quite stunning.

Slightly off topic, but I did not remember ever seeing such a good example.

Shameless plug for their work, but hey I have Classic stock
