The ultra-large 4×5 negative sure does have a way of reminding me of how I messed up. This photo looks great on the screen, but when zoomed in I can tell her face was not in perfect focus, dang it. I was bummed when I opened this photo in Lightroom. It is SO close to being great, and for most applications it will be great, but I shot it at F5.6 and just barely missed focus. And if you miss focus shooting at 210mm and F5.6, you only have an inch or so of forgiveness. Lesson learned. Again.
