A visit to the M. C. Escher web site should get your vision back on track.

You can always re-size that JPG.

Use Ilford Delta 400 for shooting fine deep shadows and dork blacks. Works for me!

I love my 50mm lens best of all!

Dork blacks are dorky blacks. One guy in another forum used to write: "the Panasonic MX8 is for shooting for fine deep shadows and dark blacks," about 200 times, probably even more. However, one time he spelled "dark" incorrectly: "dorks." So the line went: "for shooting fine deep shadows and dork blacks." Anyway, I picked up on it and so did others, and now this line has become well-known in describing high contrast shadows and dark blacks. We all know that blacks are dark, whites are bright, and grays are somewhere in-between. Anyways, here's that fella's website:

Thanks Jeff

I checked out the site: cool.

Did you ever see the episode of the Simpsons where the family was appartment hunting (after losing the house) and one of the places they looked at was Escher's Relativity...genius!
