Pre-exposure to loosen the contrast in the shadows on Zone 1. Geek-tastic - this means you give it two exposures, one much much less that the other and through something translucent, which changes the exposure in the shadows a lot but kind of leaves the highlights alone. It seems to have done what I wanted.
Yes, sorry, the tree thing maybe getting out of hand. I am considering changing my Flickr handle to Ent-hunter. But it is such a pleasant photographic experience out there in the hills beyond Brighton, and it's so crowded in town.
I'm planning a swing back to colour in the autumn. Maybe back to my industrial roots.
