Known as the biosphere to scientists and as the creation to theologians, all of life together consists of a membrane around earth so thin that it cannot be seen edgewise from a satellite yet so prodigiously diverse that only a tiny fraction of species have been discovered and named.

I have been experimenting with processing the same image several different ways in Lightroom.  Above, an image of daffodils has been processed to look as though it were taken with Kodak Tech Pan film, a very fine-grain, low-ASA film.  The mood and look are quite different than when the same image is processed to look as though it were taken with some other type of film.  The details are different; the tones are different; the emphasis is different.
