BW darkroom prints from film negatives...
Then and also now. :)

I too love traditional black and white prints. I have also found a lab that will print to Ilford MG IV using a Durst Lightjet for prints from digital. The FB Baryata paper choice is outstanding.

On a relatively simple to print subject the quality from my 50D is way better than anything I have ever got from 35mm film.

Would really like to try LF or even a serious go at MF but I just don't have any space for a darkroom anymore.

I like old photos, they are look into the past. I like them when they have stuff in them that is dated cars, radios, especially scantily clad young women.

Portraits with a smiling subject. Too many portraits, esp "professional" shots, are flat, boring and expressionless. They look like clothing catalog shots or a Photoshop action advertisement more so than a window into the soul of the subject.

Well executed pj, sports and event photography which capture genuine expressions are a favourite of mine. Those moments never come again and tend to have particular importance to the subject. In rare cases they define a moment in history.

I like just about everything. Each individual photo is a capture of an event in a moment of time, space, and expression of emotion.

For my own shooting pleasure, I enjoy taking pics of flowers, birds, air shows, action, photojournalism, protest movements. I am more of a photojournalism-style shooter.

Of course, large areas of bright color and high contrast grab my attention, but the photos that stop me in my tracks, for lengthy staring, are often those with tension in the composition. Something about the ratios between parts is a little off of standard, enough to be surprising, enough to make me nervous.

I was a bit intrigued when I saw the wet plate stuff come across. Maybe just because it's really different and the process is an art form in itself

I enjoy the light painting stuff, and not like using a flashlight to paint a building or other subject (although that's pretty awesome too). I'm talking about the guys who construct a whole scene using led wands and other light sources. I've dabbled a little, but my stuff looks like child's play compared to what they're doing.

Good photography. This is very broad and highly subjective, but I’ve seen great wedding photographs of folks I don’t know. Yes, there’s a general “style” that I’m drawn to, that being photos that center around humanity in a fairly straightforward manner. However, any compelling and creative use of lines, balance (or unbalance if intended), composition, contrast, tonality, movement, lighting, and such can bring any subject matter to my attention.

Eggleston's photography is superb. Deal with it!

Guess I'm just goofy but I like some selective color shots if done right.

I'm really into aviation photography, especially aircraft in flight. I enjoy viewing aviation photos from other photographers, and when I see one that has great composition or a sense of drama then it grabs my attention.

Cityscapes of major cities (especially at night) also light my fire.

Stunning landscapes, interesting compositions regardless of subject matter.

Photos of people in beautiful light, as inspiration for what I’d like to achieve.

Anything which demonstrates the skillful use of very wide angle lenses..

Oh and also, amazing ultra-macro shots - mainly of bugs and taken with the MPE 65.
