Ansel Adams' Zone System - Still Relevant?

Alan Ross had the good fortune to work side by side, both in the field and in the darkroom, with Ansel Adams for a number of years. Suffice it to say, he probably has as much direct exposure to Adams' development of, and use of, the 'Zone System' as anyone you're likely to run across.

In this blog post, he presents a little background on the Zone System, but is primarily out to answer the question of whether the system  remains a useful technique today.....some 70 yr after Adams originally developed it.

To the question....'darling or dinosaur', I suspect you may already know AR's answer.
