1) Start 22, Unique Possibilities to (UP) 22(!).
2) Locked 5s at df4 forbid df5=5.

4) Hidden pair 56 at f14 forbids f1=189, f4=17. UP 38.
5) h1=2 == h1=6 -- f1=6 == f4=6 -- e4=6 == e4=2 forbids h4=2. UP 41.
6) Locked 5s at a78 forbid a5=5.
7) More...

1b) Locked 6 abc5 => ef5<>6
1c) (hp 56)f14=> f14<>1789 => up 38
2) More...

This looked daunting, but I pared down the possibilities by finding several numbers that only occured within blocks as I scanned up and down or sideways. Got to the point where it was obvious that guessing at one pair would solve the puzzle and it did.
Thank you Clark and Steve. When I'm up More...

28::25 - should have been quicker but I solved the whole thing in my head before doing it on the screen! In a stark way that's a beautiful photo.
