The second of the series. Was not ready when I posted the first one.

Here is another image from a scanned B&W negative.
This picture was taken a few minutes after the first one, posted earlier.
My usual disclaimer: I'm still learning the art of scanning.

Kodak BW400CN C-41 type film
Epson 2400

You almost need to have them side-by-side to compare! I think I prefer the composition in this one, but I feel something more needs to be done with the contrast.

Thanks Adam!

I agree. I kept working on it and here I layered the mid section and increased the contrast.
