The sun sets over Swansea

I often climb a mountain close to where I live, especially towards the end of the day to try and grab the evening light. This was shot with 645D with A 80 - 160 at 80mm and f/8 and at 1/30 ISO at 100 and steadied on a manfrotto alu tripod. Have cropped in too.

Nice shoot.
Then i was taken a look at your developer for find informations and i came at this discussion:
WD2D+ Developer
where there was a discussion about the procedure to use it, in particular is the presoaking was necessary even on modern film (as said on the instruction or not).
Given that you have obtain a nice image, can i ask wich procedure you are follow?

Thank you, alexfoto, I presoak in plain water at the development temp. for about the time it takes me to mix a batch of developer(1-2min). I use the agitation schedule recommended in the instruction sheet that is included.

I have not experienced any more than normal amount of spots, or dust spots with this developer. My guess is that the experience that you linked to is caused by the photo flow not being mixed sufficiently, or the powder is settling out.

This is an easy developer to use and I like the results I get with it. Give it a try.

Since the 645D crowd have been reduced to shooting cups of coffee, here is my contribution...

A presoak is typical among staining/tanning developers modern film or not as well as using only water for a stop.

Nice shot! My wife walked into the kitchen, saw me with my camera on a tripod right by my coffee machine, and then walked away shaking her head, mumbling something about her husband being a nutter. priceless!

I can see the mastercard ad now....


Buying a expensive camera.........$10,000

seeing your wife think you've completely lost it......priceless

One of my first 645d photos

Our new cat came together with the new 645d but not from the same company

This one with the FA 120. On the window sill with harsh backlight. Snapshot, thus no flash, no brightener. This is the jpg out of the cam with some adjustments and converted in bw. Have to work with the pef later.

Arcaswissi, I think you've misunderstood what "100% crop" is. It means that one pixel on the screen is one pixel from the sensor, which obviously is not the case there.
Just crop the original to 800 pixels width or whatever you like and post it as it is.

I know what you mean. I cropped to 1024px because I thaught that this is the max size of the image in the forum. As I see it is a bit less thus forgive the inaccuracy.
BTW also the first photo was a crop therefore youŽll probably saw not much difference in size.

The Silver Man. This guy is a regular feature at the Pike Place Market in Seattle. He is all painted in silver as well as the chair, lunch box and money bucket (I painted him more bronze). His act is to stand there for pictures and make robot servo motor sounds when you approach him. Apparently, it is lucrative enough for him to do this because I've seen him there for many years. So this year I've finally joined the countless other people who've also taken a picture of him.
Mamiya 7II, N 65mm f4 L, Kodak 400TMY, PMK Pyro


I remember this one. I have not been in Seattle for years (literally) but he was already there.
I am just back to reality after a few days hiking in Banff and Yoho National Park. Found the new look for the forum and the 645D' crowds getting wild on coffee cups and others household items
I took the 4x5, Minolta Autocord and Canon P. I had a Sherpa (assistant) that took my tripod - that is what younger member of family are for after all I took the 4x5 only once for a full hike in a real backpack (Kelty 44) and was agreeably surprised to make it through the 20 Km
I have been thinking about Tuco's Mamiya 7 and the weight with envy. At the end of the day the real killer is adding a heavy tripod to heavy equipment. That said, I enjoyed the heavy wooden Berlebach when shooting in the wind on ridges well above tree line, not sure that a carbon would have cut it.
Now I have a few hours/days of developing and scanning in front of me.

Cheers,

Luc
