Nice colours ! It could be a little bit more sharp. Perhaps the resizing...

Nice portraits and fine tones. Two light sources or one and a reflector, perhaps?

@fs999: One of the traps of shooting both SLR and TLR is that sometimes I forget to check the cleanliness of the shooting lens on the Rollei. Only after I took the shot did I realize the shooting lens had a bunch of dried raindrops on it from a few days earlier. Another reason for the lack of sharpness is that I am scanning from the prints rather than the negs.

I've had this roll sitting around undeveloped since summer. I didn't like anything on it so there it sat. But with not much shooting going on I finally developed it and this was about the best thing on it. It was a gloomy day even in the summer.

You should scan from negs, you will get better results...

On the Lisa shot (scanned at 2400 dpi), I can see her fingerprints !

Unfortunately it looks like my bellows patches have failed, I'll need to replace the bellows on this camera (not to mention, I stupidly broke off the flap in the back)... Certo Super Sport Dolly 6x6 folder with a Xenar 75/2.8 lens. Kodak 400NC.

Bummer about the light leak, the camera/lens looks to be quite a nice performer though. I like the first image, has an interesting feel to it

Yes, not bad for an uncoated lens from the 30s.

Ah, I'm one roll less Constipated I've been doing some Rodinal tests with Acros and had this roll around for a month shooting test subjects on my newly established EI while waiting for it not to rain. I'm working on a sort of semi-stand, 1+100 at, so far, 20 min. This roll was the first after conducting a speed test. It appears my working EI is 160 rounded off to the nearest std ASA. I measured for a density of 0.1 above the film base + fog density for Zone I.

There are so many recipes out there for developing Rodinal. It seems everyone has a different agitation profile too. I used one I got off the net and notice my negatives seemed too dense. So I thought I'd find out. And I was right. So I elected to alter the agitation profile to see if it would bring my speed down ( it was higher) while keeping the time the same. As some of you know I use a machine I made to agitate my film. I put in a new profile that does the agitation less aggressively than was posted. It's now 3 inversions in 15 seconds once every minute for 3 minutes and 2 gentle inversions every 3 minutes after that. That produced a negative more in the ball park and with what looks like finer grain too. So now being only 1/2 stop off from box speed means I really can shoot at either I suppose.

So far my zone V and Zone VIII densities are in the ball park at 0.75 and 1.30. I'm using density targets for a diffusion enlarger. I'm still testing if I'm going to keep the development time the same for and my Zone VIII densities. Here is a test shot using that new EI and agitation profile.

Thanks fs! The first was taken at around 1pm and the second at sunset on the same day. I was actually a bit late for the second picture; ideally I would have been there earlier to lessen the large cold shadow in the foreground... oops. Plus I think a longer lens was needed
