Mike, those seagulls do seem to have personality! Fun juxtaposition too with a quick take as a long four-legged gull... I don't mind the background at all, well into bokeh-land.

Jason, your fireworks and ocean/sky shots are great.

Here's another XP2 shot. Practicing with the WLF.

OK, so recently I got bit by a 'how old can you get' bug and started to work my way back into the 1920s (I aim to go all the way to the 1900's and the very first Kodak 120 cameras)... This is with a No. 1 Pocket Kodak Series II with a focusing Anastigmat f/7.7 111mm lens, from somewhere between 1921 and 1931. I used Foma Fomapan 100 film developed in D-76 1:1, and in the scan I set film base as black and the brightest highlight as white - and much to my surprise the scan turned out to be in plausible color! In fact I had to desaturate it a bit... I like the effect. This is a gate behind Trinity Church in Manhattan, with an old walk way bridge to the American Stock Exchange building.

Cool old folder in that link. And that is interesting about the color.

If you really want to have fun, color your negatives in with highlighters.

I am very pleased with my last attempt at developing with divided pyrocat HD. While I still have issues with uneven development in the sky in this series, it actually helps creating the atmosphere.

Really neat place. A town that looks steeped in history. I don't know what the lure of that developer is but maybe it's time to use another one.

Nice bike Fabian! Is it yours?

Here are a pair of ours (bike on the left is my wife's, mine has the lower "Euro" bars...both are W650s). I'll have to shoot them with the Pentax 67 or 645 this summer. Several feet of snow on the ground here now.

Thanks everyone for the comments on my fireworks shot and the others I posted.

Tuco and Jason, thanks for the kind words.
That is one of the best fireworks shots I've seen. Congrats.

Steve
Steve, you're welcome and thanks for the kind words returned. I'm glad you like it. It was sort of an experiment really, worked out better than I hoped. I'm having al lot of fun with slide film right now.

Thanks Colton. Your WLF shots look fine to me. I am currently practicing with mine too, I find it challenging but fun. Will get some of the rolls developed soon and see whether I actually managed to keep it level and nail the focus!

Here is one more firework shot. I actually only took two with the 67. I think next time I will reverse my strategy and concentrate on the 67 over the digital.

Yes it is a great place - off season
I read about it quite a bit and the goal is to have very good compensation, nice graduation of tones and high accutance. Sandy King its inventor and several people using it are having good results with it. Our very own Vertex Ninja is successful with a similar developer Pyrocat MD as a two baths.
I am the one not getting there...did I mention that I was stubborn ?

In the part with details that did not suffer uneven development, the result looks good.

Next steps are:
1) Add NLF (Photo-flo) to bath A
2) Use distilled water (I have my doubts as the tap water in Vancouver is considered one of the best in the world with very few "extra" i.e. you can use about one tenth of sopa that you would use with regular tap water)

Cheers,

Luc

A few shots from my Medalist before I boxed it and put it in the mail for a semi-conversion (feed) and a CLA.
