Taken this winter in Achensee, Tirol:



The white dots are not bad processing but real snowflake, for this I think I've used a M 100 mm f2.8 on LX, XP2+.



Speedmaster 1957 Professional, LX and M 85mm at minimum distance (sorry I couldn't get closer)...I think I shot at f2.8.

Thanks guys. Appreciate the feedback.

Where did you happen to get your hands on Neopan 400? Really keen to try some myself. Looks like Tri-x but with deeper, richer blacks.
I bought a couple of rolls a few years back to try. It's much grainier than Tri-X and has flatter tones, here I've tried to recover shots in PP.

10x8 takes lots of work. I've spent six hours (possibly all wasted) on this so far, and Flickr won't upload it.

So here it is from another site. Chamonix 10x8, Nikkor-M 300mm/f9, Ilford Hp5+ @640, Diafine in BTZS tubes, Epson V850 scan:

Yes, I don't think they can deal with huge volumes of Megapickles. How do you like the BTZS tubes? Great photo, BTW

Few pics from the motorcycle museum, in B&W they look better:

T-bird:



Exhaust:



Douglas the flying teddy bear invites you to the Motorcyle Museum:



Water cooled:



The sculpture of a Manx in front of a Manx:



Triple prototype:



All these pictures are characterised by the almost pornographic use of the K50mm f1.2 wide open with a LX and a AF280T flash, the film is XP2+

Thse are more normal shots with some DOF:

Triumph four cylinders prototype:



Ariel Quad:



Another British crazy four:



Bandit!



Slender:



Black Shadow:

Really nice shots Cuthbert. Chrome is always best in b&w.

Here are a few for AldaCZ.

Shot on my Flexaret III. Technically a "IIIa", but I no longer recall what distinguishes between a "III" and a "IIIa". (Most likely a difference in the installed shutter.)

Out of my three Flexarets, this is the model that I wouldn't recommend. There's a easily guessable reason why this was the only model with crank advance, and why it has both an auto frame-counter and a red-window on the back. The film advance was reportedly finicky when new, and hasn't really gotten better with age.





Meopta Flexaret IIIa.
Mirar II 80/3.5.
Shanghai GP3.

Thanks. The BTZS tubes make life very easy. Especially using Diafine, as neither solution A or B, nor stop or fixer are time critical, so I can stand the tubes on end letting the current solution drain down into the lids while I rinse and refill the spare lids with the next solution. That way I can just use one 11x14 tray of water to rotate the tubes in, and have one 10x8 tray of water for receiving the negatives after they come out of the fixer. Saves a lot of space when using a tiny washroom as a makeshift darkroom!

Thanks.

Two more, though these are 35mm shots:



Canon AE-1.
Canon (new) FD 35-105mm f3.5.
Fuji Neopan 400.



Pentax K2.
smc Pentax-A 50mm f1.4.
Fuji Neopan 400 (pushed to 1600, which is my favourite way of shooting Neopan 400).
