Stunning! If it was digital I would have said that you'd photoshopped it

Thanks. Well, it was to some extent. The color and a bit of graduated tone on the foreground.

Time is always an issue! (And getting 6 x 6 negs to scan is a crap shoot! Scanner cuts them in half most of the time.)
This is fairly easy to manage. IIRC you are using an Epson V500 with Epson Scan. Firstly:
  • Place negative in the 120 holder and put the holder in the scanner
  • With scanner turned on, start Epson Scan
  • Use Professional Mode
  • Document Type: Film (with film holder)
  • Film Type: B&W Negative Film
  • Choose desired bit depth and resolution. Don't fiddle with document size or target size.
Nextly:
  • Click the "Configuration..." button
  • On the "Film Size" tab choose "6x6"
  • Click "OK" to close the configuration dialog
Now do the preview scan:
  • Click the "Preview" button
  • The Preview window should open and will probably default to the "Thumbnail" tab.
  • Notice your that the frames from your negative should be properly framed in the thumbnail view and ready for the final scan.
Should the frames NOT be properly detected, do not be dismayed...:
  • Click on the "Normal" tab of the Preview Window
  • The raw preview scan of the full strip should be visible
  • Click on the upper-left corner of the first frame and draw a box to the opposite corner to define the desired scan frame (the box is called a marquee)
  • Do the same for the remaining frames on the strip
  • Click the "All" button to select all of the frames you just defined
  • Click the Scan button to scan them in the order they were defined
You can zoom and adjust the marquee boundaries as needed.

Note that you can save your most recent setup. Epson Scan is notorious for not remembering your favorite settings, particularly in regards to USM (which I always leave turned off), but it doesn't hurt to try.

Yup, even in professional mode you can uncheck the "Thumbnail" checkbox and select your own scanner crops from the negative strips (at least in this is possible in the Mac OS X verison of the Epson Scanner Software).

Still more from the Tri-X @640, D-76, MX, M50/1.7 combo; the second one I've posted already but this one's a bit lighter. I was shooting at 1/30, and something like f/2.8-3.5.

I know what you're thinking, "Did he meter six zones or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a Pentax Spotmeter V, one of the largest hand meters in the world, and would blow your highlights clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk!?

Oh my God. I've been laughing out loud at this for almost a minute, to the point my eyes are watering. And the photo is the exclamation point for it all. Fantasic.

@tuco, thanks loads.

Nice, I thought you would be more of a "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" fan using the name "Tuco"!

Actually, I am a fan of that movie (have the DVD) and in fact that is exactly where I got the name for my alias. Tuco was the ugly.
