Many thanks for the positive reception! Shots were made between 3-6 seconds. I metered basically at mid-shadows with the K2 meter and then took FP4+ reciprocity index into account. A Benro tripod and a remote shutter was used. I will post another one from the same set.

Another lovely photo. Thanks for the exposure info. I love FP4 but I've never shot it at night. I think I will have to give it a try.

It is a Ground Penetrating Radar. We use it for mapping archaeology beneath the surface. Check out the project blog for some results.

Cheers, Kris.

If you think that is whacky, check this one out!

Woot! Great to see some geophysics in action.

Okay. More proof of my Earth's diameter is increasing theory. We always have to dig to find things in the past or look under water to find ancient civilizations.

The structure of unearthed ancient cities almost makes that plausible...

Development time testing RPX 25 in D-23. I take a picture of a gray card metered to place it 3 stops above the middle gray exposure (Zone VIII) and develop it with some other sheets to simulate a full load for the developer and look for a target density of 1.25. The density of the test picture came out to 1.32. So reducing my development time around 10% should get me there by the next attempt I suspect.

45 Wista Rangefinder, CM Fujinon W 135mm, RPX 25, D-23 (1:1)

I don't often see a photo where a fisheye lens was well used, but this is certainly one of them.

That looks very nice indeed - sharp, clean and with very nice tones indeed.

Reminds me of that shot from the exorcist, it's just missing a dark figure.

Field in south central Minnesota, near Waterville. Shot on film on a 1951 Zeiss Ikon Contessa. Probably Fomapan film.

Yeah, I want to try more. This developer seems to separate the toe end of the film more than Rodinal.

Some things I saw while walking my brother's dog. Free junk and recycling
500C/M, CF 100/3.5 and CF 50/4 FLE, HP5+, PMK
That last one of the glass recycle reminds me of many of my neighbors. Every week a full bin of empty booze bottles.

I like the "evidence" factor. I'd guess the wine is what she consumed and the Jack Daniel is what he had. We can see who drinks more.
