Colton, really nice series all the way round. I still don't know how you get that Superia 200 to look so good. I never have much luck with it. (Although I was pleasantly surprised with some CVS 200 film I shot a while back, so maybe there's hope for me and Superia 200).

BTW, also really nice work in the MF forum; looks like the larger format agrees with you <g>. Particularly enjoyed your truck from World Pentax Day.

Best,
Kevin
Thanks Kevin. I enjoyed your recently posted group of shots.

I'm a bit late to comment here, but Colton I'm loving that set of colour shots. Great results and the Celica looks good too.
Thanks Jason.

I was at Windy Ridge near Mt. St. Helens this last weekend and managed to finish the roll of Rollei Retro 100 that was in the camera. I thought I had a bunch of good photos and probably would have except poor judgment regarding developer. The short story is that only two out of thirty were savable.

Great shots Steve. Too bad about the development issue.

Here's the XP2 shot of the barn I took with my 67. I had some dust issues when I scanned it and there was so much I didn't want to spend forever with the spot healing tool so I didn't get it all.

Steve, the shots look fine, particularly the first one which I really like. What were the developer issues?

Badly spoiled nasty oxidized developer. I was hoping that color might not be a good indicator of depletion. Wrong again! Most of the roll was tragically under-developed with a liberal deposit of some sort of precipitated grit that does not clean off. For some reason the six or seven photos towards the outside of the reel were little affected and received adequate development. That might have been the result of the developer entering the tank at the outside margins.

Steve, that's really too bad about your film. Seeing those two pictures I would have liked to look at the rest of the roll.

Nice series, Colton.
Jussi, love the oxidation.
And thanks from me, Steve, for the vertigo. I think I like the second one best ...

Looks really good Colton although an 800 x 630 screen shot doesn't do it justice in terms of detail for an MF frame. What size paper do you normally print your MF stuff on? I bet it would look great on 16" x 12".

I too, feel the second image is more affective. The building in the far corner adds a sense of scale.

Thanks Vendee. Yes the 800x600 doesn't do MF justice. I have printed 16x20 and 13x19 and it looks great.

My first attempt at OTF long-exposure metering with the LX. These are between 4sec and around 1min. All on Ilford FP4+ 125 (lovely film).
