    This negative is from a roll of film that I used for my first foray into 'stand development'. Rodinal 1:100 at approx 20°C for 60 minutes. Slow inversions for a full 2 minutes at the beginning and let set for an hour, do not touch. Water bath and fix. The negatives are stunning in detail and tonal range. I am a convert.

    Wonderful detail. The sparks, the detail of the other stuff on the work table. You are really getting a lot out of that camera. Well done.

  5. Thanks for wasting my whole afternoon reading about 'stand development'!:biggrin:
    That really is beautiful. It must be breathtaking large.:smile: I order a little Rodinal every time I order from Freestyle, stockin' up.
  6. Thanks, everyone. Forgot to mention that exposure was 1/15sec at f2.0. And you really need to see it bigger to realise the massive tone range in this negative.


    Happy to take the blame for your 'wasted' afternoon. I have just souped a roll of Efke R25(120) in Rodinal 1:100 that I plan to let sit for an hour. We shall see...
  7. Bravo

    That is a terrific image, thanks for sharing it :smile:
