That could be very interesting. Nothing happens for me. Do I have to enable something?

Maybe it has something to do with your Pop up Blocker needs to be disabled ??? Not sure this link will work if you're not a FaceBook member but give it a try.

I am on OS X and tried Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome with the pop-up blockers off and the image does appear but there is no corner to peel.

Facebook, of which I am a member, did not 'peel'.

When I enable java for browsers, the dialog simply fails, reverting to "NO". I'll figure it out eventually.

There is a small thumbnail at the bottom of the page I am referring too, click on that, not the imbedded pix of my two cameras which is at the top of the page. Hope this helps

The use of the word 'corner' is confusing. The only thing I could get the corners to do is resize the window.

Hi Steve,
Beautiful image, wonderful range of tones.
I remember the print from your workshop last year - most remarkable.

Regards,

Dennis

Great story and photograph. It still amazes me today what I remember when I look one of my photographs. The people with me, the setup, and even my thoughts at the time.

Hard-won battles for the shot the photographer wanted are always interesting to read about. Planning, perseverance.

Hi Steve,

My pleasure !
An image like that needs to be seen, so I figured a direct link would help those having difficulty.
(I simply copied the page address from my browser and placed it in my post)

BTW Steve - I noticed you did not mention the actual development details in your comments.

"I returned home to develop the film and sure enough the first negative suffered from camera shake and was unusable. The development scheme I use is long and tedious... "

Someone is bound to ask you to disclose the magic you invoked to develop that negative...
Unless you want to volunteer !

Best,

DD

Thx Dennis, The negative was developed using an Extreme Minimal Agitation sequence to bring the highlights down 3 zones, or N-3. Procat HD in a vertical tube at a dilution of 4 A - 2.5 B to 825ml water @ 70 degrees for a total time of 27 minutes with 2 intermittent agitation cycles of 15 seconds each
