Thanks guys. I had another shot a few minutes later and the light had totally gone.
Taken yesterday at sunset. Kodak 2D 8x10, 15" B&L projection Petzval, Kodak Low Contrast Aerial Duplicating Film (expired 1984).
You're very right. Aside from Gary's comment which is correct I also noticed that flare. That's why I mentioned it looked like shooting against the sun.
Part of the problem might reside in the fact that I had the darkslide pulled out for around a minute or two waiting for all the people, bicycles and cars to pass by. My bellows might not be all that light tight. Even the darkslide dropped down an inch and a half cropping part of the frame.
I was trying not to go back but now that you mentioned it I'll have to.
Can you give us some details? Film? Developer? EI?

Thanks for the compliment!
The details are: Graflex Super Speed Graphic, 135mm, f32, red filter, Fomapan 100. Exposure time somewhere around 12 seconds I think. R09 1+50 for 8 minutes, with 5 seconds agitation every 30 seconds.
