    Christoph,
    Just a guess but looks like light reflecting off the inside flat surfaces of the camera or film holders. Make sure everything is flat black non reflective inside the camera very close to the film plane. I have noticed this a lot when light reflects off of the edges of a negative holder in the enlarger. That can be solved by beveling the edges of the holder so the reflection does not fall on the negative surface. What you have might be refections off of flat faces of your film holders.

    Does anyone had a clue as to how those strange lines at the left side and the bottom of the negative could have been produced? I have no idea but they seem to be occuring on all the negatives, so it's not the film holder...and as they were developed in trays it couldn't have happened as a result of the development...
    Could a light leak from the camera bellows produce such strange lines?
    Lovely images and perhaps a leak. Or just over-sharpening?

    Love these portraits. About the lines, wouldn't the light leak produce a brighter line, not darker? Maybe there was something that touched the emulsion in that place slightly when developing?(No idea, just guessing)

    Very nice images They look over sharpened to me. As far as a light leak, I really don't understand. Frank, you know a whole lot more than me. Could you please explain?

    Thank you! That's it!!! I did some quite extensive tilt, shift and swing for these portraits to get the eyes right into the plane of focus so a reflection so that must have caused the reflection!!

    And thank you all for your comments, I guess I'll have to get a new screen, it doesn't look oversharpened to me ^^ but then again it might be because of my terrible glasses

    Christopher, excellent work; they are nicely lit, and she seems quite relaxed. If your film is curling any, it could be scanning artifacts. You'd have to check for those lines with your own eyes looking at the negatives to rule out the scanner.

    Thank you!
    Well, they are definitely on the negatives and as Fomapan is really thin it doesn't curl too much, acutally it's a pleasure to scan compared to other film types
