    Re: Still-Life Images, 2014

    Nice light Steve, strong simple composition. Like how everything contrasts against each other and how the background looks.

    PMK... active life in an open tray?

    How long will it be good for in an open tray? Could I be safely developing 8x10 one at a time over the course of a few hours in the same batch of PMK?

    Can Borax (sodium tetraborate) can be substituted for sodium metaborate in PMK?
