    Woo, that nice falloff is so nice. Surprisingly sharp in the center!

    Here's a shot inspired by David Emitt Adams. Was more of a test to see what's possible. I'm limited by having to shoot upwards for now so that the prepared "plate" doesn't fall out of the dry plate holder when I pull the darkslide.

    I have a project in a cemetery near my flat. Currently I have made some 30 plates but I am far from finished but can only photograph on weekends. Beethoven and Schubert used to be buried there but were moved to the new large cemetery which was opened in the 19th century and this one was converted into a park but a small area which was walled and is since only accessible by getting the key from the Vienna gardens authority which is responsible for the upkeep.

    5.5 x 14 inch black glass ambrotype

    This scan makes the plate look terrible. As far as development and exposure goes, this is one of the best plates I've done. It is so bright. The light was changing so I had to develop by eye and I got it bang on.

    That is a spectacular ambrotype, Alex! I'm envious. Well done.

    Plate looks great. How are you scanning your plates? Getting a lot of green on my monitor.
