    This is about as good as I've ever seen for home made dry plates, very nice indeed.

    Thanks, Alan. Having seen 19th-century enthusiast-made dry plates, I know they're capable of very fine quality. I'm still fairly hit and miss with mine, but my hit rate is slowly increasing...

    Contrast and sharpness on this is stunning.

    Thanks, Jim! I was certainly stunned when it came out of the wash. A fortuitous combination of a good batch of emulsion, good light (late afternoon autumn sun open shade), and a pretty good guesstimate on the exposure... I'll take it!

    Yes, this is great. Best contrast and sharpness for a self coated emulsion image I have seen.

    Thanks, chassis. Have to give credit to the folks at Eastman workshops, whose recipe and tutelage I depend on.

    This is awesome - far better than any results I had with dry plates, when I tried them
