    I like it. I've been playing around with a similar concept using a 200mm Imagon wide open with the aperture disks removed. I won't say the effect is the same but it is similar.

    I know what you mean. Most of the Sf lens are really soft and flat which are very difficult for contact printing or alternative process. Thanks for the input

    I haven't followed along. Have you shared your design process and/or implementation? It looks like you've achieved a pretty nice effect.

    Overall I'm very pleased with the contrast on the negative.
    The lens is 9 in at F 5.5 comes with water house stop or can be mounted directly to copal 3 shutter. It will cover 5x7 and whole plate.

    Hmmmmmm...a 15" for 8x10 sounds mighty tasty - esp if one could stop it down a bit to moderate the softness as wished
