    Re: post your trees!

    Near Peru, Illinois. Linhof Master technica, 120mm 5.6 Rodenstock, HP5. I introduced myself a couple days ago. This is around my fourth or fifth LF negative, so I welcome criticism. I referee high school football (American) so I can take even harsh criticism of my work........"You can insult the call all you want, coach; but if it gets personal, you're going to be eating dinner with your wife this evening."

    It looks like there are some faint vertical streaks in the center. Is it lens flare/reflection or something on the negative itself? It looks like some of mine when I scan them before they are completely dry.

    Re: post your trees!

    Thanks for that. It is a distinct possibility, and one that I have not considered before, that I have not let negatives dry long enough. I was pretty excited to get this one scanned, and dried it per my usual for 35mm negatives. Is there a minimum for how long LF negatives should be left to dry? Scanner was Epson V800 and has not shown a banding or streaking problem when used with 35mm. Thanks for the comment. The shot was a bit "contre jour" as the morning sun is probably about 30 to 40 degrees left of image.

    The Epson flatbed scanners have a well documented problem with 'banding" that is especially noticeable with 120 roll format negs. Take a look at this article. Epson has acknowledged the problem is a design flaw in the device and has issued replacement neg holders for these scanners which eliminate the problem. (Yes, I requested the modified holder and can verify that it addresses the problem) If you contact Epson and talk to someone there about your problem, they will likely send you a replacement neg holder for your scanner.

    I did go check out the thread on Epson scanners/holders. It looks like it was written in 2015. My scanner was purchased this year and, I believe, came with the improved holders. Oddly enough, I had to purchase a set of the old holders because the new ones feature a clear plastic bed that is supposed to hold the film flat. It does hold the film flat; but , in my experience, any convenience provided by this new feature is negated by the fact that the clear plastic functions as a horrible dust trap. Frustrating. I'm going to give a go to the idea of allowing my negatives to dry longer.

    AlexGard -- for some reason, that scene looks very Australian. Nicely done!
