    Thanks. It was a bit hard to find a shadow to meter! The shadow at the bottom of the tree was EV 10 and the brightest highlight I could find was EV 15. I placed the shadow on Zone III. It’s FP4, and I used a yellow filter, so my exposure was at ei 50, instead of 100. Although a lot of people would have just done N, I gave it N-1 development, which for me is Pyrocat 1:1:100 for 9 minutes with 15 seconds agitation at first and 10 seconds every minute, hand inversions in a JOBO tank.

    Excellent, thanks for elaborating--leaf litter for some reason gives me fits, but everything here just lays-in nicely.

    Hi Dave

    I know this wood fairly well, it's approx 3 miles from me, you've made a very interesting image on what was clearly yet another grey Middle England day...............

    regards

    (slight vignette removed by a slight crop, but only because I have two filter slots on the wide-angle hood - should perhaps remove one since rarely/never use multiple filters with B&W).

    Excellent: you must be pretty near me then.
    Overall v pleased with both. I actually underdeveloped both since the temperature was lower than I'd planned for, but knew they'd be fine for a scan.
