    Gibellini Bellatrix 810, Nikkor-Q 300 f9, Tri-X 320. Developed with Df96 monobath in SP-810. Slight light leak - maybe need to check the baffles?

    Very windy, rainy, cloudy and late in the afternoon from a 3rd floor balcony at an inn on Chincoteague Island, this was a difficult shot.

    Gibillini Bellatrix 8x10, Nikkor Q 300mm, Arista EDU Ultra 400, HC-110h in an SP810 daylight tray, scanned on an Epson V800 and post processed in Lightroom.

    Quartzite Falls in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Toyo 45AII, Schneider Symmar 135mm, Delta 100, D76 1:1.

    My first attempt at shooting a waterfall with large format, I think the water is a bit overexposed. I learned a few things with this shot. I need to get a 90mm lens, 135mm just isn't wide enough for waterfalls, something I plan on shooting much more of. I had to crop this a bit to straighten it out and it's still not perfectly straight. When composing, I had a hard time seeing the trees at the top to level off of since they were in shadow. I need to get a 3 axis hot shoe level to level the camera. I also learned that my 135mm lens sticks at longer shutter speeds. This was supposed to be a 1 sec exposure, but 1 sec on the lens sounded more like 2 seconds. 1/2 sec sounded close to a second, but it might be a bit long. I also had to clean up quite a few scratches in PS. I had difficulty loading this holder and figured the film was getting scratched.

    With all the dark rocks your exposure was probably right, but perhaps just needed a little underdevelopment to hold back the water. As for the 90mm - a lot of times I can't get close enough to waterfalls to use the 90mm because of the spray. Don't dismiss your 135 yet. Good composition!

    Thanks John. Maybe you're right about 90mm being too wide, I guess it depends on how close you want to get to the falls. I'm used to using my 16-35 on a full frame. I metered off the part of the water in the middle that looks a little bright and added 3 stops. I had 5 stops of range so I figured it was about right.
