    The blue will not wash out. It's base fog.

I also enlarged some 35mm negatives on to it to create B&W positive transparencies, which came out way better than I expected. Strangely the second batch I processed came out great with the exception of having a noticeable blue tint. What is causing the blue tint, and does it mean I didn't rinse it well enough? Thanks.

    What is the function of the base fog, and is there a way to minimize its effect?

    I think it's just the color of the base material, isn't it?

    If so, I don't quite understand how you had two different results between batches.

    The first batch seems lighter. In any case I should clarify that I am speaking of the positive transparencies I created. My main objective in posting was to say that I am very happy with the new experience of trying X-ray film.

    Thodoris that is an excellent montage, you can’t really tell it is two different negatives.

    This is a composite picture, with two negatives printed simultaneously on the same paper.
    Wow. Just wow.

    It's actually the color of the blue polyester base. All x-ray film uses this substrate. It makes it easier for the radiologist to read.
