    Looks fabulous as a 40x50 inch print, I have no need to go larger than this...

    Thanks, Randy. I tried to keep the tones and contrast on par with the contact prints. I eventually found that once I switched to the tank and hangar method my contrast was going up. I went from printing with an Ilford Multigrade #1 and 1.5 filter with tray processing to a #.5 and 1 with tank and hangars. I think from here on out, I'll reduce my developing times and even chill out on the agitation.

    We are all nerds.

    If people's eyes glaze over when you tell them about your camera and x-ray film, they know you are a hopeless nerd.

    These days it is actually a compliment.

    Lee,

    Nice counterpoint with the larger prints and small contacts. My impression from the gallery installation shot is that worked quite well.

    Sergei, I never knew you were here. Do you have the old ones? A few years ago they came out with all new coins and paper money. They're smaller now.

    Well bugger.. i need to make new trip sometime. I had pocketfuls after visits 11 years ago. Seoul was nice landing point going between US and Russia - used to be great way to fly directly from DFW. Come in eve, spend night near Incheon, fly forward using Asiana and Korean Air. Then prices jumped up and connections kinda got iffy, so now i am normally taking other way around on Singapore Air, through Moscow.

    My uncle collects coins, so i am always making point to bring him something from countries where i am going to and back then he wasnt in Korea ever . Nowdays of course is is going there about every year or even more often to teach at university in Seoul, almost feeling local

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    Randy, I'm sorry I can't find the page with your 7x17 xray film sizes. I can measure my holders now and would like to know the exact size of xray film again. If anyone can do measurements in centimeters, that would help me a lot. I've cut down a paper and 18cm / 180mm is just a bit too large. 179mm would probably fit better. My converter says 7 inches is 177.8 mm which would be ideal. 180mm is 7.0866 inches.
