This time I wanted to try a high contrast, sharp negative, so I used this T-Max 100 image from summer. The 8X10 is really sharp, but the upper left of the image is a little less so, and I think that means the lens board on the enlarger needs aligning. Where's that manual. happy.gif

nicely done.... yes a little less sharp in the upper left... I guess the neg is okay (before you start aligning the enlarger...).

Perfect image for a test print... like the edge of the print as well.

Hi Casey,

The negative platform clips the negative a bit, and that's the edge of the image you're seeing. For now I'm not cropping; I figure I need all the negative I can get for 8X10 size prints.

This one is from last night. It's Tri-X @320, which made for a sharper image than I expected, and while it's hard to see here, the tones are just lovely on paper.

Tonight I'm going to try fiber based paper, which is supposed to be trickier than the resin paper I started with. We'll see.

Cheers,

Jeff

I hope you don't mind but I pulled up the "original" images for a comparison... of course what's to compare second generation...

film->print->scan above...
film->scan->http://www.network54.com/Forum/258889/message/1293899487/Goobers

but you can tell the difference even from this distance... nice
