Looks a much better print Adrian. You probably could tweak it a little to get a tad more contrast in the mid tones, although I suspect the scan doesn't live up to the actual print.

Thanks for the Feedback Trevor. Well, that's the joy of printing, coming back to a print and tweaking it. I just wish I had the facilities to enlarge it to make a decent sized print. The actual print has a bit more contrast - the sky is better differentiated from the clerestory wall at the top of the building.

Adrian, I think 4x5 contact prints have a certain charm. But I fully appreciate your desire to make enlargements from these negatives.


One can indeed spend a great deal of time 'tweaking' ones printing, but you've got to draw the line somewhere or one will never move on to new work Smile

I agree - they're wonderful keepsakes - well the ones that turn out ok. In an attempt to try to fix the low contrast problem, I've spent the day messing about with grey cards, different exposures and developing. I took a couple of shots of a grey card on the 5x4, and developed them separately. Even after pushing a stop (7 1/2 mins in HC110 dil. B) it wouldn't go past about Z4 1/3 (probably the upper limit of a pushed Z3) So, I'm wondering if there's problems with light meters and shutters! Anyway, off on holiday tomorrow to Cornwall with 8 DDS loaded with film!

Have a great trip and hope you have good lighting!


The upper zones (6-8) move more readily than the lower ones. As you probably know most light meters are calibrated to the 18% mid-grey (Kodak grey card), zone 5, but some are calibrated at zone 6. The accuracy of shutters is a perennial problem. One of my LF lenses gives about 1 stop over exposure.
