Hi Erik,

If there are any film processing problems to be seen then it is very often visible in the part of the negative with sky and especially where the sky is uniform in tone.

In my experience, this part of the negative tends to be unforgiving to processing tolerances.

I've tried looking closely at your scan but it's too hard to tell if there are any marks or streaks visible and if so, if can they be attributed to the processing of the film.

Be very critical of this and similar negatives and try to be objective in ascertaining irregularities in negative/print density/tone.

By the way, initially, I thought this print was a bit lacking in contrast but this is greatly improved by "clicking" on the image.

All in all, certainly a great start and as you're finding out consistency is key. I'm looking forward to seeing more!
