    A wonderful picture. I like it a lot.

    It looks cloudy out. Were you shooting PAN F+ on a cloudy day? How'd you get that to work out? I can't shoot FP4+ at 125 on a cloudy day with out getting a crappy image. I can't imagine what PAN F+ would look like.

    For some reason when I saw the title I was sure I was going to be seeing a Canon camera get blown to smithereens. I'm glad that wasn't the case. Good composition--I like it a lot.

    Thanks a lot. :D

    I got it to work because I was using a tripod and cable release. Most of my pictures from yesterday were very close to completely closed aperture with 28mm and 135mm, so I really needed the tripod. I'll get some more uploaded today to show.

    I love the combination of PanF and Rodinal when using a good lens and a good tripod -- sharp sharp sharp! I'm loving this 28mm lens too -- I was only about a foot from the tip of that canon!

    The more I post here, the more I appreciate that signature... ;)

    I'm also very much appreciating what real film and real developer does for your b+w work

    Out of curiosity, are you printing also, or just scanning from the negs?

    Thanks Chris, I appreciate that. :D

    I'm not printing, sadly. I develop at home and use a changing bag instead of a darkroom. I can get access to the University of Edinburgh darkroom, but it's way across town and none of my shots have really inspired me recently to want to print them. I know I'd be able to get MUCH more out of my shots if I printed them though.

    I'm scanning the negs with a CanoScan 8600F.
