    This was taken in Glenwood Springs, CO. Shot on Fomapan 200 in D-76. First attempt at adding a vignette in the darkroom:

    Kentmere 100 push processed to 800 in D-76. Aggressively cropped to bring out the grain:

    I take it you scanned your prints and that's what we're seeing?

    Do you find that the scanned image on the computer screen accurately represents what you see on the print? I'm asking because I'm thinking of doing that myself.

    Well, I'd definitely ask someone more experienced than me before dropping $100 on a flat bed scanner, but I'm pretty satisfied with the results. The image usually comes in from the scanner looking a bit washed out, but a small boost in contrast usually does it. On the other hand, my monitor isn't calibrated, so maybe that's why it looks washed out...
