    Hi there,

    Developed my buddy's T-Max 100 and 400 simultaneously.
    I used stand development with 1:100 Rodinal, Ilford Rapid Fix; rinse; Photo-Flo.
    Now, I've heard that T-Max and Rodinal don't really go together all too well, but my friend insisted I give it a shot anyway, since it wasn't really an important roll and he knows I'm new to this and still experimenting.
    While the 100 came out fine, the 400 did not...
    Here's a photo for reference: http://kevinandrewsmock.com/SAMPLE IMAGE.jpg
    Anybody know what this could be result of?

    Thanks!

    Dust? A lot of it?? Kind of looks like it to me but I've never gotten that much. Used to use a darkroom at a college and those students never cleaned anything so took along my own microfiber cloth to dust - doesn't take much to show up.

    Edit - is it on the negatives??

    After close examination of the negative, yes, it is on the negative...
    I have not a single clue what it might be because nothing else seems to be wrong except for these little organically shaped elements hanging around on the negative!

    If its' something on the surface of the negatives, rinse them off, use a wetting agent and hang them up to dry.
