I don't usually like something centered but it works for this. Wonderful blacks and whites.

Oooh! I just ordered some Arista.EDU film last night...and about ten other miscellaneous rolls. And some Adonal. I'm pretty excited. Wondering why you did stop bath for 1.5 minutes???

@cmc1200 I love Arista.EDU, great grains; I've never been disappointed :) The D76 developer I'm using recommends 1.5min stop (I prefer stopping over water rinse as I've found my fix is more reliable if I've shifted the pH with stop). Constant agitation for 1.5min after dev (no rinse between) has given me the best results, and I use an indicating stop so I just reuse it until it changes color :)

@chewyteeth Thanks Dave; I was able to pinch the dof because of the close-up attachment (the extreme oblique angle doesn't hurt either) :)

@grizzlysghost I may need to try that. My negatives are all turning out slightly opaque. I've tried washing and fixing longer, but neither works. Maybe I need to stop a little longer.

I hate when I don't know what to say. The focus is fabulous.
