    Excellent lighting and composition.

    However more information on processing/exposure/printing is needed.

    Jay, I don't recall the situation you refer to, but linking to someone's photo as above isn't the same as copying it as an attachment. I don't know which you did, but linking seems perfectly fine to me.

    For that matter, how do you know richardmellor isn't the same person as Igor Amelkovich? Either or both could be pseudonyms...

    No, it is not a staining (or tanning) developer. It is a PQ-Glycin developer that contains a lot of sodium sulfite.

    Offtopic question: provided this picture has been taken with a Hasselblad 503, why would it have this distinctive T-shaped border that's the mark of LF film holders? Am I just ignorant of Hassies or that guy digi-cropped it?

    At any rate, black borders are way overrated now. Even Diane Arbus stopped using them after she started the fashion...

    No, a standard Hassy rollfilm (or Kiev, Hartblei, Arax) back does not produce a border like that (at least, none of my backs do). For that matter, neither do any of my LF film holders.

    If it started out life as a silver print, it was probably printed with a custom border mask. Otherwise it was probably done with Photoshop or some other digital image processing program.

    Nice image IMO - but it really doesn't tell me much about this film in comparison with others.

    Looks like a bog standard Hasselblad border to me - even with the V-notches that are said to be Viktor Hasselblad's signature :smile:

    LF film holders leave a distinctly different pattern, and very few of them are square.

    Ah, I see now. I'm mixing up those borders. Thanks for the precisions; I was about to launch a holy war on digital imitations of film borders.

    I'll join you on that, but in this case there's no evidence.
