    The above image upload link inadvertently saved with a dual "http//:" prefix and fails. Here's a corrected one:

    It did have a speedy and safe journey. It arrived here today.

    The old paper adds to the impression of the age of the old hood ornament.

    Thank you.

    Uploaded a scan to the Print Gallery - The original wouldn't have fitted in the scanner, so this one is a smaller version done at the same time.

    My print is officially in the mail! wow, i was gonna send it about a month ago, but having since spent a great amount of time in the darkroom everything has changed, and so, many darkroom hours later, a different print emerged.

    I had troubles finding a "lab" that still could make a (decent) chemical print out of a colour negative. All seem to have moved to scanning and inktjet printing.
    But I found a small photo store that still can print chemically upto 30x40 cm (12x16 inch). They stopped developing C-41 this summer, sadly enough. The chemicals where too expensive and they didn't have enough customers anymore.
    So I'll have some prints made next week and will ship that weekend.

    Dwayne's still does chemical prints but I think they use a light jet so you still need a scan, I don't think they do chemical prints from a piece of film directly, although I could be wrong...

    Question, when is it no longer "Blind"?

    I forgot to send info on what my image was and settings etc.

    I was wondering can I just post it here? I can't find the user to PM directly?

    Are they even supposed to know who I am?

    Well... If you get this image, these are the settings (although I remember it being 2 minutes not 60 seconds as the exposure time, however the sun was coming up over an hour period so perhaps this one was shorter (also I went from Velvia 50 to Velvia 100 and so maybe I shortened the exposure and didn't remember now that it's been over a year.

    Well... Forgive me if this is the wrong move...

    The print I sent...
