    Great images. I grew up on James Island! Hopefully I'll have my pinhole finished when I'm home to visit my parents this summer.

    Nice work Jon I just think the 2nd image is a bit flat there are probably reasons that I'm not familiar with.
    Very courageous all the same with such a large format.

    Thank you! I did overexpose these images. That made it difficult to scan them. It seems that the x-ray film is more sensitive in bright sunlight. Most of my previous images were made in open shade. I think I may have to go from the 80 ISO I used to something like 160 or 200 ISO in bright sunlight. I'll test that out.

    Wow. These don't look pinhole-ish at all. They are terrific.

    I was not happy with the contrast of image #2, so I applied a curve in Photoshop CS5 to improve the image:

    This one does not have an overall grey cast to it.....

    That is much better!

    Are you scanning the film, or doing contact prints then scanning?

    I'm just scanning the film. If I print, I'm using my Epson 3880.
