    When I worked tech support we called this an eye-dee-ten-tee (ID10T) error. I loaded the film wrong and this is what i got back from the lab. Oh well. At least now I have a roll to practice loading onto my reels before I start processing my black-and-white again.

    Technical details: Hasselblad 501CM, 80mm lens, 1/4 sec at f/16.

    Maybe try bracketing your exposures... Never know, you might get some fine detail in your blacks :tongue:





    We all make mistakes, and with LF, they get to be bigger ones !

    I'm always surprised when this doesn't happen to me. It would probably lead to a 12 year hiatus. :smile: Condolences.

    Long ago in Yosemite Valley two of my friends and I spent the night shooting fresh snow under a full moon. After a 30-minute exposure one of my friends went back to his 4x5 and let out an expletive that echoed through the valley. He had forgotten to remove the dark slide. The three of us stayed up until dawn shooting and came back with nothing worth printing, but we had fun.
