    Yes, very nicely done!

    I use a pinhole self-portrait as my avatar.

    8x10 on litho film, developed in 1:~6 Dektol -- camera was a 250sht box of photopaper
    Pinhole of undetermined size (in a brass shim, probably .002 or .003" thick)
    Exposure was around 5 minutes. Camera less than a foot from my nose.
    Cyanotype (obviously!)

    The below is not a pinhole shot, but I would like to share it anyway...I hope no one minds too much. The great shot above just reminds me of it...

    Thank you Vaughn, and I've always liked your avatar!

    That is a very nice carbon print, something I would like to try someday......
