    Ned!! Wow!! You really outdid yourself. A beautiful salt print of a beautiful subject (not just a silly cow ...).
    And you really made out on the theme, printing with your subject itself. Neat interpretation of the MSA theme. Its a triplet: subject, chemicals and print!

    The negative is also very nice in itself. Invert the scan, make a digital positive (as an inter-negative) and print a nice carbon print with it: "Salt by night" you can call it. Should be great too.

    I also like the pinhole image. If you would make a salt print of it also, it might be as good or even better than the one above.

    That I can imagine!! It must be fun and relaxing, sitting at the pont, reflecting on cameras, life, prints and who knows what.
    I could sit there a whole day myself - only to make these three shots. That's why I like to wander around with only my pinhole camera loaded with 120 roll film, only to make 4 panorama shots (4x17 cm). Life is out there - waiting for us to be photographed ...

    In short: congratulations on this beautiful and worthy contribution to this MSA. Very inspiring. You've got my vote.

    I took this image because of two reasons: Of course I wanted to contribute to the MSA 'Salt', but also I opened a pack of Polaroid T-54 (Expired 05/06) which I had since a long time in my refrigerator. I bought it about 2009, together with a Model 545i Film Holder - and now I thought I might be a good idea to try if both work - in view of the 'New 55' Kickstarter project - and they do work fine!

    Equipment Used: Linhof Kardan Color, Schneider Symmar 150mm/f5.6, 33cm total lens image distance; Exposure: 0.5 sec at f22 (incident light measurement 1/10 sec at f 22); Film & Developer: Polaroid T-54, 100 ASA instant b/w film

    It's been interesting to view all of the submissions so far. Still a couple of days to participate in this somewhat abstract topic. I look forward to reviewing it all in the following days and make a decision.

    Can't wait to see what your choices will be. I have faith in your opinion, but I'm curious nevertheless.
    Good luck, I hope you sleep well the next few nights ...

    Life has been... Trying... As of late, so I'll have to have my first submission as my only, doubt I'll get more done in the next day.

    Anyway, looking forward to seeing the chosen winner, this was a good one.

    Ok here is my last minute submission... I hope it is not too late! I took this image just an hour ago, fighting the vanishing light before dawn...

    You may call it 'conceptual photography' - but I call it showing a model which I set up to explain the nanometer for public outreach in our physics department.

    It is based on - of course - salt! and explained as follows:

    You look at this small grain of salt in the loupe - a cube with about 0.5 mm edge length (you can compare the scale paper).

    Then you imagine it enlarged so much that the chlorine (or sodium) atoms (which have a distance of 0.4 nm) get the size of pinheads (about 3 mm in distance) which is shown with this cube-corner of plaster made in a replica technique. (One can 'touch' these pinhead-atoms.) - This is an enlargement by a factor of 7,500,000.

    How large will then be the grain of salt?

    I leave the calculation up to you... But it is no accident that the view goes out into the landscape with a few km distance...

    Equipment Used: Linhof Kardan Color, Schneider Super-Angulon 75mm f5.6, a lot of lens and back tilt; Exposure: 5 sec at f32 (the loupe got some additional ilumination with a torch light); Film & Developer: Polaroid T-54, 100 ASA instant b/w film (I also made an exposure on 4x5 TriX film - but for this last minute submission the Polaroid has to be sufficient...)
