    I think you got a really special and strong image.
    The black dog looking toward the "glow" intrigues me... and it happened to appear just near the heart of the other dog...

    This is static, in the trade they are known as 'Christmas Trees'

    Much more common on movie film, rare on camera film.

    And yours is an A1 example...they are usually tiny.

    And I thought you recorded a Higg's Boson. Oh well, must stop giving advice on subjects I know less.

    More seriously, an interesting negative. I'd like to see how you interpret it when printing.

    amazing, I've never had this happen, even on the coldest dry days. I was photographing on a mountainside in northern Finland once, with my F3/MD4 on full blast, and thought for sure I would get static on some of the rolls, but I was spared.

    Advance the film very quickly.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I had thought that to avoid static you would want to use an advance in short slow bursts (ala the Cs mode on the Nikon F4), so as not to build up friction with the pressure plate.

    I was explaining to Chris how to get the static discharge on the film. I was not talking about avoiding it.

    Sirius, I know. I was on a mountainside in Northern Finland in the middle of January, dry, dry, frigid cold. I had my F3 with an MD4, shooting full blast continuous sometimes even, and I was amazed that I didn't get any static. I would've thought the MD4 would have made it happen in conjunction with the weather conditions.

    Thank you for your replies. The picture was outside taken on a cold winter day. Camera is a Nikon FE, film is Arista Edu 400. The spark could perhaps also have happened inside the changing bag while I was loading the film onto the reels, as indoor humidity was very low. Either way, it's a surprising and remarkably well-placed effect

    Dr Croubie: It's a negative scan. The spark is clearly visible on the negative, so the scanner isn't to blame.
