    As for the paper backing imprint, I notice that the original poster is a 35mm shooter only and as such, don't think that can be due to paper backing.

    That sure sounds like significant underdevelopment given the Pyrocat dilution you're working with. Check the Massive Dev Chart www.digitaltruth.com for some time/temp combinations as a starting point.

    I'm more of a PMK 1+2+50 kind of guy, but I have learned that pyro is a slow developer.

    So either (rarely), wait, (agitating in front of the TV, and try not to loose track of agitaion rate) , or (much more often) crank the temperture higher to get processing times down. I usually PMK at temperatures around 24C maintained with a water tempering bath to keep times under 10 minutes for the different films I dance through this soup

    The precise time I don't recall, because I work my times from a development number that is fed into a dial calculator shipped with old Kodak darkroom datguides.
    my real name, imagine that.

    The OP left a clue as to the format, "three of eight shots", tells me he was shooting a 6x9 camera. The number placement does indeed verify 120 roll film, and that the numbers had printed through. The last shot has some massive flair, but still a nice shot. A piece of black electricians tape over the red window will help some of this, especially on bright days. Enough light could be entering through the window to cause the imprint.

    Hi Nicholas,

    That is s shot of the commercial area of Singapore from the Marina Barrage. The building with the roof garden is the Marina Bay Sands. Its an Integrated resort (with Casino) and a huge infinity pool at the top. That's the roof garden you're looking at.

    And if you think the building looks wild from ground level, here's a view from the top !

    p.s to be quite candid, I was composting my shot when she stepped in front of me, it really wasn't intentional !

    Thanks Ian, I got my time by referring to the Massive Developer website's timing for PMK and reducing it by 20% (since that was what Sandy recommended). I'll try 14 minutes since that is what Rick is using as well. If it turns out, I'll let you all know :-)

    i'm developing this film in pyrocat hd (metol and sodium hydroxide) at 1:1:200 for 60 min. continuous agitation for the first minute then 5 inv. every 10 min. this film is rather resistant to fogging.
    You hit the nail on the head... the film was in my camera for a week and to aggravate matters, my camera was in my boot all the time. Ok, just learnt something :-). Thanks !

    Well analysed Rick, you're absolutely right on the format used :-)

    Actually, my camera came with a slider to block out the window but needless to say, being a 35mm shooter, I had always been able to see the film counter so I left mine open! Ok, that's another lesson learnt :-)

    my experience with the imprint was not due to the little red window. i have a bronica s and a rolleiflex - none which have the window. this problem can also occur with a brand new roll in the package.
