    Rebate ghosting on print?

    I'm not sure what's causing this problem. It isn't the neg carrier, as the negative wasn't as perfectly parallel as the ghosting suggests.

    Is this a contact?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    No, just a really low quality scan.

    They are visible on the print, not just the scan, I should add. The image shows two parts of the print where the ghosting occurs, if that's what the confusion was.

    Well I have seen this before with contact sheets while using glass, but since you say it isn't a contact print - what's the actual edge of the negative look like under a loupe?

    The negative doesn't show any signs of it.
    I've also checked if there's any reflection from the edges of the easel, which was my initial thought.

    Well, is this the only print whatsoever that shows it? Or is this some kind of consistent thing you can duplicate?

    If it's only at the edges and the rest of the print is fine, I'd double-check the enlarger lens to make sure there is nothing wrong, optically - but it doesn't immediately seem the source to me. I've definitely seen this kind of "blooming" before and it's never immediately bothered me, but usually my edges are fairly clean.

    It's happened once before, but wasn't such a problem.

    Since they are visible around all the edges of the print, I'm wondering if it's a reflection of the negative on the neg carrier glass or perhaps the condenser? The carrier has two panes of glass, if that might have any factor in it.

    Pretty normal to have 2 panes. Here's a variable though: what was the enlarger lens set to? Wide open?

    f/16 from 5.6. Just did another test at f/11, still the same.
