    It is a sort of a frame for the image.

    If you are curious about whether the sprocket holes might enhance a particular image, print it both ways, and then decide.

    Generally, I think they detract from a good image, and don't enhance a mediocre one.

    Only on contact print pages as the frame numbers are actually useful there.

    My self I think that sprocket holes make the photo look as though you are too cheap to buy a proper negative holder. They add very little to a photo except to advertise the type of film that you use. So in other words "Not a chance in my prints"

    Indeed. I've seen a digi-pic in a 4x5 Velvia frame which still had the EXIF info from the camera it was taken on, and an over-saturated colour pic with a sprocket-hole border. The "film"? Acros apparently :rolleyes:

    Showing the sprocket holes can work very well in the right circumstances. The Rule is not to show them (as obvious from some of the replies). It is an important rule , and as artists we need to know the rules in order to know when to break them.

    Printing multiple frames at the same time is one instance that sprocket holes can become a valuable part of the image. And when it is important to the image to be identified as a photograph, sprocket holes can work.

    Such devices are not just limited to photography. Lithographers have often matted their prints to include the impression marks of the stone around the image, watercolor painters show the torn (not cut) edge of their paper. One could even argue that some of these "marks" have become (or always have been) part of the image, such as the brush marks of an oil painting.

    I include the film rebate in my LF platinum/palladium prints. Others such as Richard Avedon have also used the rebate to form part of the image ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Avedon ). In one of my images, the widening of the rebate was distracting, so I removed it by scratching it off the neg...The print is below...the area scratched off is in the lower right.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    showing the sprocket holes calls attention to the photographic process. If doing so is the point of your image, then show them. If not, then avoid it.
