    Is this lens flare?

    Hello everyone. I recently shot a couple of rolls of Tri-X 400, rated them at 1600 and developed them in rodinal 1+100 for 90 minutes. I am puzzled by a couple of frames in which the right side of the picture is much darker then the left and they were taken in full sunlight. Am I correct to assume that this was either lens flare or a shadow of the rim of the lens projecting into the lens? The previous and following frames on the strip look OK so I don't think this is development related.

    What do you guys think?

    a shadow of the rim
    ......that would be vignetting and not lens flare I would think. However, I cannot tell if there is vignetting here or something else taking place. Most vignetting I've seen usually creeps in on all 4 corners. Lets see what others might think has taken place here.

    not sure -- i am unfamiliar with that developer combination, not to mention any developing time longer than 20 minutes -- was this stand developing or with agitation?

    if no agitation, I wonder if it is uneven development or something. Is the whole roll like this no matter which angle the camera was held at?

    is it just this frame? Maybe the sky on that side was just darker and your developer combination heightened it. i dunno...

    Hand/finger or camera strap on left side of the lens?

    I'll go with jcc on this. On a number of occasions I've blocked the lens when turning a rangefinder camera on it's side. You can't tell it happened until the negatives are processed.

    Is this the full frame? Looks a bit too long, like you've cropped it a bit.

    Which way does the shutter go on a III? Rating at 1600 in daylight, you're going to have some very fast shutter speeds. If one curtain is faster than the other you can get things like this (especially if one speeds up or slows down as they go)

    f/64 and be there.

    Could this be uneven development from doing Stand development?
