I plan to make this part of a sequence:
I'm planning to put them all in the same frame with a multi-opening matte.
I will have to dodge/burn the foreground and the sky to make all three consistent.
In that process, I'll probably end up lessening the mark. I can probably burn it in a little, in the process.
Maybe I can spot some of it out by hand. I'll be spotting by hand anyway...
What I can't fix in the darkroom or by spotting I'll just re-crop by covering over with the matte.
Do you think a "Cinemascope" style crop would look good with these? I was thinking about arranging them in a horizontal row.
I don't have a glass negative carrier but I'll see if I can track one down. It's a 120 format negative.
The enlarger is a Beseler 23C. I also have an Omega D-2 but the Beseler is the better of the two, condition-wise. Better lenses.
