Sunset with palm trees.

Sunset with palmsNikon F4 with AF Nikkor 50mm f1.8. Made on Ilford FP4plus @ iso 100.
I definitely needed the zone system for this exposure & two bath development.

Needs very careful printing so that the shadow detail doesn’t go totally black – so hope the scan looks ok.

  1. It looks great, David. It’s a difficult technique to develop like this but your efforts paid off. I probably would toss 10 prints before I got a good one (in my printing days). Scanning is so much better.

    1. Thanks for those kind words – Ilford mutigrade IV FB matt and dilute developer seem to work for me. Although the old MG III selenium toned was even better.
      I must admit, I struggle scanning this type of image.
