As promised - "A Few of My Favourite Things" - the first image made with the zero image 6x9 in 6x7 format. Exposure 2hrs odd under a reading lamp in the spare bedroom. Couldn't wait for something more inspirational. HP5 dev'd in PMK Pyro for 13mins. Scan of neg - my scanning is not clever! he good lady wife and god-daughter missing by default - the wife wouldn't sit still for the exposure time and my other lady 330 miles away at the time.

Really nice and sharp - looks like you are calibrated now and ready to roll. You seemed to get the exposure pretty good - I am wondering if you formulated that or if some Kentucky windage was used.

I'll admit to a spotmeter reading off a gray card and exposure adjusted using the pinhole designer software recommendations for reciprocity failure with hp5. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Good old guestimation coming up as soon as I finish scanning next image - forgot lightmeter (:

Good test shot. Seems you can get excellent results with a 6x7 or 6x9!
