Love on the Rocks....

Juliet at Celebration Park

This is my darling Juliet beneath the cloudy Idaho skies, on a warm black rock on the bank of the Snake River. The light would change from brilliant to flat as clouds passed in front of the sun, so this roll of film required some thought about processing. I decided to process in 510-Pyro, semi-stand, but at 1:100 dilution instead of 1:300, or 1:500 as I usually do. I think this negative has potential.

Film: TMY-2
Format: 120 (6x7)
Developer: 510-Pyro
Dilution: 1:100
Time: 16:00
Temp: 70F
Agitation: Semi-Stand (continuous for 1st minute/ 10 seconds at 1/2 way point)

It looks like your semi-stand time for TMY-2 is maybe only about 3x the normal agitation time. Interesting.

Jim,

I'd say it's closer to 2X normal agitation, as this was very flat lighting, and development with normal agitation would probably have been around 7-1/2 to 8-1/2 minutes.

Hello Jim, I´m Rubén from Spain too. I congratulate for your photos and formulas. Recently I test 510-pyro formula in my films. I´m very satisfied even thought I need test more times, and kinds of agitation.

Regards,

Rubén
