Very Nice B&W's. I also really liked the first gate picture. It has a dream like feel to it.

Hi Patty,

I tried answering a bit earlier, but when I tried to post, my new wireless IP was down, and all I got was an error screen, so I'll try again.

The first example is almost certainly dust. I think it's more of a problem with high res scans than prints, but the fibers pretty much make this a good call. When I was a commercial photo printer, we used an air filtered print room, humidifiers, and 90#/inē compressed air lines to each printer, and we still had dust problems. I've found microfiber cloths to do a good job with dust, so this might be something to try.

I think your second example might be air bubbles though. IIRC, the spots show up on prints as less distinct than dust on the neg spots, so it might be a good idea to review your developing procedures to eliminate this as a possibility. For some reason, contaminants in the developer solution comes to mind also, but this might be way out there, but if you mixed the chemicals with extremely hard water, this might be something to check. -- again remember, it's been a long time. . .

Great b&w work, but choosing one of the gates above the other is hard. Somehow I like the first one better, but this can be simply because it is larger.
