Toward Sonoma Mountain

Toward Sonoma Mountain
View toward Sonoma Mountain from Willow Street near Cotati, California. Continuing experiments with overexposing and then developing with dilute cold developer. Not colored. Just scanned, inverted and some levels adjustment.

I meant this one to be 2 stops overexposed, but the light was failing and in my hurry I miscalculated and overexposed by 1 stop. So it is very similar to one I already tried. Just a few minutes after I made this, the sunlight in in the foreground was gone.

So far developed this way:
About 1/2 stop over: Here. Almost a normal negative.
About 1 stop over: this one and Here.
And about 1-1/2 stops over: Here.

Wow, those are some interesting tones! I'm reminded of how I sometimes get bluish tones in solargraphs. Fascinating experiments!

Hi Jacki, you're right. On the negative, the sky is reminiscent of the color on a solargraph, and inverts to blue. The one with a little less exposure was almost steel blue-grey. The one with more had a lighter blue and some hints of pink.... And the main thing is that in all of them you can actually see the clouds in the sky which is difficult with a paper negative!

Ethereal and engaging. I really love the scene and the look you've achieved with this... I've got so much to learn, and so much newfound inclination to actually try to do it!

Thank you Colin! My advice is to have fun. I have plenty of failures that you don't see here, but the fun is in the doing. This adventure of overexposing and then really slow development of paper negatives all started from a mistake!

I like the colors a lot. Do you also see the eye in the sky? On the left side?

Thanks Sandra, wow, yes I see it!
I've been so busy lately but looking forward to trying more of these.
