4x5 for 365 project (5/365)

This is a replica station that was built in the 1990s to look like an old Reading Railroad station from the 1800 and 1900s.  It is located in Port Clinton, Pennsylvania and is home to the business offices of the Reading Blue Mountain and Northern Railroad. 

Camera: Calumet 45NX 4x5 large format monorail view camera. 

Lens: Rodenstock Geronar 150mm F6.3 lens in a Copal 0 shutter.  

Film: Ilford Deltaa 100.  100 ISO Negative B&W sheet Film, shot at box speed. 

Exposure: 1/15th second @ F22. The exposure was difficult on this one as we had vanishing afternoon Winter light and approaching mist on the mountain behind the station.  I was only left with enough light for a single shot otherwise I would have tried for a more interesting composition.

Development: Self Developed film in Kodak Xtol 1+2 dilution in Paterson Universal Tank using the Taco Method. 13 minutes @ 20 degrees Celsius. Tap water stop bath. Ilford Rapid Fixer. Photo-Flo. Hung on shower curtain to dry on film clips. 

Scanning: Negative scanned with Epson V600 in two scans and merged back together in PhotoShop since the V600 doesn't natively support 4x5 scans in one pass.  Cropped to taste in Lightroom 4.
