    Here's my first home processed slide film (or color film for that matter). I used the Arista Rapid E-6 kit to develop it.

    Just a shot of one of the lakes in my town.

    Taken with a Zone VI 4x5 camera and Fujinon W 125mm F5.6 lens, using a 2 stop graduated ND filter. Shot on Velvia 100 and processed with Arista E-6 chemicals.

    Thank you everyone. Here are a couple more I just scanned.

    Longs Peak

    Shot on a ride up in the mountains. This place is about 40 minutes from home on the awesome Peak-to-Peak byway.

    Spouting Rock Falls

    I just returned from a camping trip to the Glenwood Canyon. Here is a photo of an interesting falls that is right above Hanging Lake in the Glenwood Canyon of Colorado. The falls "spouts" from a hole in the cliff side. I'm not sure if it is coming from an underground spring or river or what.

    Shot with a Zone VI 4x5 and Fujinon W 125mm F5.6 lens. Velvia 50 developed with the Arista Rapid E-6 developer. 3 second exposure at F45 and rated at 40 ISO

    Spent the weekend camping in the White River Wilderness. This is a shot looking to the west right outside my truck camper.

    Colorado CJ, congrats - impressive! Both for the pictures made, and the convincing results obtained at the 1st attempt with the Arista kit.
    How do you project? Overhead projector?
    To the chemists among us: Where is the Formalin (Formaldehyde) hidden in this kit?
    I understood it was needed to stabilize at least one of the colour dyes, and protect the film in general.
    All the best & good light!
