Hello All,

has anyone seen this before and could give me some advice how to avoid it please.
In the sky of the picture below i have some strange patterns.
I assume it is maybe caused by too much wetting agent and uneven drying. Could that be the reason? What do you think?

Fomapan 100 4x5
D76 1+1 ISO050 N 13:00 min
Ilford Rapid Fix 5min
Stearman Press SP445
Fotospeed wetting agent 3-5ml / 500ml

1660

Many thanks in advance for your help.
Wish you all a nice weekend
Cheers
Oliver

Looks like foaming or something similar during development. Could be a build up of wetting agent in the tank, over zealous agitation.

Give all parts of the tank a good wash in warm water, if you use a pre-soak keep any wetting agent to the bare minimum level, keep agitation gentle.

Hello Ian,

Many thanks for the reply. I am washed my tank in warm water as suggested.
Just back from a longer trip and scanning the latest results.
Let's see whether the strange pattern is gone.

Cheers
