I wanted to try some images of the sea coming over the wall into the seawater pool.
Using my Thornton Pickard Imperial full plate (large format) camera from c1910;
I tried different exposure times from 1/75 at F32 to 20s at F16 with a 10 stop ND filter on.
I had a light leak coming through the shutter housing (having dropped it last time out it had worked loose). Nevertheless some pleasing images, with the leak cropped off the top of the images.
I wasn't sure that the shutter (100 years old) was operating at the indicated 1/75s. But the exposures I made trusting this value were all good.
