Sleepy Muse

Quarter-Plate Daguerreotype
Iodine: yellow with red-edges
Bromine: red with slight yellow interior
Exposure: 30 seconds @ f2.8 (skin: 12ev)
Lighting: florescent (8x55w)
Development: 2:50 @ 176˚F

Wow, pretty ugly tones! The finger smudges don't help either. I have to work on improving the effect of the florescent lights. Over all the image is better, but perhaps still a bit over developed.
