Our Garden Gate

Half-Plate Daguerreotype
Iodine: Magenta (60 seconds)
Bromine: 2 seconds
Second Iodine: 20 seconds
Exposure: 45 seconds @ f11 (leaves: 12.33ev)
Lighting: a sunny day in the northwest
Development: 4:15 @ 70˚C

Tried lamp black as a second polish after the rouge, and it left all kinds of weird spots. Very thin silver plating on the half-plates which I had made a few years back.
