A Kirengeshoma Through A Pinhole

One of the favourite spots in my garden is a shady corner under the Rhododendron luteum
where I grow a large Kirengeshoma palmata.
Underneath is a fine (and quite rare) yellow green hosta called Northwest Textures. I have taken countless photographs of the spot in the past but today I used the pinhole lens (on the body cap) of my Mamiya RB-Pro SD. My exposure was 10 seconds using Fuji FP-3000B Instant Black and White Film. What you see here is a progression of he scans beginning with the actual negative. I had to dry it very well with a hair dryer to make sure it was not sticky so that I could firmly place it on my scanner bed. From that negative you can see the steps to the final results.
