Thanks. That was pure luck. The wings of this stage are visible from the audience (it's an amphitheater in a park), and I was taking some pictures of the dancers milling around off-stage. It wasn't until I got home that I discovered what I had. I'm not sure if they were reacting to me or someone else.
And now for some film, taken earlier that day at the de Young Museum. Fuji Acros 100 pushed 2 stops, 1 hour stand development in 1:100 Rodinal, and shot with a Fuji GW690III. Scanned later with a Sony NEX-5N, Canon FD 50/3.5 macro in a 2x2 pano that gave me 42 megapixels. It's scaled down to 3 Mpixels for public consumption. I'm not sure that I'd do 2 stops again because the shadows are a bit blocked up and some of the highlights are blown, but I needed the speed that day.
