Wetplate Collodion Portrait with Aero Ektar

This is the second 5x6 wetplate I shot January 5th 2013 with the Kodak Aero Ektar lens. The Scan is not very good since the plate was varnished before I had the chance to scan the image; and the scanner was pretty dusty... The collodion was fresh and fast; the Aero Ektar at F/2.5 (but probably 1-2 stop slower due to the browning of the glass), 8 second exposure in open shade and bouncing light with silver reflector.
