One lens for each "Orquidea"

When medium format isn't big enough: 4x5, 5x7, 9x12, 8x10 and even larger.

Orquidea #4

Linhof Technika III borrowed from a friend (better said I sealed 11 micro holes).
EV 6, Ilford Delta 100, 2 seconds @f/9-f/11, bellows length applied -1,25/-0,75 stops, the 4 photos were developed at the same time, #3 has a violet spot in the middle which shows whiter on the pictures, anyone knows why?
First time with HC-110 B 6 mins (30 secs inversion + 1 inversion/minutes, stop 1 minute, rapid fixer Ilford 4 mins, Ilford wash method, final one with humectant.

Thank you for watching and I hope you all participate :) comments are welcome as usual.
Alex.

First one is my favorite - enough background detail to keep it a little interesting, but not enough context to make it distracting. Yep - #1.

#1 Collinear
#2 Xenar
#3 Double Protarlinse
#4 Heli-Orthar

Through the ground glass #Protarlinse seemed the sharpest, I guess I should keep the composition as you PF and Scott choosed, a bit background but not distracting, thank you but and Scott for the tip, I really appreciate it, from now I will add it to things-to-do.
