Heh.. Was shooting at Little India yesterday with a roll of Tmax.. 4 of my shots came up unexposed.. And those 4 shots happened to be the 4 and only shots I took of the Indian Temple there.. Strange huh.. Guess the Hindu Gods don't like me.. =(

No, no... I meant the 4 frames on the negative were totally unexposed!!! They're totally clear. ie. Pitch black if printed out..

BTW, I was using an SLR in case someone decides to say that I forgot to take the lens cap off..

There's nothing to post or see for that matter.. Those 4 frames on the negatives were totally unexposed.
It's not a case of absolute underexposure because part of the frame was pointing at a fairly cloudless sky on a hot sunny day.. If it were a great latitude of underexposure, at least part of the frame will turn out opaque on the negatives.

When you told me those 4 frames were missing, I thought it was just shutter jam or something.. But those were exactly the 4 and only shots of the temple.. Sheesh...

You also ar.. Workaholic la.. Stunned me with your PM that my negatives were developed.. Like 2 hours Express service developing + scanning siah..

Oh yah... A bit OT.. But your scanned shots have a warmish cast to them.. Maybe next time you should set it to save to greyscale jpeg/ tiff.

See attached picture:
