I am still amazed this experiment turned out so good. A simple pinhole camera made out of a tin can, an exposure time of three months, resulting in an actual, recognizable picture! As @hugolena pointed out, I forgot to invert my solargraphs. So here is the positive version. I lost the pretty pink colors, but I gained a lot of detail in the image. Now I can actually recognize the roofs of my neighbors' sheds (and see that I needed to invert the picture from left to right as well...).
