Help!! Goiter Bread

What did I do wrong?? French bread from ABED... Convection oven preheated to 500F, pizza stone, steam from cast iron pan below, lowered to 425F for baking...

Upper left has ears, yes. That was rabbit...

a lot to do with shaping......or you need to go to medical school learn to wield a scalpel :-)  Looks like you are slashing with a pair of scissors.

Guilty.

Maybe another 15-20 minutes before going into the oven would have helped.

The two loaves (short baguettes) afterward did not have this problem because they had extra proof time then. First time shaping a boule, or a rabbit for that matter. One of the baguettes turned out well--my best to date :)

Thanks, Paul!
