    Cheers Peter - much appreciated words.

    Well, I'm on a roll so here's another one with the hassy/ 80mm and HP5. Hope you are not getting bored with the subject. I'm off to paris tomorrow for some street shooting, bag is loaded with Tri-X and I'm excited as a kid:-)

    I don't have the fabulous images that you guys have but I do have an Epson V700 as Emma does. I'm impressed with this scanner and especially the Epson bundled software. I've treated myself to the BetterScan MF holders which have certainly increased sharpness.

    Mamiya RZ and Velvia

    Both slides are some 20 years old and were in a pretty dismal state.

    p.s. this is also the first time I uploaded images so I hope they come through OK

    Very impressive results.

    I own and use a bunch of different scanners - for anyone contemplating a consumer flatbed, I'd highly recommend Doug Fisher's Betterscanning holders - they really are extremely worthwhile in getting the best possible from your scanner. They are without question the best money I have spent on scanners. They won't turn your V750 into a drum scanner, but they will help you to realize the scanner's full potential.

    Some Lubitel fun again. As you can see there are some light leaks but I still quite like it.

    I like this a lot too. I've always wondered what the crucial ingredient is in getting the 19th century look? Choice of developer, or is it something you achieve later in computer PP?

    Oxide blu,Sizifo,Helen,thanks,glad you liked it,no secret here Im afraid,the view was just as you see it.The lighting made you stop in your tracks and the chimneys pumping out,presumably,steam as this was taken in London reminds

    Thanks Cindy,I remember walking by a few weeks later and there were about a dozen herons around the boat but the lighting wasnt there,a very different photo,no camera though.Its surprising in a photo of this type where its all about shapes and tones how distracting even the smallest highlights can be.The two bright highlights on the boat if removed change the image slightly.........all the best,Neil.

    William, that is a terrific photo, and I wouldn't have changed a thing.

    This is just a photo of my dad and wife Virginia yesterday. My dad healthy until this year, has had some recent problems. I like the way this one turned out despite the tree growing out of Gini's head. Ikon ZM, CV 35/1.4 MC, BW400CN, sharpened automatically too much during Flickr resizing.

    Nice image. I love the way the DoF isolates your subjects. And, I have a growing appreciation of that CN400.

    Your Dad's a handsome guy. Is that his wife, or yours?

    Thank you Lloyd! This was my first roll of CN400, and I think I prefer it to Ilford XP2, the other C41 B&W film I've been shooting.

    I prefer the XP2 as well, but the CN is, as I said, growing on me. (BTW, you have some truly wonderful images on your website. Great stuff!)

    Thanks Lloyd, very kind of you to say that about my website photos!

    These analog forum threads are IMO amongst the very best threads here; I'm feeling inspired to try shooting some silver, but the C41 is just so convenient.

    I love that I live in a country where you can get out on the national highway, pull over, take a photo like this in one direction:



    Then turn around, and take this:



    All the while, being fairly confident that another car is not going to come along and run you over.
    Anyway, here are two more from the same place:

    And I don't think I ever posted these, though I could be wrong. They were from a month or two ago...Mamiya 7 with a 150mm and 43mm lens:

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    No pictures to share yet (I just got the first rolls back from the local custom lab last weekend and I haven't had time to scan any yet)....but yes, I am having FUN shooting film with the Canon EOS 1V I purchased from Fotografz. That is one sweet camera. Part of me says it makes no sense to shoot 35mm film anymore...but what the heck, this camera is really a joy to use. Mostly shooting with my 24-70mm f2.8L lens thus far.

    Hope to get some film scanned and posted here soon.

    Alaska

    P.S. I was out shooting with the EOS 1V today during my lunch hour when we had an earthquake here in Anchorage. I wobbled a bit, recovered my footing and kept right on shooting! Too bad that 24-70 f2.8L isn't image stabilized!

    Another fantastic photograph, William. Great use of the perspective and shadows.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    William -- I don't know what to say to that one, but man, is it a charged image! It reminds me of some of Eikoh Hosoe's photographs in the Man and Woman series, more for atmosphere and implication than photographic content, but very interesting nonetheless.

    Nice and moody. Like the process too. Did you do all the developing and process yourself? Did you shoot it at 320 and process at 400? I have some TriX coming soon and some Rodinal as well!

    And the one below--I have to ask. Is that from a CD or did you scan that one? The reason I ask is because so far the scans I've done from C41 B+W always have a tint of purple or green in them. If someplace like Walgreens is returning your negs with a CD I might have to try that. I have some C41 B+W in my F3HP, but haven't gotten around to shooting it yet.

    Good stuff Lloyd, especially that first one

    Thank you!

    I generally process the silver film myself, but the truth here is that I was just testing my old F3 to make sure everything was working, as I was loaning it to a relative. This roll was processed at a pro lab near where I work. I had them process it for ISO 400, even though I shot it at 320. D76, I think.

    As for the CN400, this is the scan from the CD I got at Costco. I typically get the CD so I can take a quick look and decide what I want to scan myself. They do a pretty good job, so I just used their scan here, although I'm planning to scan this one later, so I can make a print. I've never had the issue with the color tint you describe. Strange.

    Re: More and more film fun with something other than a Leica M

    Lloyd, is this the raw scan, or did you process it? Because while I quite like the photo (the expression, composition and so on), there is something going on with the processing that looks a bit unnatural to me. Did you do a lot of retouching? Because it looks kind of like he is wearing eyeshadow right now. I think the reason it looks that way is a mix of aggressive sharpening, curves, and presumably a lightening of the under-eye area (the bags...trust me, I have these like Benecio Del Toro, so I know the issue). But now, the area immediately about the eye is so dark, while the undereye is light, and I think this is giving a sort of make-up like effect. This is exacerbated by the sharpening, which makes the lashes look like they have mascara. Now please please please don't take this the wrong way -- I don't think there is anything feminine about the kid or anything like that, it just seems to me to be a bit overzealously processed.

    Anyway, that's just the impression I got -- it could just be a jpeg compression issue or something like that. Just giving another point of view...

    That is the raw scan. All I did was resize and sharpen for the web. I have noticed that my web sharpening action is a bit much for this forum at times. I think the forum adds it's own sharpening, so the combination is excessive. I try to remember to tone it down, but sometimes forget when I'm posting in more that one location.

    BTW, no makeup for sure. This is my son, and he has a very olive complexion, which sometimes looks almost green on film. May be an effect of the Tri-X. I'd not noticed this before.
