Thanks, that Vivitar is rather unusual isn't it? Is 19/3.8 a zoom setting?Anyway, an inviting picture.

Thanks Arnold. The Vivitar 19 is a prime: Vivitar (Cosina) 19mm f/3.8 Lens Reviews - Vivitar Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database It's a decent lens, but as the first reviewer states, it does not like the sun anywhere in the frame! I typically use it on overcast/darker days, and dial in about -1.00 ev. This evening I took this shot was kind of an exception, but I was still careful to keep the camera pointed downward as much as possible!

This park is still flooded, although the water levels have lowered. Evidence of high water can be seen on the roof of the picnic area. Photo was taken from a small observation tower. M35-70/2.8-3.5 (xposted)

Aah. . . Kodachrome. If it still existed today I'd still be using it, and you can keep your newfangled K-1. Nothing will ever beat the glory of a Kodachrome slide on the lightbox through a loupe, or projected six feet wide. Here's some favourites from the eighties.

A certain significant bunch of rocks.


Straight into the light trying to work out the right exposure with a K1000's meter, using a film with zero room for error.



Manhattan in 1989 from a departure lounge at JFK. This one breaks my heart in so many ways (I grew up on Long Island).

Very nice Dave, You know there is a special place for these beautiful old exposures.

Thanks Arnold. I love the "Old photos from before 1990" thread and I'm sure I've already posted those shots there a while ago. I'm still in the process of scanning my thousands of slides and negatives, so I'll add more to the old photos thread as any decent ones turn up. It's great to have a thread that proves that we were actually able to get excellent results with our fully manual cameras and lenses back in the pre-digital days.

Is there a Kodachrome plug-in for PS or LR?

There's DxO Filmpack and Alien Skin Exposure, and there may be others that I haven't heard of. I haven't got DxO, but I have got Alien Skin although I've hardly ever used it. I've just tried out a quick comparison with a random shot from the K-S1 plus Super Takumar 20mm.

Straight raw to jpeg conversion:


With Alien Skin Exposure Kodachrome 64 simulation (no added grain):


I'm not sure that it's a particularly convincing simulation of what that scene would actually look like shot with Kodachrome, but I do think that it's a big improvement on the straight raw to jpeg. Now that I've bothered to try it out, I think I'll be using Alien Skin a lot more often with shots from the K-S1.
