Too many great and interesting photos to comment on here!
But finally I have something I can post from my recent trip. Have many rolls to develop and scan, haven't even started on B&W yet...

Lake Matheson, New Zealand
Pentax 67, 6x7 55/4, Provia 100F - cropped



EDIT: I actually have an almost identical shot taken with Ektar 100, I'll finish it and post here for comparison sometime soon.

For me the ideal would be something in-between the two
I think that the Provia is not doing so good in the darker tones but the water looks postcard perfect, the Ektar is showing more details in the trees and the mountains but the water is not as appealing as Provia.

Cheers,

Luc that does not know anything about color.

You know what Luc, I reckon you are 100% correct (what was that about not knowing color? :P)
I have been thinking about it since I posted the two images but couldn't quite put my finger on it.
I sort of let the color stay how it came out of the scanner- as it appeared to be close to what I expected of the films. But perhaps I will alter the images slightly (perhaps warming the provia one) and see if I can find the middle ground.
thanks for your comment!

And thank you Fabian also

That's an interesting comparison. It becomes confusing which I'd prefer.

Nice. I particularly like #3. It has some interesting qualities to it.

Nice shots. My next-to-get lens is a 120mm Makro for my Hassy.

I'm surprised you didn't end up with your face planted in the gravel with a SWAT team on top of you with their knees pressed in your back for shooting that train. Really, they are anal about that around here even if you are on public property.

I was keeping a sharp eye out for the railroad cops, for sure!

This train was parked in front of the Alaska Railroad station here in Anchorage and was preparing for a tourist run north to Denali National Park and Fairbanks. There were alot of people milling around the train, preparing to load.....so maybe I got lucky for that reason.....attention was focused elsewhere.

I have the 120 Makro for my Hasselbald and the Hasselblad=>P645 adapter. Maybe I should do a little "shootout" between these two lenses. Have to say, I've been very impressed with the Pentax lens. Mine is the A series.

Thanks Tuco.
It does not really show on the small jpg but on the print, the light playing on the tree trunks and bushes makes a path going deep into the woods in the middle in the picture so that you eyes go there and stay there going back and forth from front to back.
That is exactly how I had seen the scene BUT that is the first time it translate clearly in one of my shots.

Cheers,


Luc

If the Provia 100 was digital I'd say the blues had been hyped beyond belief. Much prefer the Ektar.

lbenac: That third image of Lighthouse Park is just perfect.

And thanks to everyone else for the continuing excellence of this thread.
