I know how it is. I shot a roll of FP4 which was supposed to be somewhat contrast-y and most the roll came out like flat despite what were some otherwise good shots. I've just kicked myself for not having the color filters because I'm cheap and didn't get them.

Yeah, digital touch up is a must do. I can't imagine posting straight scans if only for dust. I normally just do a little level touch up on my other shots (my scanner gives a reddish cast to color film) in addition to some sharpening.
I have the filters but it just didn't hit me which filter would help in this scene. Color would be nice, but that was not what was in the 645 at the time. I'm starting to wonder whether in the age of scanning, color converted to B&W in Photoshop might not be as good or better an option than chromogenic B&W.

This is not my week for filters. I posted on another part of the forum about trying both yellow and red filters to darken a sky with Fuji Acros in Rodinal, and neither worked as expected. It is part of getting to know some new films.

@Guidoanselmi: I like pic #2, great shot.
@GeneV: your picture very sharp and good contract. What scanner you use?

How much brown was in that jogger scene? I suspect a lot. The hardest to make look good in BW. I don't think a filter would have helped much at all either.

Nah, this should be called Post You Pentax MF photos, but I can't change the title to the thread.

It is the desert, and it was winter. Those are two different ways to say brown.

Basically, one can either appreciate the flat scene for what it is or not. I like my 645, but one of the downsides to the Pentax MF cameras is that you are stuck with one film at a time. If it had been a 'blad, I probably would have changed out the film.

The wave hitting the rock and the deserted apartment building are wonderful.

Here are a few shots of the Seward, Alaska harbor and boats I've taken over the last 20 years with my Pentax 67. Love that camera!

Beautiful results - the 67 has a unique feel to it in the photographs it produces

A typical Alaska mountain scene on a clear winter day. Also taken with the Pentax 67.

A couple images from a different part of the country. Death Valley National Park (from Zabriskie Point) and Zion National Park. I do shoot color now and then.

Both taken with the P67...of course!

All of these were scanned years ago with my old Epson 2450. I really should re-scan them with the V750 now and see how much more can be pulled from those great 6x7 negs and transparencies.

Thanks Jussi. The P67 is a terrific camera with fine optics. I'm looking forward now to using the 645NII also. Just tried it out this morning with a few of my P67 lenses attached (the 45 and 105). It's going to be a great combination. I'm really impressed with the build quality of the 645NII.
