Thanks!

Very cool framing for the tunnel.
Have you tried removing the top let corner? I cannot decide if it breaks the pattern or remove a distraction.

Cheers,

Luc
Thanks! Haven't tried cloning out the top left but I will.

Wow - I have to agree with Javier about Pepijn's tunnel picture. EXCELLENT!

Thank you!

It looked like Glasgow was hit quite hard by the crisis, shops and office buildings to let everywhere.
There was not exactly an atmosphere of gloom but the city felt like it had lost its energy. I think this picture shows some of that feeling. This was shot just after the election which was lost by by Labour and ended in a new Tory/Liberal coalition government, the first coalition goverment in the UK in some 65 years.
Coincidentally the Tories had a horrible result in Scotland, only winning one parliament seat there.

... I have to mix up some more developer to keep up with all the excellent B&W work here.

Meanwhile I scored a bunch of Ferrania film - this is the ASA 400 version, in a Chinon Pocket Dual AF-P panoramic P&S

Quite an interesting shot there Jussi, I like it.
easytiger - those B&Ws (especially #1) look fantastic. Digital's got nothing...
And I like Agnostic's photo too, very nice. I need to try some of that Rollei film sometime.

Here are some shots of my 2 old cars. First in BW400CN with Super Program and M50 f/1.4, and second same camera/lens with ektar 100:

Love both of these. The tones in that first one are sooo smooth.

Nice shot with strong blacks. Is that outside Central Station?

Actually I'm not that happy with the Retro 400S and 80S, both too grainy, too contrasty for easy scanning and I don't particularly like the tonal range, it's hard work digging out some detail from the shadow areas..

Yep outside Central Station.
I didn't find it that grim, just a bit beat.
Nice place for street shooting. Pity I didn't have much time.

Gosh, I miss Glasgow. I had some really good times there. Glasgow is actually a pretty vibrant place, but you see that in the art and music scene and nightlife, not too much on drizzly afternoons

Jussi, this shot is a trip. It reminds me of the ending in The Graduate...

Jason, WTF...the steering wheel's on the wrong side of the car. You must have scanned the negative the wrong way round. All kidding aside, seriously loving the Ektar shot.

Best,

Fair enough. Sitting here, I have no idea how much work you might have done with the scan before uploading to the web, as I'm not at the stage where I scan my own negatives yet. I do like your work though.

And here's an old Datsun:

@goddo31 - Nice colours and depth on the Datsun. One of these days I need to find some Ektar to try, the local dealer doesn't carry it.

Thanks Steinback. I quite like Ektar 100, so I'd recommend it. I'm not sure whether it can be found locally here either (AUS), at this stage I have only ever bought it when purchasing something else from Adorama. But now I'm out...

Here's a simple Ektar 100 shot from the beach:

There's quite a big difference, Rollei Retro 100 and Neopan 400 generally look great straight from the scanner without any adjustments and whatever I develop them in. Rollei Retro 80S, 400S, and Efke 25 are more difficult in my experience.

+1

I would love to try some Ektar as well, pity it's hard to get and expensive.

That's some pretty bad blue shift, but the result is nice.
