Javier, I've noted in many of your film shots there's a halo effect - both close in and then a more diffuse one - in the above silouhette shots for example, look at the edge of the pilings on the left, or the jumper's arm for that matter. Is this Target doing it?
Nesster, funny you should mention that. I was wondering the very same thing. Halos really bug me and am always on the look out for them. I will scan those images myself tomorrow and see what I get. Thanks for backing up my suspicions.

I normally do not do any PP other than cropping or resizing, maybe levels but thats it. I just don't have an eye for it.

I took my pops Kodak Retina IIa out for the first time today. Shot a roll of Kodak Gold 200 through it, well, ALMOST a roll, haha, I didn't set the film counter correctly, so only managed 19 shots ( once the counter reaches one, you can no longer advance the film on this camera, it counts backwards. )
Nothing fancy here, just some shots in the neighborhood.

First, here is a shot of the camera itself, it was made between 1951-54 in Germany. Quite a well built piece of equipment !



And the images from it !

The Retina IIa is one of my favorites - so beautifully designed, deco-ish, and so quick and easy to use. I have a wrist strap on mine; the opened bellows makes for a perfect finger hold when carrying it ready to shoot. And that lens is excellent! Funny about the counter...

Here's something from mine.

My First Posted Film Scan-My Horse

I shot up a roll of BW400CN and got it back from WalMart...very unhappy with WalMart's scans, so I scanned them myself and was much happier with the results. Here's one of my favorite horse, whom we call "The General" taken with a Pentax Super Program, a Vivitar 75-205 Close-focusing Zoom, exposure was auto.

Some of my first film exposures after using a d40 for a year or so. Shot with a k1000 on Kodak BW400CN.

Here are some captive wildlife shots that were taken with the Pentax M 150mm f/3.5 hand held and Kodak UltraMax 400.
Not the greatest framing as there were lots of people around.

Thanks much Javier, I too will stick with the Kodak UMax 400, probably the 800 once I try it.
