Any idea?

Nesster,
In the upper right hand corner of your picture there's a mark running vertically that doesn't match the rest of the sky. The reason I point this out is to ask a question: any idea what would cause it? Development issues? Slight light leak? (I've been getting the same issues with some of my 120 negs and it's slowly driving me crazy!)
And, as always, a wonderful picture...

Hi Rick

In Nesster's shot i think it its sky if you mean the top right where there is a darker area, looks like the difference between cloud and blue sky or grayer cloud bit
. A darker spot would not indicate a light leak on the positive, it would be a lighter streak (a darker spot on the neg)

...and I will get you samples of Ferrania in the mail today!
I am thinking of getting some Ferrania after shooting the two rolls you sent me (thanks again). Rumor has it that the house brand at Kroger's (Fred Meyer here in the Northwest) is actually Ferrania.

This thread keeps getting better and better. Here's a roll of TMax 100 I shot last month when the store didn't have anything else. Taken with a Leica R6.2/50mm Summicron.

Winter Boundary, somewhere behind my parents' house in Pennsylvania:

Rick, that mystifies me too - I've taken to inversion-agitation at least part of the time with 120, as the swizzle method gave me sky-stripes. This cloud thing mystifies me - I even dreamed about it - and I don't really know what went on in the tank this time. It is worse at one end of the roll. Maybe I did too much inversion with the plastic reel/tank.

I just recently discovered the joy of shooting film, so Imma get in on this action. Here's a few from a roll of expired Portra 160NC which I shot yesterday. Pentax MX with Zeiss 35/2:

Dang, you sure did, Todd! I like them all, though that last one is extremely interesting - the structure, texture, color, the reflection in the door, and that half-person at the very edge. Well selected!

160 film from both fuji and kodak is so excellent, whenever I see something great like this from Fuji I'm in the Fuji camp, and then I see something great from Kodak... and well, you know

Thanks, Jussi.

I shot this one straight on, and I was trying to hide my own reflection in the space between the doors, but you can see my elbow sticking out a bit. As I was shooting, I noticed the person walking behind me, and timed the shot to get her reflection in the door. I didn't even notice the other half-person until you pointed it out.

Trying out Javier's 99-cent film - turns out I've used it before and thought of it as "memories 200" film... Thanks Javier, and I will get you samples of Ferrania in the mail today!
About that, can someone tell me what this mystical "99 cent film" that javier always uses is? is it a specific film, or just a bunch of generic off-brand films?

You can't get hold of it anymore. He's bought up the entire stock, rebranded it as "JavierColor 400" and it now sells for $4.99 a roll

That mystical 99-cent film is AKA Memories, AKA DNP Centurion, AKA Konica Centurion, and probably sold with other names as well. The versions I've known come in a purple cartridge... using the term 'purple' somewhat loosely

In general, it is worth while to try out different store brands at various chain stores, there are some nice films out there.

Followed by a very nice Ektar 100 shot

Seriously though, I was very impressed with the Ferrania Solaris 400. The grain is no worse than Solaris 100 and the color rendering is just about perfect for the quirky architectural stuff that has characterized a lot of my most recent work. I think I like it better than Kodak Gold 200.
