the film version for sure. better tonality seems sharper as well (that's the contrast i'm sure.

I was going to ask where this was since you live locally and i don't recognize the building (or the other one for that matter)

I may be local but the building is not. It is insude the older part of Chelsea Market in New York (9th avenue and 16th street) for those wanting to visit.

Shots are about 2-3 weeks apart, on 2 separate visits, one using my K7 the other using my PZ-1 and 3200ISO Illford Delta film. I like the tonality of the high contrast film shot, the digital conversion is from a JPEG cropped down to get the same approximate field of view. this may account for some of the sharpness, but the impression I have is that while film grain (sometimes equated to noise on digital) is much worse, there is an apparent sharpness with the film that digital loses, although I am sure this is not quite fair. Just a quick play with curves on the greyscale image can make it appear to have more depth like the film shot.

Really like that shot. You also reminded me that I've got 20 rolls of Rollei Retro 100 in my freezer
Thank you ! I made the mistake to buy only 20 rolls of 135 and 20 rolls of 120...

I have looked at this shot a few times, only just noticed the girl walking towards the bike! Nice shot, good composition!

Love those shots, easytiger!

Here are a few snaps of the old University of Iowa Art Building, damaged in the 2008 floods and sitting idle since then. MX and Ektar 100. Zeiss 35 f/2.
Todd, you seem to be taking to film like a fish to water...
Good stuff with the Ektar.

The last roll of film came back from Ilford today. For some reason it took the Post Office 10 days to deliver the film to Ilford so I was getting a bit concerned! All images were shot with my LX and Rollei Retro 80S film, a variety of primes (one of K24/2.8, M28/3.5, K35/3.5, K50/1.2 or M100/2.8 ).

1. A long trip to work.


2. Fierce?


3. Seagull.


4. Alleyway


5. Misty morning


More images (digital, colour film and BW film, Pentax and Lubitel) are in my Venice "collection" on Flickr: Collection: Venice

Best wishes, Kris.

Rollei Retro 80S film
I have one roll of RR 80s left and am seriously thinking of ordering a bulk roll (or two) from Maco along with a brick of 120. It is sort of a specialty emulsion, but I really like how it works for landscape and with the limited blue sensitivity, it is nice for some types of portraiture as well.

This is the first roll I have shot and I am pleased with it, especially how it rendered the somewhat unexciting skies. It does appear quite grainy for an ISO 80 emulsion, however. I would be reticent to use it where I want fine grain and smooth tonal textures. I'd probably go back to Ilford Delta 100 in those circumstances.
