Very nice Steve, I bet that you have plenty of detail on that large negative.
Yes, there is lots of detail and great tones. The small "Web" version does not do justice. I must qualify my post (and may edit it for accuracy) by saying that the shot was done with 120 roll film and not with 4x5 sheet film. Still though, the difference is pretty incredible.


Steve


(Really should bite the bullet for some 4x5 Ektar or Portra 160...but $2.70-$3.00 per sheet + $2.15 per sheet for processing...OUCH!)

Nah, not when applied to film

I do agree with what you said with respect to education but religion is not quite the same as education. Of course its possible to maintain what some might call "Christian values" with regards to how we treat our fellow man without having to believe there is a deity. And yes it is so off topic so I won't post again on the subject

Its all Javier's fault anyway

Bruspeed, wonderful B&W. Cute baby.

Colton, those are great shots, dust notwithstanding. I really like the last one.

Fearview, those are beautiful scenes. The colors are amazing.

Javier, I love that guy's expression and pose - very charismatic. Sorry to hear about your camera though.

Vendee, the Venice shots are great. And that's so cool about the Pope!

Wuzet, nice photo and very interesting subject. What is the story behind the statue (and the soup)?

Steve, the tulips are lovely. Gorgeous light in that one.

Here are a couple from a recent roll of Kodak UltraMax 400, all Spotmatic II, 55/1.8:


Flowers at the local arbortetum.



(Our town has the Apple Blossom festival every year, where everyone decorates & wears pink and green. This is a storefront downtown.)

Colton, nice car. I have had the same wish more than once when shooting through a fence!
And nice work with the Fujicolor earlier. I think it would be worth your while to return to those shots when you are in the mood for dust cleaning. And yeah I know what it's like sometimes. Maybe the film became statically charged for some reason?
Thanks Jason. I will probably end up doing dust removal on those shots one of these days.

@Steve, superb shot off the tulip!!

@k.c.virginia, thanks for the comments I love the colors in your last 2. I can't ever seem to get colors like that with Fujicolor 200.

@Jussi, great shot from the FE.


Here's a few more from my FE,


Nikon FE, Nikkor-S 35/2.8, Fuji Provia 100

I really got to eat my own words.
When I switched from film to digital, the ease of viewing and PP made me say " I won't go back"

Fast forward 5yrs later and it seems I've caught the film bug.

Got myself a Yashica Mat and this rolled on to a Flexaret and Mamiya RB67.
From a recent roll on the RB67.
Fixed the light leak on it and I'm really pleased with the results.

Both using Mamiya 90/3.5 Kodak Porta 160

Colton, those are really nice colors on the first one. And I like the composition of the second one. This was the first time I used the Ultra Max 400 and I thought the colors were pretty true. Even skin color on some of the portraits wasn't bad.

pinholecam, those are lovely portraits.

Javier, nice work as usual. I like the Venice shots especially.

I'm actually still quite awestruck how the film looks more 'organic'
