Been shooting the hell outa the cheap Kodak Gold 200 I got (too many even in album to post now). Despite the fact that the film is one speed less than I prefer and not exactly top end for dynamic range and color I am having fun. Here are two that I REALLY want to improve on when I eventually get off my cheap ass and buy a film scanner. I told Target to turn off all the auto corrections because otherwise their scanner usually adds happy rainbow sprinkles to the dark spots in an attempt to "fix" what it thinks is an underexposed shot. Those two whole rolls in general looked kinda crappy compared to previous so I guess it turned other cleanup stuff off too. I took a bunch of pics at the same time as these with my Super Program thinking the meter was confused and it couldn't possibly be metering that low accurately, but since all my bracketing turned out too I guess it worked. It helps that film gets less sensitive after a point so its really hard to blow a long exposure. This was done on a tripod with the self timer thing and I haven't a clue how long the exposure was (I just started writing that crap down with the next roll) but it was likely somewhere between 8 and 15 seconds, I never had to go to bulb mode though, just used built in speeds.
Captured the actual lighting pretty accurately, a fog was rolling in fast right at sunset so I dashed for the tripod and caught the last of the colors before dark.

The guy who owns the camera shop that develops my C41 film recently gave me a Canon EOS A2e so of course I "needed" a lens for it
After doing some research on finding a decent, short/medium zoom, I settled on the EF 28-80 3.5-5.6 USM early Mk1 variant, found one on ebay, and purchased it

Here's a test shot from the aforementioned lens and camera, 28mm f/3.5, Fujicolor 200

Thanks guys! Builttospill, the portra 160 is starting to grow on me.
Nesster I really like the lines in the last one and the reflection off the water.
