Thanks, Mike. Let's see if I can get it to work.



Alright, that wasn't so tough. Geez, what a grainy image though. Kodak Gold 200, as I recall. Scanned with my Epson 4990, I believe.

I like this one, and don't notice grain.

Beautiful shot!


Regarding the grain, my guess is that the sun in the middle fooled the meter to underexposed and scan/post had to brighten it?
Close inspection shows considerable jpeg artifacting so high compression exaggerated it.

Hey Les, I don't believe the meter was fooled. I discovered quite a few years ago that the best way to expose for a sunset is to meter the sky directly overhead. It unavoidably turns the sun white, but preserves the rest of the sunset colors. I'm sure that's what I did for that shot. As for the artifacting, that would have had to occur after I'd done whatever PP I did, since saving to jpg is the very last thing I do when I'm working on a photo. Perhaps I had compression set a bit too high.

Here is one similar to Cooltouch's photo above.

The photo was taken in 1994 at Mindle Beach, Darwin with the Ricoh KR-10 and the Pentax -M 1:2 50mm
I used Kodak C41 iso 400 and never used the lens wide open,
so this photo in the dusk would be at f/2.8 or so.

Scanned in 1995 by Kodak in Australia, the scan resolution was 3000 by 2000,
the .pcd is converted to 8 bit .tiff and re-saved by cinepaint.

Test roll from a lovely Christmas present my girlfriend got for me - a delightful AGFA Solinette II 35mm folder. These are on AGFA Vista 400, a little grainy but I really like the camera and the Apotar lens is nice and sharp.

Nice shots! I especially like the one with the lamp next to the window.

Thanks! That one was shot wide open at 1/50th so it's a) a lucky hit focus wise (no rangefinder on this one) and b) proof of how sharp the little lens is even at max aperture.

The USS Missouri, located at Battleship Row, Bremmerton Washington Naval Shipyard, June, 1995.
When I was a schoolchild in the mid-1960s we visited the Missouri at dock in Bremerton for a field trip. It was a big deal even then.
