Solisti - 1 & 3 are my favorites - subtle and effective. Interesting process you use also.
TWoK - wow you get some good film saturation and light play. What film please?

In keeping with the subversive non-pentax tradition of this thread, here's another pic from the test roll through my 1937 Certo Super Sport Dolly with S-K Xenar 75mm f/2.8 lens and coupled rangefinder. The rangefinder isn't calibrated, the bellows still have a light leak somewhere, and the shutter will need a CLA... but I can estimate distance fairly well, and set exposure without any newfangled meters

1/200 sec @ around f/4 - exposure is for the statue in the shadows, not the background in the sun. The scanner auto exposure wants the background regular and the statue under exposed...

Finally got these scanned from over a month ago (too busy with business travel =/). These are from the first two rolls of film I've shot switching over from digital. I think I'm hooked.

These were all taken with the K1000 and the M 50mm 1.7 (it's hard to believe my favorite lens was only $40). The first and third are Neopan 400 and the middle is HP5

Nice shot. I do my best to shoot in warm light with high contrast. These are all shots from the cheapest film on earth, Fuji 100. No processing other than some sharpening and a resize in CS2. These are lab scans.

Pentax ME-F, Tokina 17mm F/3.5 and Ilford xp-2...This has become my favorite combo....I am finding it hard to leave it at home in place of another system....





My twins and my buddy Rick..The cam was on the table and I was moving to lock the shutter release button when it accidentally went off....Turns out I like the pic.

I think if you convert them to gray scale, these images would pop more...

Here is some Provia 100F. Shot with a Canon Elan II using my 70-200mm f2.8. This is during my trip to San Francisco in May, I was at the North-East corner of Golden Gate Park.

I have so much stuff to develop still, but here are a few -

This is some 40+ year old 35mm B&W movie film I shot a couple rolls of while doing some light scrambling on a small fall, probably belongs in the over the top grain thread.



This was shot with the 55mm Super Tak - Quietly...



Some bird action -







And this one was a bird that was dive bombing me at the Aviary and dropping sticks on my head - he did not like the sounds of the old camera

Great stuff Frank. I have also missed seeing your images...I am surprised at the good result you got from the AGFA 400. I have had no luck with it.

Thanks Javier. Glad you like them Actually I didn't buy the AGFA400 film, got it for free from a camera purchase. After the test run, I think I still like the Kodak Gold 100 better.

Haven't shot much film lately actually, put too much time on the new K-7 camera

Got the ME SE camera on Friday, did 2 quick test run on Saturday. Here are some more from the test run.
