Morgan? Nice shot. I love the liquid reflections. Tri-X is good!

Yup Morgan, I also shot one in the same Agfa Precisa roll but it appears this film doesn't tolerate overexposure well:





Definitely not the best shots of that series.

Thank you guys, I think the Precisa is a very good E6 film, I don't have much experience with other slide films tough because they are very expensive, however as you can see on the top it deals poorly with overexposure.

The monument is in Stratford upon Avon and it's dedicated to Shakespeare, or better Shakespeare is in the centre and there are four statues dedicated to his famous character, I don't remember who is the kid King, but here you have Falstaff:



And everybody knows who's this guy:



For all these pics I used the SMC tak 50mm f1.4 wide open with good results.

I also used the Praktica Jenaflex with this Agfa slide film and I obtained my favourite pics, I don't know if it was because of the best lightning or if the CZJ lenses work better with E6, fact is I obtained very beautiful skies:

I think you may still have some latitude there - if this was scanned by third parties, they most likely used the same setting for all images. One day you might want to revisit these with your own scanner. Back in 2008 I was using local Jessops to scan my negatives. Some came out weirdly cropped in places where I remember I took care not to crop the subject. Others were slightly off with exposure or had some highlights blown. All this was down to their automated scanning process ! Once I acquired my own scanner and re-scanned these , it turned that the shots were perfectly framed or highlights easily recoverable with small compensation during scanning!

Shot a roll of Kodak Gold 200 to test out my Pentax KX (which works great).

Nice contrast, but I see much of the highlights aren't there. Is it the scanning or the film which has lower dynamic range than Trix or Tmax?
It was a special film used for silhouette mattes and traveling mattes. So from what I gathered it was made for Sharpness and high contrast. dynamic range didn't need to be as good so it does suffer a bit due to the design of the film.

I'm pretty certain that Agfa Precisa is repackaged Fuji Provia.
I don't think any E6 films tolerate overexposure well.

I agree, as does the DX de-coder (Dexter)

Fantastic stuff:
