Good results, very nice tone on #2 and 3 -- I have to say seeing the word Panatomic-X brought back good old times - back when I shot 1/2 frame exclusively and Pan-x was a mainstay. Oh, Plus-X too.
Thanks - I haven't even broken into the Panatomic-X. I have a bunch of "new" lenses and some new chemicals to try so I figure I will stick with the Plus-X and work out the variables for now. When I fell comfy with everything I will start shooting some of that.

I did shoot a few test shots with some of the Ortho film and am trying to squeeze some midtones out of it - not so much on the first try though Will hit that again this weekend

Panatomic-X was one of my favorite films.

Here are a few shot on the 28 year old Plus-X Pan (scanned into reasonable Jpegs with that new Canon scanner):

I love this shot!

Thanks, the botanical garden is one of my favorite spots at the park. That water is full of koi and turtles. The inside has some gorgeous plants and is just so peaceful. I like to find a little quiet corner and sit on the wall before it is too crowded - kick it like Buddha...

I want to go back down on another early Sunday morning to try and get some better results - it was pretty overcast that day. Later in the morning the place is full of pedestrians and street performers but I just haven't gotten into the street photography thing.

I need to be a little better prepared this time though. Drag along the whole SP camera bag, a tripod, plus ample and disgusting quantities of film.
