First shots with Reala

It took me well over a month to shoot 1/2 my first ever roll of Reala. Since I needed my camera for a short assignment yesterday I decided to just wind it up, and get it developed while at work today.
I found the results very pleasing, and thought that I'd share 2 of the pic's.
Just a warning... They're the full sized scans, un-edited.

I usually get more pleasing results with Ektar, while shooting scenes like this cabin.

However, for things like these fake flowers it appears to give me a nicer colour.

All in all I was very happy with the results, and plan on shooting some more..... when I have more time.

Very, very nice. I like reala. It seems like most folks don't, but I liked my results which usually I don't.

Love the both shots and the snow has some nice detail. Well done.

Interesting comparison. I don't think Ektar would have come close to the colour rendition of the flowers. The cabin shot - probably - as I have found the browns to be quite good with Ektar - but the Reala did a great job here as well.

I'm just getting too much variation with Ektar, and have gone back to Velvia.

I've never had any variation with my results using Ektar, however I work in a pro lab. So I develop it myself, just like I did with the Reala.

There have been people saying that the variation comes from the processing, which I believe.
I never edit any of my prints, while shooting film. If it isn't the results I want I use it to learn for next time.

If I remember correctly I paid around $7.00 a roll. We don't sell it in my lab, so I had to give the competition my $
The pic's you see is actually from the last roll they had in stock
