Interested if any postprocessing on your photos. Amazing dynamic range. Either postprocessing, or I forgot what film is capable of.

Thanks- there was a series of them (1/3 keeper, landscape, B&W)- clearly they've disappeared deep into Dyxum history. A single theme may work better.

That is one serious camera polyglot! I'd love to see those negatives.
A pity your scanner is out of order. Do you use a flatbed? You must get some enormous files.

BTW: the challenge was closed May 31.

But we have a new, permanent film thread here.

Coming late to the party, but I have a couple more from May:

Ground Control:

4x5" Efke IR820, R72, Toyo 45A, 150 Nikkor-W, Xtol

The Twist:

4x5" Fomapan 100, CPL, Toyo 45A, 150 Nikkor-W, Xtol.

I have the latter also in Provia and expect it to look far better (it's bright yellow dawn light with spectacular colours in the clouds) but it will be a little while before I run my next E6 batch. And I've got some good Ektar shots in 4x5" but my 4x5 scanner is so bad that I can't show scans of those in good conscience with big curry-yellow streaks across blue skies.
C&C always welcome

There were some film threads going some time ago. Are you thinking of starting new ones or resurrecting these old ones?

Hi Chris. Another good set, but the colours are ehrm ..., a bit special.

This Film Challenge is now officially closed (but not everyone seems to be fully aware of this ) but we're going to give 'film' a proper and permanent place here. I'll let you know where you can post your shots soon!


The colours are indeed a little different

I look forward to the permanent film place and hope it happens soon!!

Best regards

Chris.

Anyway, really have enjoyed looking at everyone's images, shame there is not a permanent film gallery on Dyxum, perhaps we need more film challenges???

Kindest Regards,

Chris

last comments:

page 18
zk-cessnaguy - nice processing, 17 and title is in the running for Funniest
polyglot - nice lighting on 2, and 3
BobJ - 13 Scoundrel is fascinating, there almost is no sense of scale (tires are the only identifiable reference) so it could be miniature or could be huge.
The judges want to disqualify revdocjim for cheating: <These were taken early in the morning (sunrise is at 5:15AM so I set my alarm for 4:45) from my bedroom window.> - no fair having a great view of sunrise from your window!
Do you have color pictures of the temple?
page 19
Rovhazman - nice found pics! Like finding money in a pocket only better!
page 20
Stanbury - Vivitar and Boots(?) made nice colors, especially Old Headington Wall 2 - I'm assuming that's you mid-center?
page 21
3200 film from SChurchill!!
Wallendo <The roll I shot would be a lomographer's dream, but I was disappointed.> - some of us aim for that look :) Flower 2 and Overhead Lamp are perfect examples .....
funny how with just a few hundred pixels on a screen from a scan you can see resolution an detail from a large format, like polyglot's Hosier Lane
MiPr - another lesson from Film Challenge: 35-70/4 is a spectacular lens on anything.
page 22
mob81 makes a fan look good!
Tezzating - these shots inpired me to use my 28-135 for a roll
Effstop - color film is about color! Wow!
page 23
rozhazman - brilliant light in 10 (cemetery statue). 12 the contrail is striking; in the "I wish" department I wish the tree on the left were leafless not green; maybe it's better being green because it's color; maybe B&W? I really like it - it's not quite Abstract, but it is.
darosa - nice geometry in 4 feet deep living
page 24
revdocjim Wow.
Number6 - great Agfa color, desaturated but not lifeless
MiPr - if I were to pick a favorite stairs pic it would be #3. I like 11 galloping, and the presentation of 13 Resting is wonderful
page 25
BobJ - I *love* 9 Pin Board (23); 11 Atrium 26 geometry is great; 12 Polish Moto (30) - is that fog, or overexposure, or tweaked levels? - great soft top!
Wallendo - 4) Kayak in Tidal Creek and 5) Marsh are my thing - like them a lot.
marcin.warmuz - #34 Nephew is great
BobJ - that's a wonderfully curated series - it's a lovely walking tour, like going on a stroll with you. Don't know if you planned it, but I found the series presented in perfect order.
Timbits20 - thanks for the idea for superwide a lens for film! 7 could win the Funny Award: "Dad! - Never mind the lawn - Check out this scrape I got crashing my bike!"
mob81 - people pics are good
page 26
Stanbury - nice rowing pics
JJAlpha - love the framing on 3 To the Sky, and 6 the Tu-134 nose wheel!
Number6 with the late entry 003 (single red tuplip petal) may win Best Color Pic award, and 011 just misses being a *great* pic - maybe a little crop at the top?
Stanbury - I kinda like the 9th one for the streak through the middle.

Thanks everyone!
Obviously I *really* had fun, and was inspired. Thanks!
rozhazman - have fun with the bambino!

Last week I took three film bodies out, so there are duplicated shots.
Friday was sunny, so I finished these two rolls and dropped them off - hope you don't mind!

------------------------

Tmax 400
SRT 102
58/1.2 (frames 1-8) and 35-70/3.5 + Minolta UV filter (frames 9-36)
Question: the UV filter made the split prism dark and interference prism not dark - why would a UV filter do that? I can understand a polarizer....

3 bike break, 58/1.2-style

56720034

6 Government Property

56720030

9 Government Property ceremonial entrance

56720027

15 Veterans Memorial Park, Takoma Park, Maryland

56720019

16 bike break, 35-70/3.5@35mm@f8-style

56720018

18 cropped from 35mm

56720016

26 spiritof45.com

56720013

27 spriritof45.com wide

29 hat

56720008

35 Optimistically walking to work

56720002

------------------------

Kodak 200 "High Definition" (marketing hype "It's HD film!") expiry 02/2006 :


Maxxum 7 (the most user-friendly camera I've used other than SRT)
28-135 no filters

10 135mm purple

56710010

16 backlit rose macro engaged

56710016

17 "My eyes are on you big sister"

56710017
5400 flash off cam

27 Community Garden watering hour, Washington DC

56710027

28 another attempt at this shot

56710028

30 work penthouse equipment room

56710030
5400 flash off cam; another location I've attempted many times but never found the money shot; shot wide then cropped

34 Spiritof45.com

56710034
color to match B&W

35 macro flare buddies!

56710035
macro engaged; not a good shot but I like the line of flare blobs

Among the many little details I need to learn: paper.
I think I like Kodak paper and do not like Fuji paper; CVS pharmacy One Hour uses Kodak, and I like those prints better than the camera shop Penn Camera (now Calumet Camera) which uses Fuji. These last 3 rolls were printed on Fuji.
Also, the B&W is printed on the same paper; are you supposed to print on B&W specific paper?
For these pics I got the cd from Penn Camera, and it was "high resolution" - definitely better quality than CVS, fewer digital artifacts, but still not artifact-free, at least not what I want. So I still need to learn to scan my own negs.
I ended up just taking pictures instead of learning home developing and scanning - cheers to everyone who did it themselves!

Here's my FP4+ film, shot in April/May in a Minolta Maxxum 9000AF mostly with a 28-300 zoom. I had a huge problems getting this film on to a metal spiral for develiopment and so picture quality may be compromised somewhat!

























The pictures were taken at the Harcourt Arboretum in Oxfordshire, with the exception of the last one, of course.

Picked up the last roll of Lomo prints (still 2 other rolls being developed from last Friday), first dozen shots from a month ago.
Lomo 100 film, stick with what worked, 5000 body + MD>A glassed adapter.
Most with 50/1.7 @ 1.7 (unless noted).

I really like this look; it’s definitely not for everyday use, but when it works I really like it. Unfortunately I did not use it for what may be the best use, portraits, only the first pic here.

1 At the gate to Jazz Fest, New Orleans

55000001
f2.8?

4 Ring Dance, Jazz Fest, by Yellow Bird Indian Dancers

55000004
f5.6?

5 Ring Dance spectators

55000005cr16x9
f5.6? crop to 16x9

7 Pelican before the Pier, St Petersburg (Florida, USA)

55000007rot
The Pier is now closed, to be demolished.

9 Sunrise, St Petersburg

55000009rot

12 Government Property

55000012
35-70/3.5 @ 70mm?
I still don’t have a good version of this shot; the cemetery is small, so it’s hard to get a compression shot with endless headstones in the background.

22 Sligo Creek, calm

55000022cr4x5
35-70/3.5 cropped to 4x5

32 bike break

55000032
35-70/3.5 @ f8?

33 wilting azaleas

55000033

35 backlit rose

55000035cr1x1
