    I scanned these and the scanner had so much dust and stuff on it what should I use to clean it without scratching the glass? But yeah these are kind of old maybe a year old or so, tell me what you think. I can't wait to get my 35mm negative scanner;)

    Now, what's new then??? ;)

    But hey, I wipe my scanner glass with a normal microfibre cloth for glass (damp), nothing else. But in the course of time, dust will also have found its way inside, and then no wiping can help :(.

    I like the photo of the girl. Nice expression!!! :D Why is she ON THE ROOF?

    35 mm scanners are the best! I don't know how I ever survived without one. What kind are you getting?

    As for your photos, the first is alright and I like the contrast between the leaves ad the sky.
    The detail in the second is gorgeous, but the building in the upper right corner is a bit distracting and my eye isn't quite sure what to look at.
    The third is ADORABLE! Great job.
    The exposure looks varied in the third.
