    Try a Sepia filter. See if you like it. I think it would work better on these.

    They both appear rather soft.

    Your wife is beautiful.
    What kind of film were you using?

    Very nice :) Were your negatives thin? They look a bit flat to me, but that could be from the scanning.

    Was that black strip from when you scanned it or is it on your actual image?

    I believe it was Ilford Delta 100, but this was taken a while ago when I first got my medium format camera and began figuring it out.

    As far as the black line, I'm not sure what that was. I had the photoshop scan in the negatives, so I will have to look at the actual negative to see.

    And thanks for the comments!

    I'd say the black border is from your film. there is nothing on the side, the light goes through, hence it becomes black...
    Maybe you can manage the contrasts a bit? this is a bit washed-out, don't you think?

    Someone want to give it a contrast boost? I don't have photoshop on this computer since my computer crashed.

    I was about to say that contrast wasn't really there until I saw the last pic you posted with the corrected contrast. Nicely done! Very nice photo. :)
