    Shot this a couple hours after the waterfall pic.

    Looks a bit different than the green half of the state.

    By the way- this is the roll of Velvia (ASA 50) that I exposed at ASA 400 by oopsident.

    Hard to believe this was 3 stops underexposed and push processed 3 stops to compensate. The slide looks much better than this digital dupe does.

    I'll have a couple more from the same lookout Thursday after I get home from work.

    That's really nice, photobug. Slides always look better than anything. It's so disheartening to get a print made of your gorgeous slide and it just never compares. I have a beautiful slide of Crown Point on the Columbia Gorge that has a lot of those nice blues and purples like yours does. I don't think I even tried to get a print, knowing it wouldn't satisfy me.

    ...nice recovery of your film in the development, photobug

    I agree with oriecat - prints from slides are often a disappointment

    However, that is often due to the process used in modern labs: the transparency is scanned to a digital file before printing (yuk!)

    In such cases one would be better off shooting colour negative because of the increased exposure latitude available

    The best transparencies-to-print results are achieved with the "Ilfachrome" (spelling?) process

    Make enquiries: slightly more expensive but there may still be a lab in your area which will do this

    Cheers!

    :)

    Very nice Jim :thumbsup:

    Good thing you realized you had shot at ASA 400.


    Regarding prints from slides, I've only seen a print from digital which doesn't compare. There are 2 other ways of doing it that work well. Either make an internegative and some other process that prints it directly from the slide. Don't know what its called and most labs don't do it.

    That's just a dup using the slide duplicator for the Nikon 4500. It's really pretty crappy, which is why the pic is so small.

    Prints from slides can be accomplished by making an internegative and printing that (bleech results mostly), or making a Cibachrome or Ilfachrome and printing that (not exactly sure what that process is, but it's supposed to be much better than the interneg), or scan it with a film scanner and create a digital print.

    Digital printing is making leaps and bounds of late. The lady that developed this for me showed me a 11x22 digital print of her cat's face that I could count individual hairs on. It was amazing! We'll be talking when she gets set up next fall. :)

    Was it done using a drum scanner?

    This place has 3 different types of scans. The price for a 35mm drum scan is $30 :shock:... each slide.

    VDC- nope, shot the slide with the Coolpix & slide duplicater. Here's a bigger version requested on another forum:

    mrsid- Mostly because it would be different, and I like to be different! :lol:
