    I drove out to Bryce Canyon Utah before sunrise and managed to hit 4 deer. 3 got knocked to the ground and all jumped up and ran off. I continued on and got some photos. Boy am I glad I did. This has been in a storage box since. This was almost 30 years ago.

    Nice picture.

    I was much more "into" photography in my Kodachrome years (40 years ago).

    My opinion was that it was the best film available. It sure worked for me. :)

    For me it was Tri-X.

    I loved Kodachrome 25, but was never quite so enthusiastic about Kodachrome 64. If you want to see Kodachrome at it's best check this out. 4×5 Kodachromes

    K25 still rules. Too bad the King is dead.

    I loved Kodachrome 64, and Kodachrome 64 Professional. I never liked the slow speed of Kodachrome 25--too much wind blurring on stuff with that slow of a speed.

    I really liked the color balance of K25; I always thought K64 was shifted a bit red.

    Tri-X was always good; a bit grainy, but it could be pushed nicely to ISO 1200. However my favorite B&W was Panatomic X @ ISO 32. Just stunning and extremely fine-grained.
