I was gently scolded for posting tries #1 and 2 in the off topic forum, so I'm posting Tries #3 and 4 in this one. I personally don't think that these are good enough to be here (which is why I've been posting them in the off topic forum). Anyway. Here are Tries #3 and 4. Just for those not playing along, I recently acquired my brother-in-law's 35mm Nikon. I went out and shot a roll of multiyear-old color film, and the results were god-awful. Fortunately I have many friends here on the Forum, and they encouraged me to try again. So, I went out and shot a roll of B/W. These, too, were pretty dreadful, but a little better than the first attempt. Again, I received strong words of encouragement from my fellow Forumites, and I have done it again. This time, I used a tripod on some, and I took PlasticSpanner's advice to use that +/- exposure thingamabob. So, Try 3 is new color film: http://www.servatus.com/images/photoforum/try3 And Try 4 is more black and white film: http://www.servatus.com/images/photoforum/try4 Enjoy, and I look forward to your comments.
