My girlfriend invited me out for a hike, decided sure why not, and figured i may as well drag this camera along as well. Heh, about this picture, originally i was standing on the shore, and there was a dead tree sticking up, so i decide to hop across a few rocks to get to this big boulder in the middle of the stream, so i can get a clear shot. I hop across, hit the fist rock, and slip right in. Water wasn't deep, and i was wearing my waterproof hiking boots, so i was able to get to the big boulder in 2 steps. I get over there, and what is there? That stupid log in the bottom left hand side. I hate dead trees. Now this root picture, i basically took it walking along the path, and really wondered how it would turn out. It's somewhat interesting, but nothing like i hoped. I was planning on it being alot more creepy or w/e. Ok, a few questions, for those of you that use film, or have used film cameras, what was the typican turn out rate per roll of 24 exposures? At this time, im getting about 3 or 4 really solid pictures and about 5 or 6 others that aren't that bad, and the rest are pretty much garbage. This normal? i know that not every shot is going to turn out, but should my turnout rate be higher? Secondly, in photoshop, is there any filter that will reduce the grain in some of these pictures? I was taking these late, like around 8-830 yesterday, so there was no direct sunlight, which you can see in the waterfall pic. A few of the pics that would have turned out well are garbage because of the grain...and i know i wont get great detail, but it still looks like garbage with the grain so detailed.
