    Hmmmmm [​IMG] ... the way it shows here it is a bit on the bright side but I don't know if this is from the film being old? I am not sure an overall shadow/highlight adjustment will do this one any good, for there are quite deep shadows on the left which would then become all featureless and black...

    As to the composition: I would not crop a thing here. I like how that one shadow that points towards us is kept within your frame and has been left intact. I would not want to touch that one.

    Have you applied any pp things to it after the scan? Such as sharpening? It looks a tad over-sharpened to me... maybe?

    yea, the brightness was just from my inexperience. The sharpness that you mentioned, that is sort of what I was talking about. I didn't ps this at all, I try to stay away from that because I tend to make my pictures look horrible. The other pictures from this roll had that weird, sandy quality as well.

    Thanks for the positive feedback :)

    Part of the brightness is from lens flare. (note the green tint at the middle)

    I think the "weird sandy quality" is from underexposure. Your camera saw the sun, and dialed the exposure down as a result.

    In the future, If possible, try a lens shade if you have to shoot with the sun blasting across or into your lens.
