    Hmm, looks like a very neutral film.

    What are 'you' hunting for? Hunting was banned a while ago, It'd be interesting to know how it's still being kept alive.

    The shots you posted don't convey the benefits of using film to me, even less so considering it's 120. I think it looks quite flat. The only 120 I've shot is Provia, it's the only 5x4 film I've shot too. I'd recommend it but I don't have a lot to compare it to.

    Edit:

    I'd like to have posted a better picture than this, I don't have the permission of the 'model' to post the best images. I think this was shot on a Bronica. Ignore the bad focus and subject matter, it's purely for colour representation!

    This might give you an idea of what would happen with graffiti!

    But. hey. What do I know about film? I'm just a random on the internet. I just read a thing that says that internet critique is pointless, people invariably say they like it or it's not good enough. This is where I'm coming from.

    Weddings - are you insane! That film is affecting your mind! (probably that negative smell!)

    Many of the hunts that are still running follow a scent trail set down by keepers. So even though they can't track a fox they have a scent trail to track after instead. *here endeth most of what I know about hunting*


    On the shot front last one (by Gary) looks fairly contrasty to me and between the blue sky and white horse looks like a fairly wide dynamic range (maybe slightly wider than digital?) however its always hard to compare things on the computer. Also maybe the film needs to be pushed/adjusted after scanning to show its true potential against processed digital.

    Fuji 160S was my favorite color film. It was recently discontinued (why does that always happen to my favorite films?), and this is what replaced it. By the looks of your photos, I think I'll like it just fine.
