There are two rivers in front of my house (actually, windows on one side of the house look at the nature and the windows on the other side look at the citiy, the busy, road, the buildings...) and a really interesting area for walking, relaxing. Some mornings are indescribably beautiful, but I've never picked up the camera to catch what I'm seeing there because digital would ruin the feel. I waited film.

Thank you @480sparky! Hope you don't feel sorry for giving me the camera... and I'm soo :586: with bw film

Love the mist and the mood of all of these!

I asked about the purple cast in your other thread and I have to ask again - were these possibly scanned in as color? Did you do some work in post? I'm not saying it looks bad, because it kind of works for these scenes, but only because it's not what straight black and white scans tend to look like.

IMO, she definitely has a noticeable style. Her digital have a mysterious quality to them as well. I am not sure if she intended that with these but they scream mmaria.

The b&w film I sent her is Ilford XP2. It's a panchromatic film that's developed in C-41. I suspect the magenta cast if due to the commercial processor that developed and scanned the film isn't used to seeing black & white film.

A simple desaturation is all that would be needed to remove the cast.

Ah, that explains it. I didn't remember that you'd sent her the XP2, so the lab probably did scan it in color because of the C41 processing.

Like I said, I do actually like the purplish cast for these scenes, but I just wanted to make sure she knew what to expect the first time she gets back scans from true b&w negatives.

The more I look at those pictures, Marija, the more I am in love with the last one. So atmospheric!

These are wonderful Maria.

I noticed the purplish cast too. Leo's probably right about which film it was that it could be the scans from the lab.

I've had the same problem with my scanner. I've scanned some of my B&W darkroom prints and kept getting purplish inkjet prints. Eventually I noticed in Photoshop that it showed RBG across the top and realized the scanner was adding color.

So I use Remove Color to get rid of the color the scanner added to get back to the original B&W. (I think it must be the light of the scanner, that it has a cast to it that Photoshop reads as color/RGB.)

it's funny but when I first saw my "film" photos I thought that they are the most beautiful photos I've ever taken. But seriously! ( it doesn't mater that these have just 5 likes :))

Of course, I've never felt similar with any of my photos. I, occasionally have the feel that I did something good when shooting with digital... but I've never felt that any of my photos could be "beautiful"
And I didn't do anything, film did that

glad you like it :D

I have a few more to share

and I really appreciate that you two pointed that ... I learned something :)
