    I'm net getting any feedback for this post in "Beyond the Basics" forum so let me try here.

    Have recently moved to Bucaramanga Colombia and since there is no slide film or processing available here, am switching to scanned negatives for my nature photography.

    Would appreciate any comments on the test shot I have posted on my website.

    Am concerned about what seems to be green from the leaf bleeding into the adjacent black (have included enlargements of that area).

    Any other comments regarding quality of scan and possible fixes are appreciated. Keep in mind that the shot was for test purposes only and is lousy when it comes to composition.

    Camera- Olympus OM10, Olympus 50mm 1.8 w/Olympus 2X teleconverter.

    Scanner- Fuji SP-3000

    File- JPEG 3637 X 2433


    Thanx, Alan

    It looks to me that it's just because that part is out of focus. Do you have an example that's in focus?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit

    yes, looks like that part of the images is not really in focus.

    the noise you see will most likely be a combination of scanner noise and film grain, maybe just the grain.

    and you always get some extra blur from the scanning process. you always have to sharpen in postprocessing. even with the best film scanners on the market.

    I always do some software grain reduction and sharpening after the scan.
