I was shot with a 35mm Minolta, late afternoon. The noise may be fron old 1600 ASA film. it is a problem I have had in the past, but the scan on to my computer did not show so much noise. The time stamp was on but i did not notice it until i saw the sacn. In my humble opinion if I print it on a textured water color paper it will look much better. Thanks for the C and C.
