    Shot on film: Ilford 3200 pushed to 6400, EOS 100, 35-135mm at 35mm.
    The scan isn't as clear as I'd like. - it added extra noise and lost some contrast so I tried to fix in PS but it's just not the same.

    What amazes me about this Ilford film, is the amount of detail and sharpness of detail it has. Sure there's grain - but it's amazingly sharp.


    The installation was a whole bunch of toy dolls looking out the window. These kids loved it, mainly coz they were pointing out the GI joe dolls, just like theirs at home, in the crowd.

    C&C Welcome.

    Thanks for looking.

    While I know far too little about film, and even less about film that sensitive, and about the way it was developed, and can therefore not say anything about neither the original grain you had, nor the (reduced) noise you got through scanning, I can say that I like the scene as such.

    I wonder why such highly sensitive film was needed here?
    Is it not out in the open?
