Maybe it was worth the while ordering that CD along with having the lab develop that FujiSuperia400 film in my EOS 500N and get me prints, for my printer would have (did in this case as I was curious) scanned this print like this (no PS work applied): This, of course, is nowhere NEAR to what the print looks like, so after some PS, my scan looked like this: The same photo taken from the CD I ordered (and resized), however, looks like this: So yes, in the end I think it was worth the (high) price of ordering the CD all along. What I could have economised on were the prints, maybe, since I make most use of my photos here, on TPF, i.e. in the internet... But well. I was much more curious to find out what I photographed with the Leica, but that was an Ilford HP5 Plus400, and black&white processing seems to take a lot longer. Both films must have sat in the respective cameras for a little over a year. I remember that the photo above was taken at some time in February of 2008 ... cough-cough.
