    I recently returned from a trip to New Orleans.

    As an alternative to A&I out in California, which for me has always done an outstanding job but its distance means a long turnaround time, I decide to drive my exposed 35mm T-Max 400 film from here in Naples over to Dale Labs in Ft. Lauderdale for processing.

    The results were very disappointing: scratched negative; spots and splotches all over the CD images; and spots and splotches on the photos themselves.

    My local pro lab here in little ol' Naples can do better than that.

    I inquired at my local Ritz, and they send B&W to their lab in Atlanta. Does anyone have any experience with the Ritz lab in Atlanta for 35mm B&W processing?

    Thanks.

    I know that this is old, but did you discuss the situation with Dale at the time?
