    red, pruple, orange combined doesn't look good in B/W

    Portra 160 VC or NC, Ektar 100
    Pro 160 c/s, Reala 100, Superia 100

    I would go with E100G. It looks like you want negative and out of that probably Ektar. I just took some really nice photos on E100G of a sunset and I was really pleased. I can try to scan some of the prints in a little while.

    That's a really nice shot! It is ver empowering. It looks weird to look at a sunset on B&W since most are taken in color.....

    I would use the Portra VC, and save the Ektar for something a little less dramatic. Perhaps even Portra NC. On the other hand, you won't have lab monkeys playing with your color if you use slide film.

    I'd go for the Ektar.

    Life is too short to bend the tyranny of restrained colors. :smile:
