    Are these darkroom printed, C-41 negatives?

    Please be more specific and I'm sure someone can help.

    Looks like light leaks. If it is only 4 negatives, I would assume the processor/darkroom is to blame but agree with homburgers, we need a bit more information.

    I'd like to see the negatives, but judging by the one print shown, it looks to me like the film might have been rewound in the wrong direction. Why this would only appear on a few frames, I'm not sure; the one time I did this myself, all of my exposures were affected.

    That's a lot of blue lines there…

    I suspect it's more of a print-developing error. I can't imagine ever getting such uniform light leaks in a camera.

    The thing that I noticed first is that the lines coincide with the sprocket holes. That's why I think it has something to do with the film getting wound the wrong way.

    My thoughts too. Maybe it will make more sense if I have a Bombay Sapphire Gin Martini with two garlic stuffed olives.

    The person you quoted seems to be a signature spammer: check his/her other posts. Registered a couple of days ago...

    Looks like the photo has an overall blue cast as well. Probably a lab error.

    Also, your English so far is fine ;-)
