    This.

    Judging from my own very similar results, what you are seeing there is a function of how the scan was made. Easy fix in Photoshop if you want to bring that down a bit.

    You'll have to try a lot harder than this to blow out highlights using Portra 160!

    Love the shot, BTW. Love the "Portra-ness" of it. I'm shooting a lot of stuff like this lately, and am totally in love with the results.
    I shoot digital when I have to (most of those shots end up here) and film (occasionally one of those shots ends up here) when I want to.

    The skin is rendered with a sheen like that because the girl is human and is perspiring.

    Thanks Dinesh! It's really interesting gather feedback, I have it on another board too and it's similar to this one. About 1 in 6 like it, 1 isn't bothered, and 4 will say she should be on the right side. Really cool insight into peoples tastes.

    Very good to know, I definitely need to experiment with scanning more, it really is like an art to itself.

    I'm totally in love with portra it scans so well too. I'm literally spending all my extra money to support my film habit lol.

    Too me it looks like there was too much contrast added. Portra, especially 160 has very low contrast and under saturated look. I would decrease the contrast and bring down the highlights. It's next to impossible to blow highlights on negative film.
