    It is a very ordinary picture but that doesn't matter regarding the issue.
    The dazzling effect gets more important when I push on the whites while processing it thru LR2.
    I need your opinion. Personnally, I tend to believe the Fomapan doesn't have the anti-halo protection.
    Having scanned a lot of negatives, I am speculating that perhaps you are not compensating correctly in the scan for your highlights. What software are you using?

    The first picture, as I previously said, is scanned without any special light adjustment. It is just a regular scan as I do plenty of them. In the second picture, I just pushed the dark tones and did not push any whites.

    I've seen halos like that when the coating on the front element of the lens was damaged. Or maybe the lens needs to be cleaned. A fingerprint perhaps?

    d3 matrix meter mode? wow.

    anyway, i got that effect once, or similar, when I was having trouble keeping my temperatures under control and ended up practically boiling a roll of minox film -- interesting effect, actually.

    The artefact at the boys shoulder could be due to partial body movement.
    Halation ot this point of image would be symmetric.

    To albada,
    This problem has also happened while using another lens than the Nikkor mentionned up above...

    To summicron,
    I always develop at room temperature.
    "d3 matrix meter mode" Hummm..., I just copied off the term used by Rockwell that is related to the F80 light measurement modes.

    To Agx,
    I shot at speed mode with this one.

    I'm of the exact same opinion.

    Photo-gear,

    It ain't your lens, it's either over-exposure, overdevelopment or poor scanning technique. Highlight white skin tones should be light grey and there should be detail in the shadows. Even in the 'flat' scan the skin tones here are burnt out and the shadows are blocked up. Maybe the neg is overexposed and/or over developed; if this is not the case you should review your scanning workflow. Discussion of software processing is not allowed in this forum - try DPUG.

    Cheers,
    kevs
    testing...

    Ok. What specific scanning software? I am just curious.

    I have an Epson V500 and most of the time, the job is fairly well done.

    After reading all the comments, I tend now to believe it might be an over-development.
