    Dazzling

    Dazzling light on a picture.
    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.

    I'm guessing "Adobe Light Room 2", which is off topic.

    Yes.
    But I don't consider this thread as a scanner one.

    I don't see halation.

    I see over-exposure of the highlights.

    Scanning plus digital manipulation makes the over-exposure look a bit like halation.

    IMHO, even the picture #1 seems to show some dazzling light (especially the shoulders of the little kid). I have never had such effect on my shots before this serie.

    Good thought, but all digital manipulation is off topic here at APUG.

    BTW, the halo you are seeing may actually be lens flare or Light Room guessing and have nothing to do with the film characteristics.

    I think that is a darn good guess.

    I'm not entirely convinced either. As Matt said, it's easy enough to manipulate something to the point you're convinced you see something.

    To me there almost seems to be a slight bit of "halation" in the original around the boy in the whitest sweater's shoulders, but it's more likely due to overexposure of the whites and scanning than the film base itself. And even if not, I don't see what difference it makes if you have to overexpose and then blow out the whites even further just to see it.

    Thanks a lot for the replies.

    I set my F80 on the D3 matrix meter mode.

    I also forgot to mention I used a Nikon AF Nikkor 70-300mm 1:4-5,6 G to take this shot.
