    For reference Reala prints very well onto Fuji Crystal Archive; probably due to well matched dye sets.

    Please forgive my ignorance here, but is Reala still being manufactured? I was under the impression it was discontinued years ago??

    I haven't shot Reala in years, but isn't a portrait film that supresses facial blemishes?

    If this is a lab print, it's a scan and digital print. Blame the scan operator and try an optical print directly to RA4. However, it's a very overcast scene and Reala (unsurprisingly for its name) has fairly accurate saturation so the photo is kind of flat. If you want more punch, try Ektar. But really, the fault here is your choice of lighting not the film's.

    Reala can look pretty good IMHO and is quite available at least in 120.

    I like Reala for portraits, it's really nice and it's pretty smooth, it's not super contrasty and has very nice, natural color.
    Here's a few shot's on Reala http://www.bcarlsonmedia.com/2012/06/07/fuji-reala-100/
    Everybody has a photographic memory, some just don't have film.

    Change your lab, I've used Reala for years, and it's not only colourful but also very sharp, this says it all http://www.caughtinthelight.co.uk/in...?showimage=136

    Looks like a reasonable result from a scan. Based on the assessment of the scene, it looks realistic. As others have said, maybe you need to use a more saturated or contrasty film.

    It ma depend on where you live.

    I find Reala not to my liking in Southern California and Nevada light. It comes out dull and lifeless.
