    This is 5.30am East Java in Indonesia and is typically referred to as Bromo. The area is the Tengger Caldera with the front central volcano being Batok, the broken one off to the left smoking is Bromo and the large one in the distance is Semeru (highest point in Indonesia). This was shot with a Mamiya 7II and the 65mm

    Ahh! I knew I recognized that signature sharpness!

    Thanks, and again, what a gorgeous shot!

    In my hands I have never, ever been able to make shots that I considered even half way as good with Portra film. I wish that I could, as this film is still in the shops. But for whatever reason, I havent been able to do so. The colors just are not as beautiful to me. I am meaning to try again, this time rating the film a bit lower than box speed. That's the only thing I can think of that would perhaps improve things.

    Seriously if I could live with only 2 films for the rest of my life it would be tri-x and astia. Oh if only Fuji had the heart to restart astia production...
    I have 4 rolls of 120 left and I dont know what I'll do for colour film after that. I like velvia 50 for some things but how does provia rate against astia? Is there any filtration that could reduce provia's inherent 'coldness'? perhaps a warming filter or redhancer?

    Start developing it yourself, if you already aren't. Shorten the first developer just slightly, dilute reversal bath by 25% and add 4 mol NaOH to the colour developer. That worked for me. Or underexpose and do a longer first developer, but the shadows could get blocked, depending on the light. I did tests with two grades of 81 filters and there was almost no difference in colour.
