    P.S. on the topic of whether we should be discussing this: I think we should. Here is a person who is using film; let us help him get the most out of that and help him present his images without unnecessary artifacts. Moreover, I do sometimes see scan artifacts in the gallery images here e.g. sharpening halos, posterization, clipping etc.

    P.P.S. Oh, so I agree with Ron

    They are both good and valid responses and I concur.
    Drum scans, despite their often obscene cost (e.g. $45 for a 35mm tranny at hi-res) deliver the best results.
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.

    you paid for scans like this ?
    take them back and ask for them
    to be done without ice, and other enhancements. or your money back.
    even a cheaper than 100$ scanner gives better results than this ...

    I agree with Ron, low resolution printed too big, not over sharpened as many here suggest.
    I have a Fuji roll scanner here and there is no setting of sharpening that could produce anything close to that artifact.
