    What's up with this?

    This is a composite of 2 adjacent frames scanned from a single roll of NPS 160 in 135 format shot a while back ago but just recently processed in Arista C-41 chems.

    Shot is downtown KL, 2008.

    What I'm curious about is that nothing else on the roll has the dynamic range these 2 frames seem to have - and at the time nothing special was done - no goofing around with HDR or anything of the like. I noticed after scanning that the frames almost looked like an illustration but upon viewing at 100% one can of course recognize shadow detail and grain. The strange part is that none of the highlights have gone through the roof either.

    Maybe I was screwing around and it was shot at +1 or +2, I really can't remember now, but the results are pretty cool, even if not typically my thing.

    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Yes you probably overexposed a stop or two. Current C-41 films have quite a long linear range so overexposing usually does no harm to highligths so easily, but opens up shadows.
