    No, I base my thinking on my experience of shooting a lot of both films and comparing the results, I don't dispute that Ektar is a wonderful general purpose colour neg. film that can be used for portraiture at a pinch, but is not the best film for producing natural skin tones in various different lighting conditions that Kodak Portra or Fuji Pro 160S films that were specifically devised for portrait work do.

    I agree. Even though I like the look of Ektar in certain situations, Portra yields the most natural skin tones among currently available films, and even it can't hold a candle to many of the discontinued Kodak color films. (Pro 100T,Vericolor III, Ektachrome 64T). I would've used Portra 160 NC to make the picture I posted above had I had any at the time.

    The photo posted above was made at sunset with flash fill, so it's probably not a good benchmark for color rendition.
