    Underexposure leads to the mushy-looking, washed out grain, and overexposure leads to the sharp, gnarly grain.
    From looking at that photo I posted, which way do you think I went? I was periodically over-exposing, but didn't take notes.

    It is hard to tell from a small Internet picture. It is especially hard to tell if the pic is from a mini lab scan. If you look at your negs, you will be able to see how each shot is exposed.

    FWIW, the pic you posted doesn't look that grainy to me.

    Was the film fresh?

    Got some. That's probably next, after I finish the next roll of Fuji I have loaded.

    I personally would go with Ektachrome but if you want negative film I would use the new Ektar 100 or any of the films out of the Portra Family
