Feh. My roll of Velvia 50 came back looking like a mess- it has all kinds of streaks visible in the midtones/highlights and they're present through the whole roll. The lab I used (Manhattan Color Lab on E20th) said they thought it was the emulsion; the next roll through their dip and dunk was a roll of Provia 100 I ran through the same camera, and it came out fine.
Overexposed but shows the streaks:
The light was beautiful and warm as the sun was setting, but this one is streaky too; you can see it in the sky to the left and right, and at larger sizes in the upper part of the building.
I think I will have to head back and try again the next clear evening I can go-
A shot (on a roll that survived the lab in good shape) that I'm pretty happy with:
Oooh, great photos! I've finally gotten mine back from the lab and posted them on flickr. Here's the set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sokrasi...7627451995144/
One of these days, I'm going to get more serious about my dust management... one of these days.
I really like your second image Steve.
And Stan, image 8, 9, and 10 in b&w are just too fucking awesome! I am going to have to bring my mamiya out. so crisp and sharp.
Stan, Dust Never Sleeps !
But, while you're waiting for it to get tired, you can use my Adams Retouching Machine, in the meanwhile.
An Excellent set of photographs !
Wow, I looked up the Adams Retouching Machine, and that thing is quite the contraption! I think my problem is with dust on the, ummm, *cough* scanner *cough*, so it should be easily fixed, I'm just very lazy :P
