OK all and sundry who may read this thread......COPIA the lab in Barcelona that I found is about 8 euros cheaper per roll and about 100% better than all of the others. I walked into the shop front and could smell the developer and fixer (v. good sign). The girl behind the counter got the bloke who does the processing to come and look at my issues. Of the 20 odd rolls that I had left to process he suggested that I do 1 and if happy do the rest. I am a very happy chappie and can unconditionally recommend these folks. Per roll of B&W with contacts, 11 euros + change. Do not bother going anywhere else in Barca this is the only joint worth looking at - mind you I ONLY did B&W but if their results for me are indicative of their colour work then try them out. cheers for now, sam
