I got asked this very question just a few days ago. I had a nice conversation with the other photographer (who was using a Canon 60D DSLR). I explained that I prefer the look of film, especially black and white film that I develop myself. I said that although I often scan the negatives, I do have access to a darkroom and that nothing compares to a real optical print. Finally I told her how I also make my own developers sometimes, and that this process is more "hands on" than digital could ever be (for me at any rate). I think she understood my point.
