Grain: I've compared on two monitors, both CRT and flat-screen, rapidly switching from one to the other. Flat-screen monitors are best for comparison because their focus doesn't vary, and grain is more conspicuous on them.

BTW, the scanner was manually focussed on one of the two house-windows.
The rolls are mostly identical frames, so I can scan more frames.
Sharpness: The photos were taken about 20 minutes apart, and the sun had moved a little, so deeper shadows on the tile roof might increase percieved sharpness in the concentrate. The sharpness of the other lines in the photos look the same to me.
EDIT: On further critical exam, I notice that other lines are a bit sharper in the concentrate, such as the window-frames. I wonder if this is a focus-issue with the scanner (which would affect grain-perception), or if the concentrate is actually sharper. I'll definitely make some more scans.
