Alan, both very beautiful images, obviously the one that is more zoomed in is the color I'm thinking. Question, did you use the filter on one and not on the other?

They should have fixed before they ever released it. I only shot one roll of 100f and that was enough, I just didn't like it compared to rvp.
Well by reading the data sheet, it indicates that there some kind of special color filter in order to prevent a lot of the bad saturation colors, perhaps that's the one for preventing read? They seem to only suggest using it when you're shooting long exposures, but I definitely don't have one of those filters, do you?
