  1. Having just expressed my displeasure with my scanner in an earlier thread, here are three Velvia 50 scans. While the post-processed results still lack dynamic range and I'm not satisfied with the sharpness, the Velvia is far more forgiving than Kodachrome.
    Fill out the thread with your own automotive shots . . . .

  2. One used to rarely see paint work as perfect as this, but this small-town car show had numerous examples of mirrorlike paint.

  3. Does anyone else have so much trouble with distortion in their glasses? I can rarely get a proper horizontal orientation any more.

  8. To get things to line up try using a grid type screen. Very nice photos.
     
  9. Thanks, and nice contributions by the rest, too. I do use a D screen at times. My glasses lenses produce distortion similar to a terrible wide angle lens, only it is variable and changes with my eye position at the viewfinder. Even the D screen doesn't necessarily offer success.
    They also make some amazing chromatic aberration. Near the edges of the lenses, a bright red advertising marquee splits into a double image of amber and green. Red and blue on a plane surface appear to be one behind the other. Guess I need a fluorite element in my glasses.
    More contributions?
     
  10. I can rarely get a proper horizontal orientation any more.​
    Yeah, I have that problem too and if I'm hand holding the camera, while the grid screen helps I still end up cock-eyed sometimes. I have come to rely on guide lines and grids in Photoshop to help.
    Alan, Your scans look pretty good on my monitor. Nice shots!

  13. Years ago, my young son and I went cruising around Allentown, PA taking pictures of tow trucks. We had a great time and still have the scrapbook.
