  6. Petera (downunder), not quite sharp enough and blown out highlights. Tell me about its making. Cropped? I see that you used film. Tell me about its processing. Whatever, you've captured a singular and exceptional image here. Bravo and regards. Arthur (apiarist1)
  7. Regarding Bill's sunflower image, Maybe that lens really is worth the money. Great image.
  8. Hello Arthur and thanks for your kind words I hope you and yours are travelling well. It may sound strange to you but I actually don't spend much time or thought on 'sharpness' or 'blown highlights' or anything in particular - I might change my mind if I ever see a photograph I like that is 'about' sharpness or 'not blown highlights'...

    Regarding processing I had the Superia ( ISO200) developed in a one hour developing place which charged me $5 a roll of 24 or 36 and I bought the film for $2 a roll of 24. This image was then scanned on an Epson flatbed scanner and imported in LR - where I decided to keep the green caste caused by the fluorescent lighting and desaturate slightly - midtones and darks were modified via luminance masks.

    the shot was made as indicated with an XPan11 and a 45 lens - I sincerely regret selling the kit which also included the rare 30mm and viewfinder as well as the 90. - but I have no interest shooting film anymore and haven't had for over ten years.
