    Certainly looks sufficiently in focus to me, Richard. Great shot and a very natural expression.

    Something to shoot after continual heavy rain? Well not far from me the road gets flooded so now and again take some shots..got quite a few with different vehicles splashing through. Might look better cropped.

    I re-scanned some old negatives tonight, on my flatbed scanner. It's an infuriating thing to use, but I think I'm getting there.

    I really like the muted tones on this, almost dreamy. Tried to process it accordingly, so as not to lose that quality.

    Another shot for my enthusiasm for a CZJ 28mm...I'm not saying everyone should buy one as the copy variation for East German lenses is more than say Nikon..but there is something in my copy that can make some ordinary looking shots come alive, maybe it's because it's a contrasty lens, but a combo of this lens plus 4th colour Superia 200 plus Tesco dev and scan worked for me......as said I would use it more but it's in Praktica BC1 mount and don't have many lenses for that.

    Oof, on second look on my work monitor in the daytime, my shots are full of dust! That'll teach me to do scanning at night...

    Well I always use spot healing in Photoshop, what I have never tried is digital ice when scanning.

    I use one of those big rocket blower things to blow any dust off the glass of my flatbed scanner and negs immediately before scanning each strip of negs, this seems to help. (y)

    Same here. I prep the scanning area with a damp dust, then blow both sides of the negs with a rocket blower (other brands are available :)) once they're in the holder and also wipe the scanner glass with a microfiber cloth before I place each set in the machine. It's a bit of a faff, but it removes most of the dust (though never ALL of it :() from the resulting scans.

    I tend to use just the blower on the scanner glass, unless there are smears or stubborn bits of dust, in case it generates static electricity and attracts more of the damn stuff. :(

    Dust is a curse..I read somewhere that the body sheds about 1.5lbs of skin each year OR 30,000 to 40,000 skin cells fall off every hour..then there is dandruff and then there is.................:eek:

    You could probably install your scanner in a clean room at Jet Propulsion Laboratory and still somehow get some dust on the negs.

    Yes, I learnt to store my negs properly after leaving a dev'd roll lying around for a couple of weeks before scanning - absolutely horrendous dust, fine hairs etc, and it's a lot more difficult to clean that I had thought, there's a fine line between cleaning and scratching the emulsion! So prevention is better than cure with dust on negs, though nothing seems to prevent the odd speck here or there.

    Digital ICE only works on colour film, doesn't it? I found it to be really good on my Nikon Coolscan IV, but not tried it on this Epson flatbed yet. Might be worth a shot!

    I didn't make things easy for myself, really. I have to scan on the floor, as I don't have a desk at home (dust), the cat was milling about (dust), and I kept flapping the cover open and closed to fiddle with the neg holder (more dust!). I'll just claim it's all on purpose, for a "vintage feel".

    A lesson I quickly learnt when I used to develop my own film, don't leave negatives anywhere remotely dusty to dry, then store them in sleeves as soon as possible, otherwise they end up looking like Lon Chaney Jr at full moon! :banghead:
