G'day mate

And here I was - reading the title, and thinking that 'wow - you're off on hols...'

The colours look beaut - esp the blues of the water, tho it appears that the sand is a bit bleached [ie: much the same as some of my slides-to-digital copies]

Q- what's the fine detail like? ... have you blown up a portion of the original to determine sharpness & resolution?

Phil, it appears that the copy is very close to what the slide has to offer. Having to meet the constraints of posting photos on Steves did affect resolution. Did you notice the bathing suits on the ladies? Bikinis had not yet become popular. The reason that the beach is so crowded is that it was a weekend day.

Thanks mate

What I was thinking of was:

presuming that this copy is done on a 1/2-decent megapixel copier, 'would a 600px square of the copy show much detail of the actual film grain? ... sort of thing'

Taken in 1961 would explain why the beach is not shoulder to shoulder with people.

Phil, I deleted the original sized images and all I have left are the exports which are downsized for this forum. I believe that I have seen graininess on my monitor when looking at 100% crops. I usually never print at 600dpi so I doubt that grain would show up on a print.----Ron
