The colours and the soft out of focus areas are really nice but it doesn't appear to be as sharp as most of your images, was there a little camera shake?Love the detail in the bird's plumage, is this some sort of dove?

Ira,

It is a Arizona Ring Neck Dove (basically a dressed up Morning Dove) that I shot in Arizona, with that strange medium Film using my PZ-1P and my FA* 300 lens.

Kodak 100 Gold print film, then scanned with a Nikon S4000 negative scanner. The film grain seems to get in the way with print film, although I don't see that probelm with Velvia or Kodachrome slide film.

Interesting!

Tom

Having a connection issue and had to modify this post since it was the same as the first one.

I think I like digital much better than print film, although there is still the DR issue.

Oh, I see. I also have had some soft results when scanning prints or negatives, except for B&W. I was a late convert to digital but I will seldom use my film gear anymore. I gave my Minolta Maxxum kit to my oldest son, and my youngest is holding my MZ-7 Pentax for me. I sold the K1000but no-one gets my old battered KX. If you check out my images at http://www.photo.net/photos/acrummeyyou will see a number of different cameras and lenses I have used.

i think its a good shot even on film it gives a sence of history sence its film, now of days shooting digital you look back at film as a classy shooting prosess.

Just one example.

Ira,

Nice image! I really like my DS, but I still love the look of a good film shot, especially slide film.
