  1. Very nice range of tones in that shot. I thought it looked a lot like tri-x and when I googled Arista there were a lot of comments on APUG that it was repackaged tri-x. I look at the tri-x group daily at Flickr; hard to top those results with any other b&w.


    • Thanks so much Mike. I’ve been playing around with this post-processing tool called LUCiD, which helped me enhance sharpness (or more precisely, acutance) in this shot without messing with the good tonality in the scan. It made the detail in the windows really stand out. I have not had as much luck balancing both with the tools in (or maybe my knowledge of) Photoshop.

      I take it as a given that the Arista Premium 400 is Tri-X. I wish the Arista hadn’t been discontinued, as it was less expensive than Tri-X.
