Spotted chair

Spotted chair
Pentax IQZoom 60
Kodak T-Max 400
LegacyPro L110 H (1+63)

I wonder if I’ve been wrong about L110, which is a Kodak HC-110 developer clone — at least as pertains to Kodak T-Max 400.

I’ve panned L110 for delivering soft results that sometimes defy sharpening via Photoshop’s unsharp mask command. But this image looks plenty sharp. And for having been scanned on my flatbed scanner, it’s pretty smooth.

I think my scanner is the weak link in my process for sharing images with you. It’s probably as good as a flatbed scanner can be.

At any rate, T-Max 400 in L110 1+63 appears to be a winning combination.

          924 E Westfield Blvd, Indianapolis, IN 46220. In the heart of Broad Ripple!

            I’ll have to look it up someday. By the way, that’s a great picture of you and your wife. Also,

            I’m sorry that you write all these amazing reviews of cameras and film and it goes totally over my head. But I always love your images!

          Don’t worry about it. I expect half my audience doesn’t connect with the camera reviews. That’s why I put in so many photos from the camera — who doesn’t like to look at a good photo?

          Thanks, I think my wife and I make a good looking couple. Especially when the bags under our middle-aged eyes are hidden behind sunglasses.

            You make a great couple! And those bags are signs of a life well lived. At least that’s what I say about my own!!

    Fun wall painting.
    Minds are strange. The b/w and a couple of the color shots couldn’t figure or understand the back of the chair. Combination of window and angle guessing. Clearest to me was the first color shot, though the longer I relook easier to see.

      I’m used to looking at it so I see it fine from any angle, but I can see how it’s a little abstract from some angles!

    What a cute building! I really do need to explore more of Indianapolis one of these days. And cute picture of the two of you also! :)

      Thanks! Plenty to see here, if you know where to look.

    Very nice, Jim. That’s some photogenic building art, for sure. However, what draws me into this image more than anything are the clouds and their arrangement.

    1. Jim Grey Avatar

      It’s nice that T-Max brings in clouds without a filter.

        Yes, it is. The very first time I ever shot T-MAX (both 100 and 400) that was the thing that immediately struck me about it. The sky was rendered much darker than most traditional films and thus cloud-sky separation was phenomenal.
