    there's much more but i dont want to spam the board with them lol. i got at least 34 keepers lol - i definately own it to film since slide film makes you really careful when it comes down to exposure and makes you think about your composition more :474:

    Really nice Roman! The colors, especially of the last two, are out of this world! The water is so wet!
     
  3. That's what I am talking about colors magnificently captured.

    Thanks.

    Wow.
    Beautiful.
    I've just handed in a roll of Velvia to the lab, but I didn't shoot anything as exciting as this.
    Awesome textures as well, it's not just the colour. You just *know* what it's going to feel like to put your hand on those mossy rocks in number two...
     
  5. Have yet to try this film, is Freestyle better prices? Would think so, love the greens
    and blues in these.
     
  6. Doesn't get much better than number 2. Nice set. I'm going try this film.

    To the Photographers with Images on this posting:

    Excellent images. I think that Velvia (ISO 50) will be a good substitute film when Kodachrome 64 disappears in the next year. These images are just absolutely amazing and they show that Velvia produces results that are just as good as Kodachrome 64.

    There are two other versions of Velvia type slide films from Fuji, Fuji Fortia 50 and Fuji Fortia SP, if any photographers on this posting can get some of those and shoot them up and post the images, I would be interested in seeing them. Unfortunately, these two other slide films from Fuji are not available in the USA. Fuji Fortia 50 and Fortia SP appear to be "souped up" versions of Velvia. Fuji Fortia SP apparently is designed to photograph cherry blossoms and the SP appears to stand for "spring".

    Again, my congratulations to the photographers for taking such great images and thank you for sharing them with your other fellow photographers. By the way, Velvia is a contraction of two words, Velvet and Media, and this bit of trivia I read in one of Galen Rowell's books.

    You can get those Fuji films from Japan Exposures when they are available. Not sure if they are at present. I did buy ten rolls of Fortia last year, shot a few, gave one away. I still have it in my freezer, will probably use it this fall for a project I have cooking.
