    Finally had opportunity to do an outdoors evening shot of the night sky.

    I probably should have dialed it back to 30sec cos there is a little smearing due to star trailing.

    some would say that your "treatment" gives your image an analogue feel (film), except that I could never get that much dynamic range from any of my films

    warning: off topic of the thread

    Thanks ... its almost as good as negative. I've found that the biggest obstacle to getting full range out of it is the totally ham fisted attempts at printing or scanning.

    Sadly prints by master printers (not just machines) are few and people seldom got to see the negatives. Scanners were for a short time a tool to enable the photographic printer to get nearly Ansel Adams levels of tonality out of a negative, sadly however that too soon fell to automation and people were unable to distinguish between Neg and Chrome and somehow fell to loving chromes which (even according to the film makers themselves) had inferior tonal range.

    Some examples:
    This is typical of the sort of difference that can be had from a Neg by proper care in scanning VS leaving it on Auto
    workFlowComparison.
    I doubt you'd ever get that level of detail in the buildings and in the boat with a Digital without resorting to HDR (which is nowdays getting better with electronic shutter enabling rapid stacks of exposure and reducing blur)

    Here's a sample of what I normally expect from supermarket grade colour negative:

    although handled deftly even chromes can deliver, its just harder to get them "right"
