    I'm sorry, but IMO thwse shots are soooo much better than the Nikon 1 series shots you posted yesterday. These have got life, soul and depth to them. Third one especially. Just wish that shadow wasn't there.

    Nicely done. Did you scan these in on your Epson? What resolution can you get from that?

    Well, 35mm film is "full frame" so of course there's more depth...and these were shot with a ƒ2.8mm prime vs the 10-30mm Nikon 1 zoom lens :biggrin:

    I scanned with my Epson v500 at 6400 dpi TIFF and save at 6400 dpi for printing purproses. For web posting, I resize to 1600 and save as JPEG :smile:

    I thought printing was max 300 dpi?

    Thanks for sharing your workflow, though.

    What is the focal length on those shots? I don't think it's just the DOF that makes the images jump out.

    Perhaps this explains it better (from the Epson page).

    Optical Resolution: 6400 dpi1

    Hardware Resolution: 6400 x 9600 dpi

    Maximum Resolution: 12,800 x 12,800 dpi

    Effective Pixels: 54,400 x 74,880 (6400 dpi)

    That 1963 Falcon with the 260 cubic-inch V8 was essentially a Mustang with a different body. Great, sporty compact for the time. The original Mustang came out a year later (April of 1964) with the same V8 option. The 289 V8 came out a number of months later, essentially with the 1965 model year.

    There's a very good perspective and FOV in your shots. DOF aside, I think this convinces me that the Panasonic 14mm prime would be a very good lens to add to my kit. Thank you!

    Speaking of Panasonic....I almost purchased the 7-14, but instead I walked out with the 45mm Leica/Panasonic MACRO.....:smile:
