On Sunday I visited the Allenby Road Industrial Estate once more to use the discontinued Kodak Technical PAN, which is a slow film (ISO 25) with undetectable grain, and high contrast (poor exposure latitudes unlike most other monochromatic films). The film itself stopped being sold in 2004, however I was able to acquire some 35mm rolls from my uncle.

Canon EOS 600 and a 28-135mm lens. The film was developed for 7 minutes, 1+19 (at 20) using Paterson FX-39. The film was later scanned using a Plustek 7400 at either 7200 or 3600dpi. Although it is a monochromatic film, I decided to scan it in colour, resulting in golden casts across the images. Photoshop work was minimal - it was mainly cloning foreign artefacts out, or adjusting the tones using curves.

The rest of the images in this set are on my website (link of pf), post dated 23rd January 2012.

The film may be old and discontinued, but it's certainly been used to its best effect. The technical processing has gone way over my head, but it looks like you've had a lot of fun and effort to produce this image - not the prettiest of buildings, but there is a wonderful 'gritty' feeling to the shot.

The film and the processing you have carried out suit the subject matter very well. it has a timeless quality about it.

best wishes

I love the tone of this shot.

What may let it down on the screen here is a lack of sharpness, and this may only be due to loss of detail during file compression, so you should get into the habit of checking the re sized image before uploading it, - see if its sharp (it normally will have lost sharpness) and apply the required amount, save, and then upload.


Ive loaded a mod where Ive also cropped. It looks better to me, but it loses part of the buildings on the left that my be important
