Very pleased with this one - it's the first shot I've scanned from the first film I've processed myself in around 15 years!

This was taken last Saturday at the Chatham Historic Dockyard "Salute to the 40's&" event, using my Minolta Dynax 7, and my Sony STF135mm F2.8 [T4.5] lens, on Ilford HP5 400, and thanks to the data back on this camera, I know that it was shot at 1/250th at f/4.5.

Developed in Ilford Ilfosol 3 for 9.5 minutes, it was scanned on my Epson Perfection V700 at 4800dpi in 24bit colour, and cleaned up in Photoshop CS5, before having a slight contrast boost, and a frame added by Nik Colour Efex.

The actual shot is the name badge and radiator grille of a vintage fire-engine that was part of a static display.
