An experiment

By leontari
I have taken the same scene by two ways. V1 by a digital camera. Few minutes later and two or three steps ahead I took the same scene by an analog camera( 35 mm b-w film, ISO 400) . When I developed the analog picture I saw the difference. Different light and the sun had come through the trees.
I would like to thank you all of you,for you warm comments and votes on my last upload.

The Boulevard du Montparnasse in October. Nicely captured. Smile V1

Two great, contrasting images, Effrossini!
There seems to be more contrast in V2!
I've scanned a few 'film' photos and, often, there seems to be less 'work' to do on the 'levels'.

v2 looks better with the greater contrast but I'm sure you could achieve the same look in v1 with processing.

V1 gets the vote, V2 is too crowded.

Intriguing to see the two images together. I do prefer the contrastier V2, though a slight tweak in software would adjust V1 accordingly.
The narrower angle of view on the film camera might also account for some of the difference.
Paris on a sunny October day: heaven!

Fascinating experiment, I guess the digital would be the easiest to manipulate to suit a particular taste. I think I would prefer something between the two.

Hi Vi is the better image for sure digital has corrected the faults. Lens flare is bad in V2 and the whites are over exposed. If you try again maybe a very deep Red filter will improve the exposure for you....John.

Hi Effrossini. V1 for me today I feel V2 is too contrasty for my liking. (Nice street scene.
13 Feb 2013 12:47PM

Amazing images but it's V2 all the way for me, love the atmosphere light and nostalgia that film produces, great work.

Vintage street shot - can't help it but v2 is the one I like best. The light flare adds to the quality of the light you were shooting in. The latest thing I've been seeing is portrait photography shot into the sun - seems the lens flare is all the rage right now for adding interest and punch to an image.

Two fine images from this French street scene. Vintage stuff certainly suited to mono. I think I just prefer V1.
