    To be honest Peter I think you need to do a bit more, There's a greeny-yellow cast still present.

    I had a quick go with Pixlr...

    OK -- here are some from a day trip to Cambridge with Family -- we went to the Park'n'Ride and they accepted my Pensioner's Bus Pass so FREE return to Car Park -- i carried 1984 Mamiya C220 for B&W and 1969 Rolleiflex 3.5F Planar for Colour. Scanner was my lovely Canon 9000F Mk II + Vuescan Pro + FastStone Image Viewer

    Hi all, first time posting here, I'm a fellow lover of all thigs analogue, maybe not the best photographer though. Been shooting and developing B&W for a while but this is my first attempt processing C41 at home. Took these on holiday in Portugal with an old Agfa Isolette and Ektar 100, took a bit of messing about trying to get the colours right, not sure how good they are?

    Not at all bad for an Isolette which, let's face it, hardly has the best viewfinder ever fitted to a camera.

    Focusing can be a bit of a gamble too!

    Even, sad to say, with the Isolette III's rangefinder.

    Although the rangefinder is accurate you need to be careful about opening the camera. The bellows are so tightly sealed that they can suck the film a surprising distance through the gate if you let the spring pull the lens out too fast. I speak as one who spoiled some interesting shots before I twigged what was happening :(

    Epping and Ongar Railway 1940's event with my 1962 Rolleicord Vb and 1993 Dated ORWO NP22 fillum ! The 75mm f3.5 Schneider XENAR lens was very good -- I used some 'fill-in flash' from a Philips 25CB unit and mostly around f8 because of the light levels. I processed the Fillum in my Home-Made -FX-4 Formula 1+1. Nobody noticed the Rollei was NOT ACTUALLY 1940's -- It caused lots of comments ! I used the 16-on set.

    Your two young ladies look particularly authentic, Pete. And easy on the eye, too.

    Some photos from the D-Day commemorations at IWM Duxford on June 5th - taken with my Kodak Retina II. A long-expired roll of Kodak BW400CN given to me after I put "roll of film" in my secret santa request (I really like the idea of a secret santa where you can make requests, it's got me book tokens, books I wanted, and beer, what's not to like?) -mind you, my secret santa did rather out themselves by giving me the film later on when they found it!

    Depressingly, I think these might be the best of the day - attempting to use shutter priority with a lens that won't support it and no image stabilisation, plus a dodgy preview button (that has worked perfectly since...) has given me a memory card and a half's worth of blurry pics.

    Almost derelict shed:

    Bessa 6x9 and Pan F+.
    Developed in FD10, which I don't think I like.

    Seen a lot more derelict than that!

    If it's a similar Bessa to mine, that's a nice bit of kit.

    Ahem. We still let the cattle use it.

    It is, but I prefer the 6x6, it seems sharper somehow.

    If they are old cattle, does that make them the Justified Ancients of Moo Moo?
