    Yes Folks -- Old pentaxpete got a 1st and the 'Portrait Goblet' in the Portrait Section and a 'Special Award' of Maltesers in the Landscape, Skyscape section of two PDI comps at Brentwood Photographic Club last night . I BEAT all the 'Digital Fakers' -- you should have seen their faces as I collected the awards from the Judge, Roy Essery MPAGB, Chairman of Colchester Camera Club. The PORTRAIT was taken on a feature for a local newspaper on my Asahi Pentax Electro-Spotmatic which I later sold to a Club Member who collected 'interesting Pentaxes' as it was the Japanese Home-Market version and could not be repaired in UK Available light, Kodak Tri-X fillum home-processed and printed on 10x8" which I scanned with my HP Scanjet 4570. Roy gave me the 'special award' for my 'London Skyscape' taken on my 'Gift' Minolta X-700 and outdated Fuji Velvia 50 rated 32 ASA and the 28mm Minolta lens off my SR-T100X in Kensington Gardens, London near the Princess Diana Memorial .I had been to the V&A Museum and walker up Exhibition Road to the Park.

    That'll be Casquette I think, Chapeau can mean hat though

    Chapeau is often used as a generic expression of approval and appreciation in parts of Europe: as a sign of admiration or respect, one shall indeed remove their cap

    Well done!

    I have heard 'chapeau' being used in a congratulatory manner before and always marvel at how the french word does indeed sound quite heartfelt and enthusiastic for the purpose. Calling 'hat' to someone on the other hand sounds quite sarcastic!

    Not worried at all about 'Chapeau' -- I was called worse things in the British ARMY by the Drill Sergeant --- !!
    PS -- The B&W scan I show HERE is NOT as GOOD as the one I entered -- this one was off my Flickr so I could reduce it down a bit and was done just after I got my HP Scanjet 4570 free and it scans dark tones too 'Grey' -- so now I got the hang of it better and did a better one from the 'TIFF File' stored in my HP Envym6

    Hi Pete,

    I saw in previous posts you may be able to develop some 120 film ? I'm on Canvey island and in desperate need of a reel to be developed ?

    Let me know if you can or have any other suggestions where I could possibly get this done.

    Many thanks,

    Freddie, sorry to but in, but in case Pete can't help, you may like to know that many branches of SnappySnaps can process 120 colour negative (C41 process) in the shop. Black & white & (I think - haven't used it myself) colour transparency (E6 process) they can do by sending it away.

    Have a look at their website for branches near you:


    The site was down when I looked just now, but hopefully will be working when you read this.

    Welcome to the forums, by the way!
