    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Like that. Is the sepia effect intentional?

    No. I used NX2 until I changed computer. NX2 would not read mono nef files produced by my Nikon scanner. I scanned mono negs in colour and converted to mono in NX2. I now use NX-D which has no conversion from colour to mono, but it does read mono scans.

    I'm not sure I understand. The sepia effect is then an unintentional consequence of your conversion from colour to mono or an unintentional colour rendition of a mono scan? It definitely looks as if a tint has been applied.

    It was processed as colour from a colour scan of a mono neg. However on my screen and the print on my desk it looks mono, in fact not as warm as bromesco.

    On my screen it looks deliberately tinted. I downloaded (will now delete) the jpg and dropped it into On1 Photo Raw 2018 and the histogram shows red > green > blue. Curious, I'd have expected the scanner to return a neutral effect. The result is pleasing and actually looks more natural for the marbled finish stone than a pure grey would.
