    Shot on a Bronica ETRSi, 75mm f2.8. Film was Fp4+ developed in ID-11. Scanned with Epson V750

    Quite compulsive. I rate this, if there is any nit-picking to be done I'll let somebody else do it, except that it should be Skinhead as there is only one:).

    Nice. Made me go look up the camera which I hadn't heard of. I'm a novice and I'm curious to know if more experienced posters are able to recognize features of the photograph that distinguish it from a conversion produced by DSLR.

    It's a tonality thing, running smoothly from virtually white to virtually deep black and if you enlarge it you can see the film grain, although the use of a medium format camera does reduce this by comparison with 35mm.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Very nice and atmospheric. A real Taylor Wessing.

    I'd personally go further with pp to really get the simplification of mono:

    Nice one! That's got a really 'timeless' feel to it so it gets a thumbs-up from me. It certainly looks like you've got the measure of the Bronica.

    Cheers, Jeff

    Really like that. The eye contact is nice too

    I keep coming back to this. I liked it as soon as I saw it and I like it more and more each time I look at it. I think cropping the top off above the sign is a slight improvement but not essential. Well done.
    I like the other skinhead photo on your site too.

    Really like that. Always nice to see some film stuff. Mike's edit maybe pushes the blacks a touch too far for me, but like the crop.

    Definitely a touch of the Taylor-Wessing about it - except it's probably more interesting...;)

    Mike's version just takes it for me.
