Thank you, Pan, it can be a Gypsy, I made that one in 1973 in the south of Spain, Ronda, now a tourist trap, but then still like it used to be in the times of Hemingway.

Very well done! Looks great, Kostja. I love the tonality and the sharpness, but the subject and the composition too.

Thank you, I print photographs since I was 13 and now I am 65, so maybe I've learned something!


Scanning prints is a profession in itself.

Hi Erik,
Please keep posting your tech info with each of your photos! It's of great interest to me and I'm sure, to others, to keep track of the cameras, lenses, film, etc combinations that you use for each of your wonderful photographs!

Thank you for all your sharing,

My scans always look less sharp than the original prints. When I enhance the "sharpness" in Photoshop, I usually get a white line around dark areas. Is this due to the quality of the scanner?

i use a "street find" Canonscan with everything in box!
Sadly scans are NOT projection prints..
I too have noticed weird bits near blacks and blown away highlights..
The scanner sees as a dumb robot..mine is certifiable!
but it's an easy but long and tedious time requirement,
for small digital files.

My local community center has a wet darkroom with 6 enlargers and stop/fixer. All you need to bring is paper and developer. I think I should check that out! When I was a teenager, I did a lot of darkroom work and miss it.

Your scanner might be slightly out of focus. Did you calibrate the focus by making a series of scans where you shim your negatives?

I used to scan my negatives, they were always OK; now I only scan my prints. This one is OK, but I had problems with the ones last week. Maybe the pictures were not sharp enough or the (very old) camera needs shimming.
