  1. Very interesting treatment. There is something almost eerie with how the white stripes disappear into the high key background.

  2. I like this one very much, too — I agree with edvatza about the eeriness… the image really is dream-like and shimmery and the flag looks like it is half air. Cool!

    Wow, very shiny! The melding of the white stripes with the background is really cool.

  4. Ed – That’s the thing about cross-processing slide film – lots of extra contrast. Thanks.

    Dee – Thanks. 🙂

    Dragon – As always, I really appreciate your kind comments.

  7. Because I apparently use the Internet like most people’s grandfathers, I didn’t realize your comments had a link to your blog until about fifteen seconds ago. I see you finally tried cross-processing- these are really excellent. Isn’t it fun how different films have entirely different characteristics when cross-processed? I can’t say I was a huge fan of the Sensia 200 I ran about two weeks ago (nor the lens I shot it through), but I’ve had great results with Elite Chrome. Thank you for your comments- I appreciate it.

  9. Anthony – Elite Chrome 100 is by far my favorite film to cross-process. Aquamarine heaven. Sensia can be a bit strange in C-41. Ever cross-processed Velvia? It’s really cool. I also love Astia. It comes out red, very red – Marsian Kool-Aid red.

    Metal – Yeah, if there were some dark vignetting, it would definitely look like a Lomo image. Ever shot a Lomo? The LC-A is actually a sharp little camera.
