    This picture reminds me of those movies that tell stories about bad things happening in some remote, ugly, treeless and colorless place. you look afar, yet, you see nothing, and that doesn’t abode well.

    Like a thriller movie. 🙂

  4. I like the result of this(image) being cross-processed. A sea full of blood – a vampire’s favorite! =)

  5. C.A. – I never thought of it that way, but I do see what you mean. Thanks. 🙂

    Metal – Yes, this particular film reacts pretty wildly to being cross-processed. I kind of like the results. 🙂

    Very nice! How do you scan your x-pro slides with the v500? Care to share?

    • Well, the slides come back as negatives, so I just scan them as negatives. Pretty simple. Of course, the V500 kills a lot of the contrast, so you have to account for that in post-processing.

        Hmm.. I scan my xpro-ed slides at the shop (fuji frontier minilab machine) but when I scan them as negatives, the colour is totally different from the lab scans! The only way to get the same output is to scan them as positives, and invert the colours in photoshop, but the result is still a flat, low-contrast image which needs some correction, which also means I need a lab scan to match the colours too.. =(

  9. The machine must be overcompensating with color correction. There should be some way to turn off the auto settings. That’s what they do at the lab; they’ve scanned enough x-proed film to know what they need to scan for.

    As I said before, the scanner I use KILLS contrast, which means I have to fix that later.
