What a Trip - Part #2

I finally had the roll of Tri-X, that I put through my Olympus Trip 35, developed and scanned (more about the camera here: "What a Trip - Part#1") - and here are some of the frames from that film.

For being a fairly 'modestly' equipped camera I think it performed very well.
The built-in non-battery dependent meter seemed to be spot-on in almost every frame and it was quite fun to guesstimate the focusing distance when taking photos. In essence 'all' that was left was to compose and snap photos.
I will absolutely bring one of my Trips out again in the very near future - and if you have 10-15 dollars to spare so can you :)

hey - I like the look of these. I have had great difficulty scanning BW films, even XP2. Any tricks you can suggest?

I have a fairly simple scanning setup/process.

I use an Epson 3200 flatbed scanner and Vuescan scanning software.

I tend to always scan on 1600 or 3200 dpi with two passes (setting in vuescan) that brings out a bit more details. I scan as b&w transparencies - and that's about it.

I use CS2 PS and apply sharpening, curves and brightness/contrast there. I also mix up and add a duotone as well before I save the final file.

That is strange. I could've sworn that I left a comment on this post. It was the third comment, asking about one of the pictures.

Rich, if you had deleted my comment, may I know what I've said that may have offended you?

If not, than could it be that the Blogger engine just kicked my comment out?

Hmmm... strange indeed.

Will, sorry I must have deleted your post by mistake when I was playing around with the moderation feature.
And yes, the photo is of our fellow RFF'er :)
