Default 1968 Nikkormat FTn still kicking

I took these with an old Nikkor mat FTn and a Nikkor 50 f2. The meter was funky so I used the sunny day rule and some cheap Walgreen's 200 ISO Color print film and a Walgreen's scan.

I had a good day with the Mat!

Nice captures! I like #2 the best, it has really nice colors! I love that the terrain closest to you still has a significant amount of detail that can be brightened up!

I like it a lot, gorgeous clouds!

Oh, and did you have to PP the scans they gave you? Whenever I get my film scanned at the pharmacy here I have to do a significant amount of PP work on them before they look halfway decent. The contrast is always WAY off and the film almost always has a blue tint to it. I know yellowish coating on negative film will often leave a blue tint when you invert the colors, but it doesn't make sense to me that half of my photos will have that tint and the others the colors will be fine (with contrast, brightness and saturation still significantly off.) Maybe my lab just sucks, haha!

No I really didn't do any post processing just to resize for the web. This was essentially the walgreen's scan but I do know the Fuji Frontier machine does some PP when it scan the negatives.

Thanks for the kind words.

Jim
