    Thought these were TMax when I first looked at them…Silver Efex is a nifty program. I think these would of stood up to any processing though, really wonderful!

      Thanks Jordan!

      It is a very powerful program. I don’t use any of the specific film presets, but I do find the “color filter” option very useful. To be honest, SEPII is one of the main reasons I didn’t ultimately mesh with the Monochrom–it is much nicer to start with a color file for B&W conversion than an actual B&W one!

        I didnt use it when I had the MM. Those files really only need LR. I agree with you Mark best if colour channels are present.

    I like the top one best. I can’t believe she’s getting a haircut. Well, it has to be done eventually!

    My first reaction was that these don’t look as good as Eastman 5222. Well, now I know why. ๐Ÿ™‚ Nothing wrong with these, but they don’t quite look as good as the film shots.

    I enjoy these very much, seeing the seriousness of the occasion on your daughter’s face. I can see that your talking was not a distraction.

    It reminds me when we took our oldest boys for their first haircut. They were bald until 2 so they were closer to 5 when we cut their hair.

    Alas, I have only memories, but I have taken lots of pictures of them since and I like shooting in hairdressers as the mirrors give nice lighting (at least in South Africa anyway where we are blessed with lots of light but itโ€™s often harsh outside).

      I didn’t say that very well. I meant that your talking could easily be a distraction when one is concentrating on their first haircut.
