    My buddy coaches/runs a local highschool rugby team and wanted me to take some pictures for their website. I still don't have my DSLR so I busted out the ol' film SLR (Nikon N65) and all of these were shot with a Nikkor 70-300mm. These are just a few out of the bunch that turned out okay. Some have more noise than others, I got them developed at Walgreens and put on a CD. Only post I did was messing with the levels and cropping. They're the blue/red ones.

    what are you resizing with? what lens are you using? the pictures are cool, but could be a lot more sharp.

    edit: nevermind, I read the post.

    I don't know why some of these are so much noisier than others. I was shooting in aperature priority on ISO 800 film. :dunno: Here are a couple 100% crops with only levels. They're both pretty noisy, but the 1st one is pretty bad.

    That's what I was thinking, I can't imagine why they're so noisy. Shooting on 800 (all I had) I expected a little noise but nothing this bad. :hs:

    its the scanner. walgreens ftl. the amount of film grain is normal [i shoot 800 speed film all the time and that looks normal] but the scanner they used sucks!

    also, scanned negs need a lot of unsharp mask [or equiv] to get your digital like sharpness. even high end scanners still need it.
