      interesting. Small preference to the film image though. probably due to the soft rendering of the MF film, that gives nice gradient tones in light transition (e.g. in the clothes of people)

      I was looking through my favorites to find a new photo for my desktop, after 20 pages or so i chose yours. Now I cant stop staring at it, it's so gorgeous, specially viewed large. I got into medium formats a few months ago, and having shot high contrast shots like this, I am really amazed at the way the levels work with each other without being overexposed. The bamboo exposed, even the skin on the people is so well exposed without being all silhouette.
      I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate this kind of art work, thanks!

      ps. how do you meter? did you purposefully underexpose, or anything else?

      Hi Diego, thank you for your nice comment.
      For this picture i've been a bit lucky. All the museum is bathed into the same light, so i've metered once for all the pics I took. But when i arrived there, i've been afraid to see the persons move in a second so i hurried and shot after choosing to underexpose of one stop. Despite of the low light I've been still enought not to blur it.
      Second, there is a dark well in front of all the windows, so the light from outside isn't as strong as it should be. It helped to avoid too strong contrasts between outside and inside. ;-)
      I'm not professionnal so i go to the feeling often for exposure and then cross fingers and hope than i did right. I use a old hand lightmeter.
