Buvez Coca-Cola Glace'! ~ Film Version

Pentax K1000 ~ Fujicolor 400 Superia X-Tra ISO 400 ~ 50mm

 

I know you've already seen this, but I wanted you to see the film version too.

 

The digital version of this was cropped quite a bit more. This was due to curvature/distortion that occurs with a wider angle lens. I just didn't like the look of that in the digital version, so I straightened it as much as I could and cropped it.

 

My intention all along was to include what you see here in this film version; the grass, the vines on the building, the downspouts and the yellow flowers, (they tie in with the sign color). Personally, I find this shot more interesting. Also, the colors, (especially the red), are more true.

 

So there you have it. I think this demonstrates one of the benefits of a fixed, prime 50mm lens as well as the color and the look you get with film.

 

Your comments and thoughts are welcome....and thanks for following along!

 

P.S. Yes, I sometimes walk around with two cameras. People stare. What are you gonna do?
