    This is really cool man. Nicely done.

    Why didn't you bring me with me my friend, this is superb.

    Just got back from the Photo Club in Almere, where they rated this one as too yellow, there were no people in it and it was probably not sharp enough. I should do something about the white balance someone said and the sensor noise was really bad ;-).
    They will never get it.....

    And Carsten: It is not so much the theme but the perspective, the weird colors and the bokeh.... I have the XA often with me, but not always. Right now I am using the Yashica Electro again. Just too big for the supermarket.
  • y.meessen 6y

    nice tones!
  • CVerwaal 6y

    I like the yellowish effect actually. Makes it look very "vintage"
  • Colourful Life (On vacation) 6y

    Great ! The tone is quite nice, and I like how you compose the picture !
    wow, expired film ! This one rocks !

    Een mooie diepte in dit shopping circuit.

    Ahh Kees, of course I know that you don´t speak about the scene. :))) But what exactly do you mean with too yellow? I really hope you don´t do any WB after scanning. :D The tint is the charme of those expired ones. This 15 years old film in combination with the fluorescent lamp gives a wonderful dirty light. Suits the situation perfect I think. And they say no people? Supermarkets WITH people in it knows everyone but so... :D Nanana, I stick to it, this shot is perfect as it is. And hey, the Electro is too big??? Hehehehe. You´re joking around again. Hahaha.

    Ooh, this is very nice. Love that green look under the fluorescent lights. Beautiful.
  • Trish Mayo 6y

    Love the perspective on this and the greens and yellows

    Prachtige plaat. Strakke compositie, die het idee goed naar voren brengt, ik vind het tasje met opvouw krat aan de kar een prachtig detail. Hij had van mij wel een tikkie lichter mogen zijn. Maar heel mooi!
  • David Kane 6y

    It's unusual - very unusual!
  • alexstrohl.com 6y

    Yeah i definitely love that!
  • Fogel's Focus 5y

    I stumbled upon this as a favorite of another Flickr user. I feel like you are nudging my XA out of retirement in favor of my corral of p/s film cameras that I always seem to carry.

    I love this shot. Supermarket shots have been a personal challenge of mine that I regularly fail. This is sharp where it should be and out of focus in just the right places.
