    I like it too. Nice warm colours.
    Indeed. Later today I'll be done with a test roll of Ektar 100. It's supposed to really saturate colors and is warm as well.

    Just got my first dslr a few months ago and still don't know what I'm doing. Here's an exciting cat photo: [​IMG]

    IC perhaps it's because your shot was outdoors and possibly a bit overexposed? Did you push or pull it at all? I was told not to shoot this stuff at anything other than the box ISO. Really weird things happen with the color if you do. I'll upload a couple of outdoor shots so you can compare yours to mine.

    Crane, no i left it on 400..mine was wayy more contrasty than yours. I shot it on an ae-1 w/ 50mm1.8 so maybe that had something to do with it? It's the first portra 400 roll I've ever shot.

    what do you recommend for outdoors shots?

    Hmmm, the toy plane was shot through glass. All the indoor pics were shot at f1.4 so the contrast should be less than say f4 which would be the middle of the sweet spot for my lens. also keep in mind they were also shot offhand on speeds as low as 1/30 of a second. I'm trying out Ektar 100 for outdoor stuff. The color should be deeply saturated with good contrast as well. I'll find out later when I finish off my test roll.
    The greens look bluish on my screen.
    That makes sense. This kind of outdoor light is very blue. I should have used a warming filter in that light to kill the blue casting. Hint for digital users. Set your WB to shade when shooting in this kind of light. You'll be glad you did.
