This is an old photo I scanned. I spent a day in the city of Tours (population of about 300,000) in France, back in 2001.
This was shot on my old Pentax point and shoot film camera. The vignetting is due to damage to the film and the print, which I scanned from the 4x6.
I am unsure of what this beautiful old edifice is, if someone knows..please let me know too...:)
I found Tours to be great to wander, it felt very 'French' (of course!) and I was amazed to see so many older edifices restored so well, after the city was flattened in WWII.
Despite the lack of quality in the shot, there is something I love about the tone and colour of film I can't match on my digital cameras.

they say to match the tones and the resolution with a digital camera a sensor size of atleast 35mega pixels is needed so that all the information can be recorded..really a very good photo, you could never get these tones with a normal 1000$ digital camera, it would still look plastic using the sharpening algorithms..(camera or during pp)..
still not sure why you crop, leave it in the original form, this is not 4/6 ! :)..nice post anyway, weekend finally..

You know what ? I lived in Tours during 8 years, when I was student. A nice town, with a lot of cultural events.
This edifice is the "musée des beaux arts", near the gothic cathedral.On the right we can see a part of the huge tree which stands in front of the museum.I remember that there're there some interesting paintings of Poussin and one Rembrandt.
Funny for me to see this picture this evening.
