Here is the Film version of Vancouver Harbour.
When I shoot both digital and film, on the same scene, my hope is to keep the film version and only used digital to have a first look, on the spot.
Sometimes the digital version turns out better than film and this is usually when I did something wrong, like a bag setting.
In this case, composition is better, getting rid of the blue corner. This is because the Sigma lens on digital was wider and I agree I should have cropped it, but my reason for posting both, was to show the difference in the red tone.
I tried to balance colours so both pictures are equal, but no matter how I adjust them, the red on digital always turns out more orange.
Blue, as we can see is no problem and the skies are very similar.
I used here a Mamiya 645ProTL with a 35mm lens and Fuji Pro 160 ISO negative film. A film usually very good to reproduce colours with fidelity.

Very fine small lighthouse. Amazing seascape and mountains. Wonderful ships. Good point of view and composition. Original picture.

You and that damn film camera again, bloody hell, am I destined to eat my words forever.
Lovely work, excellent perspective and composition.
Yes, yes, yes, the red looks much better coming from the film, bugger. :)))
