Nice pics mate

but im affraid there not mutch to do...this is scanned right? There is alot of grain. You can try to remove it with a program called NeatImage, but the pic will the turn out as 'bad soft' so im affraid there is not mutch to do! What camera do you use? and if film what scanner?

I used a Nikon N65 with 28-200 lens.

The film I used was Fuji Superia Xtra 400.

The images were put onto a disk by Jessops in London. Since I could not open it on the university computers, I took it to Boots and transferred the images onto a Boots disk, which can be opened on the university computers.

That's very weird. Looking through your photos and I see that your Syrian 747 is credited to me at Manchester! I had a look at my rejected list and, sure enough, there is your photo. Don't know what's going on there - unless it could be that we have both had photos rejected with the same file name or something. I had previously noticed a few photos in my rejected list that were nothing to do with me.

I have to agree with Nick - the reproduction of the photos has left too much grain to sort out. Any attempt to get rid of the grain would leave an image that I can't image you could successfully sharpen up to standard.

But one last thought - I had Jessops put some photos on to a disc for me once and I looked at them at home and was very disappointed by the grain. What I hadn't realised was that there are 2 files on the Jessops CD containing the photos - one with low resolution images, and another one that has the full size photos. I had been looking at the low res images, not realising that the others were there too. If I can make that mistake then maybe others can as well. Could it be that you have been working on the poorer quality images as well, not knowing that there are a whole load of others on the CD? I hope so - you may be pleased.

All the best.

The local photooptix here uses an offsite Kodak lab for their processing, and a roll I sent a while ago (bog standard Gold 200 film) came back with very nice results.


I know this won't help you now, but it's certainly something to consider for future ouput, in the absence of a decent scanner.



It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

The only thing that could be tried is scan at a little large format. Then use a iso noise reducer like NeatImage. Afterwards you can downsize the image and for instance use NIK Sharpen or USM to sharpen it up a bit. I would give it a try with only one, see what happens before doing all. That is about the only thing I can think of.

Nice shots though, but the noise is killing.

Good luck,
