Recent shoot with Jenni Kournokova. Used film for this image I like the result. What do you think?

Thanks Steve-

Film is time intensive and requires much clean-up from every scan to get them digitized. I keep wondering if its worth the effort? But every now and then I get results that seem worth the effort. However I really hate the way these images seem to display so differently on an LCD monitor. I process everything on an older CRT monitor and even that feels out of whack with current LCD displays. Colors always seem much better as does contrast on the CRT. I am looking now at the image with an LCD at 800:1 contrast and it sure doesn't seem as good! Thanks for taking the time to stop and comment though, much appreciated.

I love your image. I'm just not sure how long it is going to take me to "use up" the film in my fridge. Since I bought the D200, my F100 and F5 get very little use. Someday i'll have still images, or real models to shoot, and the film will not go so much to waste. I'll probably be long eead before I have a subject like this to shoot.
