I shot this in June 2002 on what ultimately turned out to be a 23 hour day. It was shot on color negative film, and finally scanned tonight on a film scanner I recently picked up. I can see many hours ahead of me scanning years worth of film, but this had to be one of the first I scanned. Cape Lookout has always been my favorite light, but I couldn't have hoped for those clouds in my wildest dreams.

That's a great shot, Rob !! As for spending hours behind the scanner, you're right there. I still have tons of family pictures, old vacation shots, etc. that I need to scan, and I've had this scanner for 5 years. But it is fun to be able to get them all digitized.

One thing that comes in handy when scanning old negative film is a program called Neat Image. It removes grain from image files, and does a great job of it. Paint Shop Pro 9 and later have a built in feature that's similar, but since I've been using neat image for a year or two I've come to like it better than the PSP command.
