Here's some more flies. Taken yesterday - just me and my parrot sitting in the park capturing flies on film.

Hey I like a challenge and balancing a bird on the lens barrel while shooting flies at 1:1 was just the needed bit to make things a little more interesting.

I suspect these would pop more if you spent more time on resizing and sharpening. Have you tried Samuli's or Denoir's sharpening methods?

Are there guides?

Guide? Both Samuli and Denoir posted their sharpening methods in the ZE/ZF/ZM thread.

Thanks,

I'm using a Minolta Scan Dual IV and Vuescan for all my 35mm scans.

Thanks for the info. This scanner seems to be very good judging from the colors in your pics. I had the Nikon 5000 but wasn't happy with the colors, but it could've been my scanning method at fault.

Edward,
I never had a a Nikon 5000 but I didn't notice any color difference between the Dual Scan IV and the nikon 9000. I indeed do most of the scans with the minolta. Just need to keep my film clean.

Very nice photos by the way!!!

More probably it was simply profiling issues. Scanner profiles are a PITA to get right.
