Good capture Scott! Totally digging the deep blacks and overall tonal range of this. Proves why film is still relevant.

i think it would be interesting if you took the same shot with a film camera and then a digital one...

Hmmm.... That's an interesting proposition Gina. Would I shoot the same lens on each body, ie: 50mm f/1.8? Same ISO/settings? Or let the camera float on it's own solution?

And then what to do with the other 23 shots? :ponder:

I'm more astonished at the very natural color balance. Those sodium vapors are a bear to "fix". Good work!
