The grocer.

For anyone in doubt about film having a different look from digital, look carefully at this image.

Noteworthy observations: the colours, the tonality.  There are other differences that I’ve never been able to put my finger on — call it the “je ne sais quoi” factor.

As an aside, I’ve always found that the Voigtländer Nokton 40mm, the lens used to capture this image, performs exceptionally well on film.

    One hue I truly like on film is the green — richer; and not over saturated.

    I’ve noticed that when I shoot film I do not get the blown out highlights from light sources like I do with digital.
