    Great shot and awesome stock to pick. Not as much contrast as some other Retro rolls; it's nice.

    @clownshoes Thanks, this has become one of my favorite shots. The Rollei Retro 80 is challenging in this climate and season, what with the sky being almost constantly overcast. I try to squeeze as much contrast out of every shot as I can (but not more).

    True, true. I had bought some Bluefire police 80 iso. My judgement for films that slow is that they are great for close up flash; I have an album were I used Adox 25 and used a flash. Did you develop at home?

    No, it's lab-developed, home scanned. I'm sure you're right about the close-up flash for your police film...designed to compensate for flash tone, right? Apparently this retro 80 is near-infrared sensitive. I've been wanting to get a red filter and try it out, but I think I'll have to wait until the brighter, leafier time of year.
