Cao Dai Temple, Vietnam
Scenes in and around the Cao Dai Great Temple, in Tay Ninh, Vietnam. Shots taken with the wonderfully vivid Kodak Elite slide film during a fantastic three-week trip I made to Vietnam in 1997. The slides were scanned by Jessops, a high-street chain in the UK, and I must say I'm pleased with the results, even though the resolution is not particularly high. Considering these are slides from 15 years ago, they've lost almost nothing of their colour, contrast or punchy vibrance. That's testament to how fantastic the Elite Chrome film is, I guess.This photo was shot on film. Taken by buckshot with a Nikon F50 loaded with Kodak Elite Chrome 100 (EB-2) film in Tay Ninh, Viet Nam.
