    I have become a bit of a film nut recently and have been shooting some medium format (120) film in a little lomo camera I got for my birthday last year.

    I have recently moved into colour film and doing my own home developing. My digital use of aperture isn't that great and I was wondering if you could offer some tips.

    After processing the negatives I scan them in using a canoscan 8800f in the highest quality format at 2400dpi

    I then use aperture to really pull out the contrast and colours to my liking.

    Below is an example of a before and after shot. I was wondering what everyone thought of the new version and whether anyone had a different point of view on my changes?

    Thanks

    I like your second photo better. The first one seems to be saturated/vibrant enough to lose the "nostalgic" appeal of a film shot.
