Bora Bora Sunset
Bora Bora Sunset

Above is my most popular picture on Flickr as of today (12th Oct 2011) and it has been for a while. This was a sunset shot taken in Bora-Bora (French Polynesia) in may 1996 on the last day of our honeymoon and we were bitten to death by mosquitoes.

On a technical note, this was shot with a Nikon F3 and 35-70mm F3.5 AI-Pro on a Kodak Gold 100-4, scanned on flatbed scanner Epson v500 at 4800 Dpi.

The picture is not bad, but still it is surprising that 15 years later, with a lot better photographic gear and more experience this pops up at the first place of my most popular pictures. Actually if you look at the link to my most popular pics you will see that on the top 10 only two where taken by a DSLR, 8 are film and two have been taken with the Dacora Digna which is not known for its quality.

One answer : film rules!
