    Wow, love them deep blacks! He'd better hurry, as those horses behind him are really moving!

    That's really beautiful!!! What is RNI? I also saw that Kodachrome beach shot which I liked a lot. I think the VSCO is sort of heavy handed. I do have a bit of condrum. I refuse to pay the monthly fee to Adobe so I got Capture One. Unfortunately I have not been in the mood to learn a new software so it has curtailed my use the 50R until I get more motivated. Taking care of my 81 year old Dad has been way more work than I anticipated. Anyway, great photo and any info on RNI would be appreciated.

    Thanks Rob - he earned his stripes, that's all I'll say! :D
    Thanks Steve - sorry to hear about your Dad. Hope you're doing ok.

    RNI stands for Really Nice Images they produce a pro pack of really nice film sims - and with VSCO giving up the game on the computer side, I've turned to RNI along with Mastin Labs for my film sims. RNI do packs for LR/PS and C1, so you can go either direction.

    I think RNI gets more of the vibe of a retro film, others can be a bit OTT I think. The Pro pack includes:

    Thanks Chris!!! That is a nice B/W. Much better than anything in VSCO. I have been shooting some Pan F on C330 the last few weeks. I am going to look into this for C1. I am not good with computers so I get frustrated really easily when I can't find something in the program. Eventually I will get it down.

    It has been a struggle with Dad. He's 81 and doesn't want to be old and have mobility problems, neither of which I can do much about. It's either living with me or Assisted Care. We haven't always gotten along but it's just something I need to do.
