Yeah, nice shots. I don't know if anyone else agrees but there is something about butterfly wings that gives the optical illusion that they are not quite in focus, even though they are. Its something to do with the pattern and texture of the wing but I keep thinking my own butterfly shots look a bit iffy.

I think it is the fine hairs or "scales" that gives the impression of "out of focus"...it's just a soft, powder-like texture.

It certainly helps if you happen upon a dead one. Would never kill a butterfly for a photograph but unfortunately it's the only way I can get shots like this. Even when the wing is laying flat, the scales are not.

So I went down to my local restaurant with my medium format TLR and a roll of b&w film to get an atmospheric long exposure on a wet night with the restaurant lights reflecting on the wet road. Unfortunately the place is closed midweek because of Covid and the lights were off. Luckily I had taken my 6D with me to use for metering (My Yashica TLR doesn't have functioning metering).

Its not a wow shot but I don't think its too bad for ISO 12800. The 6D is still great for that sort of thing. Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art @f/2.8, 1/60 sec handheld.

This shot was made in *almost* total darkness. I could barely make out the form of my artist buddy as we set in his shed solving all the world's problems. The only lighting was late twilight coming in through a small window at camera right. A handheld "shot in the dark". The image is grainy but it's also at ISO 25600. ;-)a

But as a pedantic die hard film shooter..... there is a difference between proper film grain and digital noise. Digital noise is fairly standard across cameras and sensors in my opinion but film grain varies quite a lot dependant on the film type, exposure deviation (pushing or pulling), film developer used, development time and agitation regime. I think film grain looks a lot better than digital noise, but I'm biased. Film grain can be, and usually is, pleasing to the eye but just like digital noise, it can be overdone to the point where it becomes offensive.

I agree Vendee. I think any creative modifications can be taken to an extreme where they hurt image quality. Sometimes exaggeration works, sometimes it don't. ;-)a

The funghi season is almost here again and I'll probably be tramping through our local woods looking for exotic and brightly coloured fungus but this little fella popped up in my garden yesterday so I thought I'd better photograph it before I got my lawnmower out :lol:

I don't like any digital grain aside from what I have gotten with my Fuji (X100F). It's actually something you can use.

I must admit that I will try and clean up excessive digital noise in Photoshop. With film its almost the opposite. There a a couple of films, Kodak Tmax 100 & 400 that have such a fine grain, they almost look digital and I don't often use those these days. On the other hand, if you use a film with moderate grain.... something like Kodak Tri-x 400 and push it to 3200 and beyond, the grain can be really horrible, especially if you you chose the wrong type of film developer.

I wouldn't say the grain is horrible, but it really depends on the look you're going for. I have Tmax 100 in a 35mm camera, and Tmax 400 in a Hasselblad I am currently borrowing.
With that being said, I always try to eliminate the noise from my 6D. I will sometimes add more grain to the Fuji images. Something to do with the layout of the pixels or something - I am far from technical.
I'm not afraid of grain, but I hate digital noise. :lol:
