Here's a few from a roll of Boots' slide film I put through the Super A last month. Four of us went up Cleeve Common outside Cheltenham to watch the sun set over the Malverns. It was a good one, and I was very happy with the results - though if anything I feel like I could have made even more from the light if I had more experience with film.

The obligatory cliche:

The arse eclipse shot is great - I'd crop the bootm and left a bit though.

LOL

I completely missed that pun

... mind you I managed to spell 'arse' properly, but really messed up 'bottom' and typed it as 'bootm'

Boots slide film? How old was that and was it very much out fo date? It must have been kept in a fridge for years and now you've got marvellous results with this old film.
The view of the Malverns from the Cotswolds or the Cotswolds from the Malverns; The Eden Valley from the top of Stainmoor on the Co. Durham/ Cumbria border and the view into the Scottish Borders from Northumberland at Carter Bar have got to be my absolute favourite views in England and Southern Scortland.

Thanks all. Yeah, I can see where a slightly tighter crop would help.

The film is in date - some Boots still have process paid slide film for about 8. It's on the 3 for 2 deal too, so works out about 6 per roll including postage and development. Great deal, especially since it seems to be Fujian film and gives such nice results.

This is photography as it should be, what you see is what you get! Non of this faffing about in Photoshop to put your errors right or to change nature!

Well done.
