I don't know why you say 'sadly neg film' - the result is stunning. The reflection of the mountain range is better than the 'real' thing. And I just love the mist lying over the valley in the centre of the picture.

the reason for not liking neg film was that when ever I was forced to use it, fuzzy, low contrast prints were returned from the labs that processed the film. It didn't matter who did the work, the results were always rubbish! However, my slides always came out sharp. my conclusion is that negative film is made for people who can't use cameras or who use poor quality cameras because it allows more exposure lattitude... you never saw slide film for instamatics
