I like a bit of contrast myself, but in this case it is too much for me. I like 
the picture of the girl more in this respect, the contrast there seems more 
natural. That one was taken on Agfa RSX. (A film I never had the oportunity to 
use.) 

I just wonder about the Fuji. I use Provia 100 and it is also contrasty but not 
so much. Well... some day maybe I test the new Fujis, but for now I have enough 
of the older types in the freezer.

It's not that I don't like it, it is just that it differs so much from how we 
see normally. (In fact I think it would be pretty ankward to see the world in 
such oversaturated colors as the images in magazines suggest it.)

I never used ASA400 as slide, but some day I will try the 400X.

Oh... stop, in one of my Rolleicords I have a Fuji 100-1000 that is exposed at 
400. In there for more than 5 years now, wondering what it will look once 
developed. ;-)
