Digital vs Film #2

A few weeks ago, I did a comparison between digital and film shots, using an SLR and a rangefinder loaded with Kodak Tri-X, and a crop-sensor DSLR. Sadly, I had to return the Leica M6 to its generous owner, so this time it’s just a shootout between the DSLR and the SLR, the latter still using 400TX, but with portraits instead of architecture. Both shots were taken minutes apart, with almost identical settings, with the 50mm lens on the APS-C DSLR giving an equivalent focal length of 75mm to the SLR’s 35-70mm lens which I was using at its telephoto end. The digital image was shot as a RAW file and converted and edited in Camera RAW and touched up with Photoshop; the 35mm negative was scanned as a BMP file and then converted and edited in Photoshop. Please feel free to leave some feedback.
