Week #22 – Rollei Crossbird 200

Rollei Crossbird 200 (Rollei CR 200 with C-41 label)

And here’s the next batch of my long weekend trip. This time it’s a cross processed Rollei Crossbird 200. Turns out it’s just a Rollei Chrome/Digibase CR 200 with another label.

It was one hour before sunset and raining like mad. But Matthias, who organized the trip, looked at a weather app on his smart phone and said: “Let’s go!”. We drove through rain and rain and rain and everything was behind clouds. But after half an hour or so the world turned into magic. Faint red at the horizon, Clouds raining over forests, mist walking through the landscape. I was so happy, that we did leave the house and didn’t stay indoors. Thanks again!

Very low light, exposure times of 1+ second. Color all over the place. Photos were as much color corrected, as possible. The original scans were bright orange and nearly unusable – at least for my personal taste.
