    Hello! I just picked up my test photo's from the lab. On some of them i see something what reminds me a some kind of haze or fogg (see attachment). Scanner is d-lab2/3 made by AgfaPhoto GmbH. This is a problem with scanner, camera, lens (it has UV Marumi filter attached) or what? Please help me :smile: Thank You.

    Looked like it was a hazy/foggy day. Was it not?

    It does look to me like the sort of response one gets when there is a lot of UV sensitive haze in the distance.

    How long a lens were you using, on what format?
    I ask because if this was shot from a long distance, UV haze effects are greatly emphasized.

    The green looks over saturated. What film? I've seen light haze show up more prominent in the scan/photo than it appeared to the eye at the time.
    Can you post a picture of the negative, not a scan inverted?

    What camera or meter and metering method was used? Is the camera's meter known to be reliable?
    Given the vast amounts of sky, I think your camera meter made everything darker. This is the case when the large majority of the scene is brightest, that then becomes "middle gray" and therefore everything else becomes darker relative to that reference.

    It looks like you can use a UV filter or Skylight filter.

    With very little post work, it is very easy to adjust underexposure.
    If you are good with reading a color negative, you might be able to tell if the frame of film itself was underexposed or perhaps it was the scanner's autoexposure that underexposed for the same reason.

    I looked at other frames and each of them has a delicate fog that disappears when I raise up the exposure.
