With lights sparkling, this 757 heads for the runway on a late night flight out of Logan Airport.

I am stunned by the pinpoint sharpness and clarity. Judging by the date, would this be a scan from a print or slide? In which case, the clarity is even more astonishing!

Actually this image was scanned from a negative. Kodak 120 film is almost 4 times larger then 35mm and can produce excellent resolution and detail. Long before digital the Pentax 6x7 medium format camera was the workhorse of serious photographers who needed to make big enlargements. Only 20 megapixel cameras or more (like the Canon 5D Mark 2) can equal the quality of 120 film. A tripod mount and small aperature combined with a long exposure, produced the starlike pinpoint sharpness that you see on the wingtips of this 757.
