This is something I've only noticed recently- I scanned some very contrasty 
(excessively) XP2 negatives and in the scan I could see brownish areas like a 
halo around the black of the subject's hair. Once I worked out that these were 
the lightest areas of the negative I realised this is probably flare- I'm just 
not used to seeing it in reverse.
