    Taken with my Leica IIIc, 50mm lens, no meter, on Kodak Elite Chrome 100. Processed at the local Rite Aide and scanned to CD there. No post-processing, which might explain some of the blown-outness.

    yes I think that it is easy to fix I get it all the time and prefer to go back to a closer real color ... when I can.

    Agreed. What managed to look so "retro" with the Velvia is falling a bit flat here. There is too much of the greenish/cyan cast for my taste with this series.

    Worth the experiment, of course, just so you know what you'll get. :)

    What causes the greenish tint? the base color of the negatives is pinkish/magenta, so shouldn't that give everything a pink hue? The base color of the Velvia is a green...I don't get it.
