    The 60s were very blue.

    I forgot to mention that I copied these slides today with my Sony A57 using a Minolta 50mm f3.5 Macro. I used a homemade stage for the task.

    Pixmedic, BLUE: always a pesky problem with Pacific Ocean water.

    Do you remember if those were all done with the 50mm, or did you have the other lenses along with you on that trip?

    They were taken with either the 50 or the 35. It's hard to remember 57 years later. I was living in Honolulu and working as a tech rep at Hickam A.F.B. during that period of my life.

    Are you sure those are Kodachrome slides? I've never seen such an intense color shift on Kodachrome, even the oldest slides from the 1930s-40s. Looks more like Ektachrome to me.

    Those were definitely taken with Kodachrome 10. I was using my white monitor screen for the backlight source. Maybe I could have made the shots warmer in post-processing. I'll try to reshoot a couple with pure sunlight and see if there is less blue domination. Thanks for the reply. By the way, I like that Vitessa; always wanted one.

    The slide copiers that Nikon make work very well with sunlight (pointed to a blue sky).

    Here is my slide copier. It's the new SONY "Red Neck Edition". Might be less expensive than the Nikon. DSC00009.JPG
