    A few shots from when I was back in Nebraska two weeks ago. Kodachome 64 shot with a Pentax K1000. I was captivated by this fence line and this abandoned farmstead for some reason. :)

    C & C welcome.

    Is that film renowned for its magenta cast? Or was it no longer new?
    I find that cast quite prominent. I am not sure the colour of the grass and of the wood is represented in the way it was. But that may also be the charme this film has for you? I don't know...

    Flat countryside and fences - looks like home :D.

    I like the idea and see where your coming from, the colours could be stronger and the image sharper, but still good shots to capture...

    These don't really scream Kodachrome to me, I'd normally expect rather more saturated colours - if you'd have said Ektachrome, I wouldn't have argued.

    Yeah...I'm with everyone else. I like the photos, but something seems to be lacking in the color category. Perhaps black & white would be a better choice??

    I like the composition though...I shot something very similar in Italy:

    I sent a roll of Ektachrome off to be processed last weekend that I think has a few similar shots. I'll post those once I get it back.

    The colors are a bit muted; however Nebraska in the fall isn't really known for bright colors. To answer your question, Corinna, the colors are fairly well represented as I recall from the day. But I'll compare to the Ektachrome and see.

    Thanks for the comments!
