today i was re-scanning some negatives to be able to offer best quality for prints i want to print myself or make avaiable at deviantart. this time i was adjusting colour balance and brightness/contrast before scanning the neg in a preview-scan. see the difference yourself, it may seem little but helps a lot the mood and aesthetics in my eyes. all these images seemed flawless to me before actually starting to work on them on the pre-scan. nobody has ever mentioned any tints of colours but when you see them compared it seems obvious that there was a small but visible mistake in colour or contrasts.

dude. i sooooo admire the way you work that leica.

just got an M6 and every shutter i trigger i think of you.

in a non-gay-loving way.

colour, even moreso than bw, is so subjective. even if you tried doing them again next week you could come up with something different. also if you were looking at them on paper rather than on screen you could find a different result too.

but anyway, they are looking good.

You've done a good job! Being a perfectionist about colours and contrast is a real pain in the ass, but it's worthwhile when you get to the end result.

Great photos man, keep it coming!

warum scannst du nicht einfach 16bit raw und behältst dir diese auch?

ist zwar etwas zeitaufwändiger wegen der bearbeitung aber man hat immer zugriff auf das original-bild, direkt aus dem scanner...

ist nicht so blaustichig wie die alten scans
