After the carwash
Maybe you have the DR set, I found out that the velvia and DR would make the shadows a bit too much for some reason (one would expect oposite)
But I like the velvia colors, even more since anything printed in the big chain stores still look like s* t. Even if you put screaming colors, what you get printed back is some muddy puddle.
I like velvia, but I think the camera doesn't really produce velvia. probably it is better just to stay at std / provia instead (or raw). i made a couple of actions in photoshop that do saturation and contrast adjustments so it looks more like velvia.
i was just playing around and compared a few shots. the biggest issue i see with out of the camera velvia is the shadows, details are lost in there.-- hide signature --
