Since you know it was a fault...
In reply to Lumixdude, 9 months ago

I posted a Velvia conversion using Exposure here and deliberately left the green cast in the shadows, which is a fault of the film. I got picked up on it, but I did it in order to reproduce that Velvia look.

Why reproduce a fault with the film when you know it is?

I was a photographic technician in one of my past lives - and our job was to MINIMISE known faults, not reproduce them. I came across the green shadows with Ektachrome duplicating film, and the cause was insufficient concentration in the first stop bath. Kodak headed our advice, and the week after their Ektachrome duplicate samples in their show case had black shadows as well.
