Re: Strange color negatives among good ones

I'll guess that you are looking for some more sharpness in order to get the print size that you want. I see the scanning as the limitation here. Remember to put the duller emulsion side down, to use a negative holder, and to limit the scan to the negative frames. Undo the resulting mirror image in post processing.

In post processing, I would pull down the blue curve in the midrange and shadows . In the midrange, a relative boost of red and reduction of blue generally seems needed. And that is only the first of the nonlinearities to be dealt with. But sharpness, blue shadows, blue midrange and red midrange are the only remaining adjustments for this photograph.
