Do you have some examples you could post ?

What shutter speed, aperture, ISO did you use ?

Thank you.

Yes. The following pictures show the typical issue I have when converting landscapes.

Was the print done at the same time as the negative was developed ? The negative seems to be very magenta, as if the dyes have faded at different rates.

Thank you.

Yes, the print was done at the same time as the negative was developed. But the development was delayed about 10 days after shooting. The film was in the camera for about 20 days until I got to Sydney, Australia.

So both the print and negative are around 25 yrs old ?   It’s possible that the colours have shifted on the negative.  For your macro shot where the colours are better would you have the original pre-inversion camera scan of that negative ? Is it as magenta as this one or is it more orange ?
