I came across this free DNG recipe which I really like

I found a free DNG recipe dating from 2009 which claims to mimic the colour balance of Kodachrome 25 film. Whether it fully competes with Kodachrome or not, it definitely improves the appearance of my RAW files a lot:

There are two recipes in the zip file, one for Kodachrome 25 and the other for Kodachrome 60. I don't see much improvement in my photos with the 60 one but maybe I just haven't implemented it correctly.

Here are a handful of photos that I took in 2019 (the date stamps say 2018 but are wrong) which I've just retouched with the profile I created from the recipe (I also played with the highlights/shadows and exposure/contrast as well):

I thought it would be good to share this with others here if they're not already aware of this recipe.
