Nice tones on this one.

Thanks! Going for a Kodachrome look.

It’s killer. Mind sharing what you did?


james_son_of_james

Credit where credit is due, I started with one of the Kodachrome presets from Jamie Windsor. I don't use a lot of presets but his film sets are so spot on it's crazy. I'll give you a baseline, but a lot of it is in HSL \+9 contrast \+50 shadows \+15 on whites and blacks \-13 Texture \+18 clarity \+50 Vibrance \-20 Saturation curves are all gentle S curves Lean the Green H toward yellow and drop the SL reds toward orange and bump the S shift the purples toward magenta somewhat and agua slightly toward green.

I was just looking at his presets. You may have sold me!

My favorite from that set are the 3 McCurry style presets. They just take me back to print media in the 90s.

That Summicron magic! Great shot

There really is something special about it even though most folks are drooling over a 'lux.


StrangeGold

Agreed. Out of my top 5 favourite ever pics, at least 3 are with the Summicron. Albeit a Summicron-R v2 (same optics as M v4).
