These were taken using Velvia colour slide film that was cross-processed, but the lab did such a poor job of scanning them that they looked really fake and unrealistic, like something you'd get with an Instagram effect, so I completely desaturated them in Photoshop (i.e. made them greyscale) to at least bring back some of the detail. It was a local lab that I suspect has not done many x-pro scans before. If I ever get a scanner myself I may try to do a better job and republish them in colour the way they were intended to be. The original lab-scan version is here:
