Fall Colors - Morton Arboretum

I spent a good hour at Lake Marmo and the Millennium Oaks area at the Morton Arboretum and captured the changing lighting conditions until after sunset. The colors turned out amazing!

I chose to use E-6 processing by PJ's Camera instead of my usual C-41 for more natural colors.Pictures with the Holga were underexposed and had to be corrected more than the pics from the LC-A.

    Cool! And really glad you processed these as intended - great films like Ektachrome and Velvia should never be x-pro'd, dontcha think...?

    The image glows with the intensity of the colors. Great shot! I should try processing my slides in E-6 sometime :)

    @aoizumi Yes try E-6 sometime! There are fewer and fewer labs that will do it but it's worth it!

    @buckshot I think processing slide film with E-6 and C-41 both have their merits. I've recently been shooting slides and developing in E-6 and the colors are great!
