I strive to be as pure as possible when it comes to photography; maintaining the color rendering how I saw it (digital), or how it's supposed to be rendered on a particular film stock. Here is a case where I made a pretty extreme color adjustment in Lightroom of C-41 cross-processed Lomography X-Pro 200, rendering it as if was processed in its native E-6 chemistry. The film came out with a strong green cast and blown-out highlights when it was cross-processed; swipe to second image. I moved the tint slider +80, and the highlights slider -100, which gave me the results as if I had it was processed as E-6 (first image). I kinda feel guilty for this level of post-editing, but justified it as an honest attempt to return this film to its authentic roots. What do you think? .
