    Cool shot!! What exactly is going on?

    To add to the thread, here's an image of 3 of my friends, all photography students here at the university. Shot with a new Fujica G690 camera I'm trying out, 100mm f/3.5 Fujinon (Tessar), on Fuji 160C film, cropped to 8x10 ratio, bounce flash:

    Took this in May 2013 at Valley of the Gods, UT. I was all set up to photograph something else at nautical twilight when one of those pink clouds lit up Rooster Butte and Setting Hen Butte. I quickly switched lenses and was able to get this shot. Pentax 6x7, 55-100mm zoom, Velvia 50. Since I don't have a gargantuan GND to cover the 55-100, I lowered the sky a bit in Photoshop to match my vision.

    120 Ektar 100/Rolleiflex Automat Tessar on a trail on Mount Battie in Camden Hills State Park. Starting to think of iso 100 as slow. 20 years ago, it would be considered normal speed.

    The colors look very natural. So is this a direct scan from the negative? If so, could you summarize your scanning workflow? Thanks!

    Glad to share how I scan. I turned down my resolution for the sake of the screenshots; I usually work at 2.5k res but that doesn't matter with regard to color/tones. I basically scan to get all the range captured, and adjust contrast and fine tuning post-scan.
    See the settings on the left... for 4x5/8x10 I do lower res.

    Basically, set the tone curve to flat for the RGB channel and it will stay flat for each color. Then set the sliders on the input-output gradient to the extremes for the RGB channel and it will stay like that for each color. Then in each color (as shown with Blue), I set the range on the graph to include the range that was prescanned with a little room on each edge. If the L/R sliders are in the colored area, you are clipping highlights or shadows. Do that later if you want in PS. Go through each color and then the RGB. You'll end up with a pretty close scan in terms of color balance with contrast a little low. I save it as a TIFF and open it in PS.
