I'm totally disappointed with the results of the first ilfochrome prints that I' ve received from the lab after giving them a 4x5 slide (Fuji Velvia). I consider ed the slide tacksharp when examining it on the light table with a 6x loupe. The colours were beautiful and natural. The slide shows a river with its banks deep ly covered with snow. All of this was in a dark blueish shade at the bottom of a narrow valley. It was a very clear day. Only the mountains at the end of the va lley were in sunlight. I used a 3 stop Tiffen GND Filter to darken the sunlit mo untainside.
The ilfochromes don't seem very sharp and the colour of the blueish snow in the valley has a nasty greenish cast. What might have gone wrong in the lab? Am I si mply expecting too much from Ilfochrome? Should I give it another try with an in ternegative?
