Got to love vintage cars. I especially like the colors of the red Merc and the Auto-Union. Did you shoot with three different films for a specific reason?

Oh, and a minor correction: the shot you have marked as a Morgan is actually an MG. The humped cowl is a dead giveaway.
Any man who can see what he wants to get on film will usually find some way to get it;
and a man who thinks his equipment is going to see for him is not going to get much of anything.

Thank you, O2Pilot ! I planned to use -primary- AGFA Precisa CT slide film (for slides projection with my Leitz P150)  and Ektar 100.
The Portra was a mistake 'in the heat of the moment' - but I like it with the Auto Union captures.

For comparison - The Auto Union on Ektar 100 :

Yes, the Morgan is actually an MG ...  :-[

I normally prefer Ektar's rendering, but when it comes to pastels, Portra is fantastic. It's perfect for that Auto-Union.

I like them all, specially those shot with Agfa CT Precisa and Etkar. The Agfa was my favourite film of all until I bought the famous Pakon and then I started to fight with slides scan. What is your method, Andreas?

Uh, thanks for sharing your photos.

Thank you for the kind comment, Mac !

I use an Epson V600 for scanning my (unmounted) slides.
I’m in Professional Mode, Color Positive Film, 48-bit Color, 2400dpi, and Target Size is set to Original.
Everything is unchecked except Digital ICE. Epson Scan is set to save as tiff.
No further adjustments so far - I found it useful to adjust the Auto Exposure Level for about one point up to High (Configuration menue).
After scanning I fine tuned the Levels for all color channels and adjusted the Tone Curve in Lightroom.
That's it.

For scanning negative film (esp. Ektar) with an Epson, there is a nice 'how to' by my friend Colton Allen :

English is not my first language, so please don't mind ...

Thank you Andreas.

I have a V500 though I find it useful only for negative b&w 120 film. Not valid for slides or 135 film (it does not reach my quality requirements...)

 English is not my first language too, so everything is fine  :-)
