And there very much lies the problem, neither do I. I fiddle about pressing buttons and moving sliders until it looks ok to my eyes.....and there very much again lies the problem....
That's where slide film comes in handy, the colours are fixed! Joking aside, I wonder if it would be possible to make a 'filter' plug-in app to help people with colour vision deficiency?

As another thread from a few years ago shows, unless you calibrate (???) your scanner with a proper test slide (both these thing have proper names I've forgotten), slide film colours can be way off when scanned. This is definitely true of Kodachrome!

I've had a bit of a mixed bag from my home-scans of my Ektachrome shots. Some have come out with lovely, saturated, well-exposed results while others have looked, well, a little off - the colours not looking right and the shadow detail lacking. Obviously, slide film has far less exposure latitude, so this is likely my own inexperience shining through to some extent, but I'm also thinking it might be the scanner and Silverfast in some cases (although this is tempered a little by the fact that, when I tried to re-scan one troublesome frame with my V550 and Epson Scan, it looked even worse!). Anyway, this one looked better as a black and white conversion than in it's native colours...

I've not had my Ektachrome back yet, but I've opted for a high-res Noritsu scan (thought I'd treat myself to test the new film!) so it will be interesting to see what the photos look like. I've also gone for mounted slides, so I can see what they look like projected a few feet wide. Fingers crossed and I'll keep you posted.

I LOVE seeing slides and would love to shoot and project my own, but I just can't seem to commit to going exclusively slide film. :(

Same set up in a different location further downstream.

Some of these houseboats were very impressive ( imo of course)…....I could quite easily have entertained myself shooting several frames but as it was I only got a couple, including this one which I personally liked due its well "weathered and beaten up" appearance.
