I love colors, and love the colors of films such as Kodachrome or Velvia. Nowadays with softwares like Lightroom, our field of experimentation has become endless and we can create our own "films".  The pictures below are probably infuenced by some of these old films, mixing modern contrast and clarity with specific color drifts and desaturation.
