    Bill your shot looks cyan and light even in the foreground so I guess its the printing/scan that's mainly at fault.

    the above is just minus cyan plus yellow with a tweek in curves.
    that said:
    Ektars colours are slightly on the vivid side, cyan, blue and red are stronger than with Portra NC although I quite like this for most colour work if you want accurate colours then Portra (or even Fuji) will be more your bag.
    This is the saturated look I get from the film:

    that was a just slap it on the scanner attempt, but just as I visualised it during capture...

    Colors can be super-saturated with Ektar. Here's a couple of mine. The flower is 35mm Ektar f4 @1/100. The tandem is 120 sunny 16. The 35mm using metered settings does seem saturated, but the 120 @sunny 16 represents accurately the mid-summer grass and 100 degree/85% humidity look of the sky based on the atmospheric density in those conditions.

    PS: for some reason the flower didn't upload.

    what's with the flare on the right?

    I'm looking forward to shoot the pro pack of this stuff I just received when I take the kids to the Outer Banks in a few weeks. I plan to have it processed at a pro lab. If it's anything like the Ektar 25 of about 15 years ago, I know I'll love it. That stuff was the next best thing to Kodachrome 25.

    Not flare, overlapped exposures.

    If you really want to have some fun, try explaining double exposures to a clueless digisnapper!

    On the topic of colour casts w/ Ektar, I read on other forums that when over-exposed, the film has a tendency to have casts. Not that I noticed it myself, because I've always used incident metering with this film, which is the surest way to avoid overexposed highlights, as one does with slide film.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    In that circumstance, I'd say it's a new $150 Photoshop plug-in called ShortWind that makes digital look just like real film. Or I'd just claim that the camera wasn't advancing the CMOS chip far enough between exposures, and needed adjustment.

    My Graflex roll film back. I didn't wind the exposure to a full stop.
