I recycled another spool of 35mm Valca 6 Din using the same process as in my first post, only this time I used Dektol 1:3 instead. After determining in the darkroom that my film speed is around .0015 ASA I wanted to put my calculations to practice, and after taking a few bracket shots I decided why not try some taking some with color filters. Now, when I developed the film I was surprised to see that my photo taken with the red 25 filter came out at all, I mean in the end, isn't re-hal film just blue sensitive? I know about the phenomena that happened with the first tricolor photograph (Maxwell) but as you can see in the red filter positive both the red tail-lights and a red sticker on the trunk came out, plus look at the golden leaves on the tree to the left of the garage.

So just out of curiosity, I combined the three negatives in Photoshop (I know I cheated digitally, but I didn't tweek any levels or anything, I just combined the positives in rgb color layers and then aligned them) and I got a color image! threecolor.jpg In theory, this shouldn't be happening right? Any insights?
