Before you jump all over me, hear me out...

I am enthralled with the vivid colors and sharpness that only seem to be achieved with slide/transparnecy film. But when printing from transparencies, don't you lose a lot of the quality that you shot the film for in the first place?

After attaining some more experience with b/w, I think I will start playing with color again, and the thought of slide film both intriques and puzzles me? What do most of you Velviaholics do with your slides, once processed? Any recommendations to be made?
