I admit, when doing color, I'd rather shoot color neg, scan and IJ print than to hand my negs over to some hastily trained wage slave to crank out with the rest of his production quota. If I had access to a color darkroom, I'd enjoy printing them photographically. but I couldn't begin to justify the expense for the amount of color that I shoot.
This is why I don't post any color work in the APUG galleries. Even if I didn't manipulate it, it just wouldn't seem right to post a neg scan or a scan off of an IJ print.
If I manage to find a good, cheap E-6 lab though, I'd like to shoot some slides or tranparencies this Fall.
