Here's the biggest reason why I like Sensia100 or Astia100: its latitude. When scanned, you can adjust curves to find details from highlights that seem quite blown out, and shadows are good as well. And, projecting the slides in a dark room will reveal this shadow detail even without any painful digital processing .
I would not call that creative, myself. Pretty straight forward. Definitely manipulated all to hell, though, at least by my definition. Looks tremendously bad to me. Might as well have shot digital if that's what you get in the end.
