Help to restore colours of these old photos

Postby Lensmeister » Tue Jan 03, 2017 10:17 pm

I have been scanning old negatives but I have a roll of 12 exposure 100 ASA (ISO) Konica film (Free when I got a film developed) and it's a woeful colourwise. The roll was shot using a Praktica MTL5B with 50mm Zeiss lens so there was not strange colour cast with the kit.

Can anyone talk me through getting it into a decent look.

Two sample photos
