Some gorgeous images here. It amazes me how beautiful Kodachrome was from its beginning. Kodak worked for decades to improve it but IMO they ruined it in an effort to make it better. I think Kodachrome reached its peak in the late 60’s and early 70’s. I think Kodachrome 25 from that period was the best.

Well, this time (if I have commented on this thread before), I got to page 2 and quit. There are some stunning photos here. For that I am happy. But about 1990, we had a house fire and some 16,000 to 18,000 negatives were destroyed beyond use. I don't know for sure, but at least 6 6o 8 thousand were Kodachrome. That is a sadness to me.

I always felt that way as well. K64 was for me a compromise for when a fast film was desired, otherwise it was Kodachrome 25. My how perceptions change.

I agree about Kodachrome 25. My favourite film.

Here's some more KR25:

Sydney SLSA surf carnival, 1980. OM1. OM Zuiko 200mm f/4. KR25.

Here is another K64 Professional, 120 (Mamiya C330F, 180 mm f4.5). A bit contrasty for Kodachrome, but I used 3-4 exposures during digitization and HDR functionality to rescue it.

This one is K25 in a Zeiss Icarex 35S with CZ 50mm f1.8 Ultron. I think this was the first roll of film I put through this camera after buying it form my dad.
