Maybe it is an optical thing -- could it be those beautiful blues are really dead pale violet but something about vision makes them glow? Truly confusing. I photographed some colubines against an intense Colorado mountain sky. The colors seemed near identical at the site (which is why I shot the image). Every scan and print though seems to come out with a brilliant sky and pale violet columbines. Mystery to me! Maybe the slide film will help.
