Hola Luis,

I think the colours in these images look fine, although since I am 
looking at them on a laptop screen, this is not the most reliable test. 
But as Slobodan noted, the images are very soft. Given how sunny it was 
in Perpignan, I do not think it is camera shake--I suspect your scanner 
is letting you down.

If I were you, I would buy a good film scanner. Right now they are very 
cheap, since not many people are buying them these days. I paid 
somewhere between 1500 and 2000 Euro for my Nikon LS-2000 back in 1998. 
Today you can buy a better scanner than that for 500 EUR.

Saludos cordiales,
