Looking for great process and scan lab for C41 or thoughts on switching to E6
I'm assisting a photographer who is working on a project using 8x10 color images of beaches along the pacific coast. The images have large areas of sky and water. He is currently using C41 film and we've been having some issues with the labs we've been trying out, we get some purple edges here and there and some spots etc. To my understanding this is due to an extremely short processing time with C41.
His plan is to print very large so every defect is very important.
Basically my questions:
Does anyone knows a great C41 lab that would help to eliminate these issues?
Can they also provide high quality scans, possibly providing "proof scans" followed by drum scans?
Should we just switch to E6 where we could get a longer processing time.
