Lightroom Preset (Pentax Reversal)

I’ve taken a try at recreating the look that my Pentax K-7 generates using the digital reversal filter (slide filter).  It appears that it isn’t that simple a matter and that the processing may vary depending on the source image.  When optimized for one image it may produce different results on another.   It still makes an admiral effort and has a look all it’s own.

You can see that while there is a close match in these images (blues and yellows are a bit of a problem) the results diverge even more on some real world images
