Goldeneye, with Extra Warm Tones

Classic Negative film simulation recipe with a strong warm colour shift

Here’s a recipe to deliver happy vibes in the sunshine, and bring your Autumn and Fall colours to life. Goldeneye is an ultra warm and rich film recipe with a strong cosy aesthetic.

The base simulation is Classic Negative, that works really well with reds and yellows, and this is given a further boost with a super warm colour setting and a little softness from -1 sharp and -1 clarity. The result is dreamy and rich, working especially well in golden hour and should be just perfect for the details of the colourful seasons.

  1. I was very curious how this recipe will work on the sunny streets and a bit sceptical but… oh well I fell in love with the first photo I took. Warm colors, great reds, deep shadows, it’s perfect and gonna be one of my favourite recipe. Thank you soon much.


    • Thanks Marcel. I’m glad you like it. You raise a good point. My personal style of muted tones is certainly not the preference of everyone. I’m sure I’ll look at including more bold recipes over time, maybe versions of existing ones with more colour and deeper contrast. I did this with Retrochrome and Retrochrome Plus (see ) where I made a more intense version of a recipe.


    • Thanks for sharing those. We’ve been missing some gear photos! I’ve looked at Pacific Blues, and saw similarities with Fuji Five-O, but I want to give it a try soon. I’m still photographing for recipes mostly at the moment, but I feel like an end is in sight!


  2. PS: may I suggest links to “latest comments” somewhere near the bottom of page? So visitors could see which film sims have new comments.

    Goldeneye is nice for autumn colours but I think Ruby Tuesday is best, thus far.

  4. Posting from warm and sunny Lanzarote! See what you can use.

    – Vineyard, palm trees and volcanoes (a village where I’m staying):
    – Walking the trail above and watching the rain down below:
    – The good Lanzarotean life:
    – Just a glimpse of the sea:
    – Lonely house on lava rocks:
    – It’s quaint everywhere here on the island. Bougainvillea and green door:
    – Take the plunge…:
    – Vertical version of photo above:
    – Sleepy fishing village:
    – Lava reached the sea:
    – The island has over 300 volcanoes, it’s possible to see at least one in every direction:
    – And to be able to walk right up to a crater is something really special:


  5. Last 5. Pick out ones you like best for the gallery.

    – Right outside my front door this morning:
    – Lone palm tree in the (terraced) fields:
    – Seen from the village’s lookout point:
    – Number 2:
    – Walking trail has a street name as there are some houses on the same trail:

    That’s it for Goldeneye.
