Mallorca Mellow, What I Use on Vacation

Eterna film simulation recipe for sunny vacations and bright days

With all of the recipe choices out there, and the 200+ on this site, you may wonder which are the ones that I actually use. Well, I do tend to have a habit of creating them for the jounrey ahead, and for a vaction to Mallorca, I did just that.

I wanted a mellow toned nostalgic look, but one that was particularly happy in bright conditions. The recipe needed to be warm toned, but not too orange, so I decided to use Eterna as the base. The palette of this simulation had the qualities that I was seeking, with a cinematic look, mellow greens and soft blues. Just right for vacation memories.

So, this is the recipe I chose for my vacation. I hope you like the look and might be tempted to try it too.
