Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

For technology over 100 years old, and even considering the primitiveness of the lenses, these images are stunning!
The softness of the color probably owes itself to the lenses (achromatic) as much as the dyes used. At this late date, it's probably a bit difficult to tell. There's probably some degradation over time, so the original images may have been very vivid. The process probably traveled well, since the photos are from around the world.
Don't you wish Ektachrome held up this well after even 50 years!
