Struggling with old film

It took me 3 attempts to finally get something out of this 1995 expired Kodak Ektachrome. Overexposing by 2 stops and some adjustments in development seem to have done the trick... Sort of.

    Thanks for the nice complement @kleeblatt! Means a lot coming from a pro like you! Especially after the tough run I had yesterday! I started at 11AM: shot a roll, develop, scan, bad results. Around 3PM: shot another roll, develop, scan, still not any decent results. I almost gave up, but the sunset was so gorgeous I had to go out, so I shot a third roll, develop and scan... Finally my efforts paid off! That's why there's only sunsets to be seen :-)

    Thanks @atria007! I almost gave up on this batch of film, but this roll made me think otherwise. Now I want to find out what it does on a really sunny day ;-)
