Hi Carlos,
Clearly messing with colour balance is easy to do in software, and so one can 
try the tri-X look on a picture you thought was in need of the Velvia look if 
you wish, using digital.
I had not heard of anybody trying to emulate the look of different lenses in 
software though, could you direct me to some information about this, I would be 
most interested to investigate?

I quite understand, I would much rather have my grandaughter around than a 
photograph of her, but usually it is not possible and I certainly prefer a 
photograph over nothing if I can't have the real thing! (digital or chemical)
