Sorry I Don't understand what the denial bit is about but I think people should be allowed to make there image look like however they like, if there able through bad scanning get the look they require I don't really see the what's wrong with it! Photos can look like however they want.
I don't understand why you mean either about a colour cast, I think that's just the same no? Like if it's blue overcast then they need to make it warmer?.. how's that anymore stylistic?
But yeah I'm sure if edited mine to make it look Normal it would look better but when I scanned those in at the wrong settings that's what I got and really liked it!
