I like the 3rd and final ones best
I think the idea is to mimic colour infrared film like Kodak Aerochrome.

I did try 'colour correcting' these in Lightroom just to see what would happen - the results were not good. Not sure why you'd shoot this film and then try to correct the colour for real though.

I think to get the best out of this film you need to include elements that aren't green, such as buildings or whatever, so you just have accents of purple rather than have wall to wall purple. So that's my next task - to try to find subjects that will work better with the film.
