I've got a test strip of Velvia crossed the other way in a sleeve,
but haven't gotten around to scanning it yet...
You didn't say what media settings you're using in Vuescan. I'd
be trying Device/Media type = "Slide film", and Color/Slide vendor
= "GENERIC" for starters.
I'd also start with Color/Color balance = "Auto levels" but uncheck
"Auto black point" and set all the black point values to 0's. Then
I'd try one scan, and uncheck "Auto white point" to see where
Vuescan set it, and then adjust those values manually if I wasn't
getting what I wanted.
You might also need to uncheck Color/Auto mask and adjust
those values manually. A lot of the pink color that you like might
be coming from the film base, which Vuescan will try to correct
away for you.
Just some thoughts... Hope this helps,
