"Do Not Enter" - Heidelberg, Germany

I have a quick question if you don't mind. I just returned from a trip to N.Ireland where I shot a bunch of film on my Minolta, my dad put the film in 1 hour processing, which I usually never use, and when I got the pictures back, they all have a bit of a bluish tint. Could you tell me if this is because of the processing, camera setting, film, or maybe from the film going through security? (although the airport staff assured me that my film was low enough not to be affected) If you need to see the photos, they are posted on my blog. Lovely pictures by the way, I love the variety. Thank you for your time.

Thank you so much. Yeah, I didn't mess with the white balance on my camera, actually I didn't change the settings at all from when I had taken previous shots, that's part of what had confused me. they are film and some of the it was a little old, stored in the fridge to last longer, but two of the roles I actually bought in N. Ireland and they still have the tint.The negatives and digital disk both have the same tint as the printed pictures. I've seen the tools for color correction on photoshop before, but have never had to use them, so if you could rework one that would be great. my e-mail is, do you need me to e-mail you one or two of the photographs, or can you just get them off my blog? I never knew that some fine art photographers actually use old film for the effects, thanks for telling me, that will be my excuse for how the pictures turned out if anyone asks. Thanks again for the help.
