I have also learned a lot during my time at SP and I have better material now. So doing some re-scans would be useful for me also!

Thanks Mathias. The old one was submitted at 1024 resolution, so it really got smashed by SP. The loss of sharpness is pretty dramatic. Plus I got rid of that unnatural blue cast in the snow. I think it will be worth doing this to some of my earlier submissions.

Looks like a stroll to the top but undoubtedly isn't. Great picture and the improvement is stunning! I have downloaded the first 3000 pictures from SP (wrote a little program) and ended up with abot 20 useful picts. In the olden days people didn't know how to sharpen....

Very interesting. I would like to learn from you!

we did this peak years ago. We hiked into Lukla, paid a kid with a pair of tennis shoes to show us the route(not much help).. Lukla back to Lukla 3 and a half daze. Climbed the central peak and realized we were not done.. climbed the north as well.. very nice trip. Walked back to Kathmundu.(after Everest base camp)
