WOW! Love this one Mathias

I love shots like this one! I might like it even more if it didn't appear slightly tilted, and maybe a little less contrast would be good too, with a little detail in the rocks. But all in all a terrific shot! :-)

Re: WOW! Love this one Mathias

thank you, Bob! I tried to improve the picture, but it did not get better. As it is a "contre-jour-shot", even with lower contrast there are not more details in the rocks. Do you really think the picture is not horizontal? The right one of the two main peaks is Cima Tosa (3173 m), the left one Cima Brenta (3151 m). Distance to Cima Brenta is a little bit bigger.

I was judging based on the water, but I looked at it with imaging software and it's pretty hard to tell. It may be an optical illusion. :-)

fine picture!!!

Is it the result obtained scanning a print or (as I suppose) a slide?

In such case, can you tell me something about the hardware that you used?

Re: fine picture!!!

Hi livioz,

yes, all my pictures are scanned slides. My hardware isn't that extraordinary. 1994-2003 I used a Pentax Z 20 SLR camera with two zooms 35-70 mm and 70-200 mm. This old picture was done with a Pentax MX. Always I used Fuji Sensia film. I scan with a CanonScan FS 2710 (no more available).

IMHO very important for internet use are software corrections what I do with PhotoImpact.

HTH. Mathias
