    was flying back from Shanghai and went to the toilet. Looked out of the window and missed a better shot actually - one of a city in golden sunset. So no filters.

    The original picture is slightly slanted, had to rotate in PS.

    Gorgeous!

    Try and do something about your scanning. Kind of pity to see such scans on your works. Tweek's scans seem to be better though are you using the same unit. You may like to check with him.

    i might bring some of them down tomorrow but it's not ready yet. I'll prolly have to go for another round of shooting this weekend. I should have recorded every single exposure's settings but was too lazy.... no databack so have to do more expensive way of using my fallible memory.

    great capture, elaine, was it shot from a plane? Or mountain?

    btw just to share with you the 101 of scanning from an old mouldy intrescan scanner.

    1) place the photo anywhere but at the edges of the scanner. Although the edges help to align the photo, those are where the ghosting lines will occur. I usually place the photo at the centre and try to align as best as I can.

    2) The scans will have an inherent red cast. After scanning, edit it in photoshop by adjusting the red and blue channel levels. Compare the results to the actual print.

    3) Scan at about 300dpi, then downsize to the size u use for web postings. If u scan at a lower resolution like 150 dpi then downsize, the quality is visibly worse. But yes I understand that for such an old scanner, scanning at 300dpi takes eons.

    Hope these will help.

    haha next time try that from a mountain. You'll get 2 x satisfactions at the same time: 1 x getting a good photo and 1 x getting up there.

    Stunning colors and very "moody" composition. I like this shot very much.
