Canadian Rockies
« on: January 12, 2008, 09:48:43 PM »

I joined a few months ago, but I believe that this is my first post.

I'm from South, British Columbia, Canada, and just took a quick trip to Alberta where I took these pictures.

These top 2 are the Prince of Wales Hotel, in Waterton Park.

Hi
This is my first post on here as well.
These are some real good shots real nice veiws. I really like the old wagons.
They are very dark on my screen are they from a film camera and scanned in.
You might be able to brighten them up a bit in Photoshop

Hi There, and welcome to the list!  I agree the images look dark and oversharpened, but they show some potential!

Thanks for your input.

I've lightened them up a little, although you might have to click refresh on your computer to see any difference.
I didn't soften them

I have my screen calibrated to the printer my camera shop uses, so I never know how they'll look on anyone else's computer.

It's obviously a very beautiful location. The light seems nothing special, though. Most often the difference between a snapshot and a stunning landscape is simply the light; dramatic late-day raking light, or morning fog, or...something other than bland mid-day light.

At least one of the photos also seems to have the tell-tale halo's of a heavy-handed shadow/highlight adjustment. This should be invisible.
