Another shot (perhaps not so successful) of the view from the Schloss Leopoldskron, in Salzburg.
I have to state my views about image editing here. I absolutely do not believe that what a camera registers either on film or on pixels is “reality”. The camera is a mechanical device. It can only reproduce reality in a limited way. Editing an image aims at enhancing the perception of something. I do not edit my pictures to make them closer to reality, but I try to enhance some kind of quality that a particular image transmits. Or a feeling that I want to convey. This photo has been processed using HDR techniques. I think it actually makes the image closer to what I saw in the site than the original unedited shot did. In addition, it enhances the magic that truly existed.
