Misty Morning at the Ochsenkopf Slopes

On a slightly misty September morning I was walking up a meadow at the Ochsenkopf when I took this photo. This meadow is part of a ski slope in winter. With a height of slightly more than 1000 meter the Ochsenkopf is one of the highest mountains of the Fichtelgebirge in the north of Bavaria.


Back then I had a 3 MP Panasonic wich is pretty noisy even at the just the ISO 150 used here.


I used the gimp levels tool to move the histogram to more shadows. This avoids the purple tint that Picasa I feel lucky tool introduced in my last version of this photo.


The smart sharpening gimp fu-script detects the edges in the photo and only applies sharpening there. I think there are a lot of edges in this photo.
