Dawn with view to Alassio/Liguria/Italy.


Thank you so much for your recent incredible support and encouragement!

It's overwhelming. I don't know what happened: Within a week over 20'000 views, hundreds of comments and more than 200 contacts... This means something to me! Thanks again!! Sorry if I can't give a reply to everybody since I work full time and have a family. Thanks for comprehension.


Fortunately I got some reasonable and constructive critique on the latest shot "ligurian blue hour" for the technical set up. Thanks guys! I learned: For landscape photography never use that chosen stop f2.8 (and particular not with a full frame camera...) and 8nd filter whilst the blue hour if you don't want to get an unsharp foreground. And that's right :)

If you want to learn something, then better take the set up as described below :)))) :


Canon eos 5d mark 2, Canon ef 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM.

8 sec., f16, ISO 100, 16mm, Lee 0.9 gnd soft

Original frame.

PP RAW in ACR: adjustments vibrance, sharpness, vignette + topaz denoise

Please no invitations and banners. Thanks for your visits, comments or faves.

Made the peculiar experience that some guys post their own shots in the comment box instead of commenting. In the future I'll delete without any pardon ;)
