mystical moose

Newer Older

A good friend pointed out my next post here (this one) would be the 500th addition to my photo stream since I began adding pictures in here 18 months ago. At that time I did not have a digital camera, so I took a few of my favorite 35mm slides, made quick scans, and loaded them on flickr. Unfortunately I did not know much about color calibration, dust removal, high resolution scanning, etc. The result was that I posted some rather amateurish scans. So for my 500th photo I decided to re-issue a technically better version of one of the earliest slides I posted on my first day. I corrected the color, removed numerous dust spots, straightened the horizon, as I did not even have the first slide on the scanner bed evenly, and reduced the noise so this image looks much more like the actual scene. Below is the untouched original right-out-of-the-scanner version of this slide first posted on 8/28/05. Both have advantages. Preferences?

Today is a good day, SK2的足跡, and 187 other people added this photo to their favorites.

    Hi Steve,
    I'm the webmaster for www.wilderness.net and owner of the America's Wilderness Areas Flickr group. I'd love to use this image of your mystical moose in our home page slideshow sometime in the next few months. I change the slideshow images every month or so to give our 150,000 monthly visitors new visions of wild places. You would be given credit, of course; your name would appear when you mouse over the picture. If you'd be willing to grant permission for this use, please send me an email to that effect to lisa@wilderness.net. Thanks for considering this request!
