Beautiful old slide great looking bird, Ciao Graham Hobbs, Vittorio
I magnified this twice, and the results is extremely sharp and clear. Good upload Graham.
now that's a spectacular bird. glad you woke it up from your archive, Graham !
It was a wonderful moment - the shot isn't cropped - it really was that tight a fit into the image area of a fixed length lens - I was lucky :)) - and yes, they're great birds Pom' - I haven't uploaded a lot of wildlife in the past, but there are a lot of other great birds in the Kruger NP - hmm...
Manoo - it was ISO50 Fuji Velvia - so I would hope the detail was good :)
best regards to all
Well you can't deny that it is bad Graham, it still looks very much original. Graham, how did you scan these photos? flat bed scanner or one of this stand alone thingy like Veho..?/
Flat bed, Manoo - Epson Perfection 4990 - scans anything that moves and at a reasonable price if you look around - I used to have a dedicated 35mm film scanner, but a lot of my older landscape stuff was 6X7 transparencies, and a flat bed is the only affordable answer for that.
Yes with results like this you have made a good choice here Graham as it does the job for your transparencies. And the results probably looks better then the original print. I thought about buying Epson 300 ( I think)basic flat bed scanner, but then I already have a scanner/printer and didn't want to take over the desk. Then I thought, do I really have a time for reviving all those hundreds of negative. May be in the future..:))
Graham a wonderful scan but it comes from a wonderful shot to start with. steve
thanks Steve - it was certainly one of those ones that you pray look as good when they come back from the developer as they did when you took them :)
Hi Graham - wow - a new stash of SA shots! Just when we thought that well had run dry. This is really such a perfect shot of the hornbill!
thanks kamaly :) , but don't tempt me - oh, just don't tempt me!!!...;D
Beautifoul bird and composition ! Cheers. eric
thank-you Eric - good to hear from you - it was a very co-operative model :)
Stunning picture, we saw lots of these Hornbills in Botswana
thanks Ossewa I've never been to Botswana, but it's up there on the wish list - all these birds never stop being exotic to a pommie like me :)
thanks keneu :)
thanks Brumm - the Kruger Park is a wonderful place for photography. :)
