About the Image(s)

Wishing that I could go to Canada again I looked for some old images of a trip to British Columbia. It was made in film days but the country is beautiful and fresh. Emerald Lake is in British Columbia.

Velvia film ISO 50, lens 24mm, A 14, S 1/180 sec, Handheld. Image was digitized by scanning the slide into my computer.

Wish I knew how to scan slides into the computer! This is one of those images that makes one think, "Oh, I wish I was there." Depth of field, color, sharpness and composition are good.   Posted: 10/17/2020 09:48:28

Ruth Thank you. Scanning slides can be very slow and sometimes frustrating trying to clear the stuff that accumulates on the slides and shows up on the digital image   Posted: 10/17/2020 15:30:58

A very pleasing landscape, your subjects are properly placed on the the frame and the image is well balanced. To me the color looks a bit overdone, perhaps consider toning down the overall saturation a bit and desaturation may be useful. Good job !   Posted: 10/20/2020 00:24:09

I seem to recall Velvia was known and loved for giving us beautiful scenery with vivid colors we wanted to believe we saw. Sort of like Photoshop can do for us today, only with Velvia it was "straight out of the camera." It's a lovely scene and I especially like the way the shadows tell so much about the shapes on the mountain.   Posted: 10/20/2020 13:53:28

Audrey Thank you. Yes Velvia was a slow and saturated film making it one of the more popular films of its day.   Posted: 10/20/2020 14:59:02

Lovely landscape with good composition and light. I agree with Abe the color looks a little overdone. The placement of the canoes is spot on. I would see if the black area on the far edge of the lake could be brightened to show a little detail, it draws my eye away from the subject.   Posted: 10/22/2020 10:35:55
