About the Image(s)

This is my picture for June. It was taken from my drone whose settings are automatic: t=1/1250 s, f/2,6 and ISO 100. The post-processed in PS. These are the Sibillini mountains in Italy, zone hit by several earthquakes recently.

A very strong image Janos. Looks good in b&w but I would love to see it in color. I know absolutely nothing about drones, but I must ask about the lower left corner section in shadow. I see a lot of pixilation happening there?   Posted: 06/09/2020 06:02:59

I know nothing about drone photography but Ian is right, there is a lot of pixilation in the bottom right (not left). I checked and the image is 854 kb which should not cause that effect, but it might be something specific to drone photography. This is a very barren area and yet I believe those are wooden steps in the foreground. Please share a little about the area if you don't mind.

The image is very interesting and brings out my quest for more information about the place!   Posted: 06/14/2020 14:48:24

You are perfectly right about the pixelation in the right corner, I don't know how it happened, since it is perfect on the original. By converting and post processing I made some mistake which I did not observe. It was taken close to Castelluccio, a village at the border between Umbria and Marche districts. The village was quasi completely destroyed by the earthquake. The landscape is fantastic.   Posted: 06/15/2020 03:28:28

Very nice - not a fan of drones but like the texture. I think the highlights in the snow is a bit much and great contrast from the mountains to the farmland.   Posted: 06/14/2020 17:00:42

Beautiful b&w landscape image. The texture, light and shadow are very nice. The dark area of the lower right corner is a little bit distraction. I think brightening up that area a bit may be better.   Posted: 06/26/2020 16:58:49
