Description:

Early snow in october gave me the opportunity for some really great subjects. The early sun made the rock glowing in an intensive red. The contrasting colors and simple lines make the composition quite abstract. Though it seams so, there is no manipulation of colors, there still is less saturation than in the original... I NEVER give additional manipulation to my photos, I wait for the best light, and with some special camera-techniques (no color-filtering!!!) i try to get the best shot possible.

Like most of my pics, this one also was taken with a Linhof technicardan 4x5\" on 6x9cm Fujichrome Velvia.

Hey man great stuff. I shoot similar picture on Himalaya , it was sun set but my color was not that great :-(

Is there any kind of mist in the environment cause I am thinking why in my picture it was not saturated that way. You can check my pics http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=30772

Hey, thanks for your compiment,

The Problem: In higher Regions the Ultra-Violet component of the light increases. This causes an increasing of the "blue touch" in your pics. The effect: Warm Colors get cold. The same effect you can realize with snow/ice, the light gets reflected, your pic gets cold.
You can wait early in the morning, before sun rises, and take your picture with the first glimps of light. The UV-components are quite small then. Or (the easier way ;) ) use a polarization-filter or an "Warming-Up"-filter (81A, 81B, 81C, A for soft, B for Medium, C for hard warming-up). But note: Filters decrease the physical quality of your images: They get less sharp and grained (you wont have success with sortware-sharpening cause of the grain).
In your case a posible reason for the reduced color-saturation could be the backlight. Reflections light-up shadows, that causes reduction of light- and color-contrast. If the light-source isnt in the picture you reduce this effect by using a compendium (or just hold away direct light onto the lens with your hand). If the sun is on the picture (if you now try to hold away the sun with your hand, it would be visible in the picture) ;) ), just a really good lens could protect you from contrast-eating effects :)
Just try (and probably read the books of Ansel Adams ^^, "the Camera" and "the negative"), you will see it all gets better with your experience.

Hi Franz

Your site have some very good pictures.Hope to shoot like them in future. Are you a professional photograher ? , I am just learning. Also I shoot with DSLR so think it is hard to get shrpness of film camera.

Oh since you have lots of pictures of Alps are you a trekker??. Come to Himalay once you will find more beauty here.

Thx Anirban :)

no, i'm no professionell, I even didnt study it. Just hobby... I'd like to, but here in Germany it's extremely hard. It seems to me as if Nature-Photography isn't seen as art. And Photograhy of that modern kind isn't mine... I like clear lines, contrast in colors, light and forms. I always try to hide human "influence" on the landscape, so i must get a point where no houses, streets etc is visible. Combining this with an interesting Composition of fore-, middle- and background is the most difficult thing.
And now I had to realize, that in Germany nobody wants to see this "Nature-Art"... So I think of leaving Germany.

Digital Cameras are the best way to learn Photography. You can try and try, and you dont have to pay a penny :) But the problem with the shrpness, yes, thats right. I think you really have to be a freak, if you buy an expensive equipment, just for hobby...
And with that heavy weight (40kg++), trekking isn't still possible :(. You have to plan, watch for some interesting places, and then come just to make that one shot... But, thats right, I love the mountains.

But now I have to stop, gets too much text...

Thanks for your cheering up

Franz

Hi Franz

I like Natural photography too. Though I think how greate your skills and camera are you can not totally reproduce the environment. You have to be there to feel it.

Here also people are not very much interested in Natural Photography but mainly in model and celebraty photography which hate very much.

I also like to go to the places where the land is still virgin or very few people go there. My last trek was in Neora Vally Reserve forest, its 60% is still a virgin forest and it is the place where you can find Red Panda only.

We camped in a place called "Alubari" at altitude 8100 feet. The place has only a single forest Cabine and there is no population with redius of 5 km. I can send you the pictures of this place. You can also reply me to anirbanbiswas (at) gmail (dot) com

ooh 40kg load is not a very much problem you can carry the most needed stuff about 15kg and rest can be carried by a porter.

sorry for double-post... that happens pressing the stop-load button after pressing (unforunately) the "save"- instead of the "edit"-button ...

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
