Ariel Lepor April 29, 2007

This photo is a little small, the image looks a little over-sharpened (black halos), and it still doesn't look detailed, and I noticed that this only started getting comments after it was finalist, but congratulations on your well-deserved grand win anyway. #4228781

Lisa J. Boulden level-classic April 29, 2007

Huge CONGRATULATIONS, Inge!!!
A really cool image in an AMAZING gallery. --Lisa #4228830

Inge Johnsson April 29, 2007

Hi Ariel,

Not sure what you mean by "only started getting comments after it was finalist", I thought that pretty much goes for all images here? How else would anyone know it exists?

As far as the image quality displayed here, I am stumped when it comes to preparing jpegs from the original 5400 DPI scan from the Fuji Velvia 50 chrome. To me it is highly unpredictable how it ends up looking on the website. If you have any helpful hints I would be grateful.

Thanks! #4229089

Ariel Lepor April 29, 2007

I was just saying that for such a good grand prize winning picture, you'd think people would have noticed it a little earlier. That's all. It really is a nice image. But to make it look better in the web...

Using some image editing software (I recommend Helicon Filter Free), resize it to 480 pixels on the shorter end and then save it as a 100% jpeg. Then, open that picture and sharpen it to your liking, save it as a 100% jpeg again and upload it.

That would make your pictures reliably looking optimal! :) Keep up the excellent work, Inge!
