Faerie Glen I by ash Faerie Glen I by ash
[Resubmitting this one after messing around with it in photoshop. Apologies to anyone who lost their comments/favourites, but the edit function doesn't seem to let you replace the actual image -- perhaps I'm missing something]

A river in Snowdonia in North Wales at about 8am on a drizzly summer's day.

Canon EOS 300, 28-90mm
Kodak Ektachrome Extra Colour 100
about f11, using a rock as a tripod

It feels almost... primordial (sp?). Like humans haven't ever even laid eyes upon the place. Looks very serene... I imagine it must have been great to just sit and watch.

[reply to tim] I used levels to maximize the contrast initially, then used the curves tool to remove the redness of the dark/black parts, which was a "feature" of both rolls of that film that I shot, then moved the colour balance towards red slightly, largely because it made the image look deeper. And finally I used levels again to maximize the contrast. I guess basically I've made the highlights more red and the shadows less red, increasing the apparent depth? The result as a whole looks much less flat and, equally importantly to me, matches much more closely the way the scene looked in real life.
