Over the top

First of all, it has nothing to do with Stallone's movie 'Over the top' :)

Before christmas I was browsing my archives to find some images to print for my family as a gift. This is the one I gave to my brother's family. And I think it really looks good large printed.
A got a little help in pp'ing this time - we printed my images in my girlfriend's father's lab and he made some adjustments before printing. They all seemed very useful for me. Still, before considering my behaviour unpropriate I'd like you to know that the original 'character' of the image was very much the same.
I hope it's OK with you like this!

The image was made in the Mecsek, ~400m asl, above the city of Pécs. You can see over a huge area of this part of the mountain, so came the title.

I wish to return later with a snowy view from this spot..

Thanks for your interest!
Best regards,

What a lovely gift this must have made, Andor! The golden hues are instantly striking across the vast landscape, the foreground offers pleasing contrast, and the background mountain range with hovering clouds completes the scene very nice. Your lighting is very effective here, and the aperture choice takes advantage of it well enough to give you ample sharpness throughout.

Hi Andor.
Many thanks for visit of my gallery and nice words of comments. Also thanks for opportunity to watch your nice shots. This one is very impressive. Landscapes are my weak point till now. However, looking fine pictures as yours I will try to improve my skill too. I like colour palette a lot, fine cloudy sky, great composition of the shot and selection of a POV. Details across the frame is excellent. My compliments and kind regards.

TFS and have a nice night MF!


Szia Andor!

Elfelejtettem véleményezni ezt a gyönyörű képet, mikor felraktad. Egyébként a misinai TV-toronyból készült?

Egy dolgot leszámítva minden bámulatos rajta: élesség, látvány, mélységélesség stb. Csak a színek nem jönnek be, legalábbis nekem. Értem, hogy karácsonyi ajándék, ami nem lehet egy "snassz" tájkép a szokásos színekkel, de attól még nekem a fehér-egyensúly ilyetén mértékű eltolása, vagyis a kép ennyire "kimelegítése" kicsit sok. Nem azt mondom, hogy nem szép és nem jó, csak nem az én esetem.

Persze ez nem több egy véleménynél. Abszolút valószínű, hogy másoknak meg pont ez tetszik a legjobban a képben. És ez így is van rendjén, mert hál' Istennek nem vagyunk egyformák.

Attól, hogy a színvilág nekem nem jött be, 2 pontot adok, mert maga a kép bámulatos, csak a fehér-egyensúly lett kitolva meleg irányba.

Üdv, jó hétvégét, Laci
