[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Parque Los Glaciares, Rio Electrico valley.
Climbing up to Cerro Electrico we could se this great landscape:
it's Cerro Pollone.

Aquired with scanner and postprocessed for brightness,contrast,sharpness...

...but I think that the snow is still overexposed.
However it's difficult with such a high contrast!
I will appreciate suggestions on how to have a good exposition in both white and dark parts of a shot.

Hi Enrico,
This is really a spectacular view and such great quality considering that it was scanned. On my monitor the exposure looks perfect, with still good texture and details in both snow and rock. The jagged shapes of the rock are really interesting.

About the suggestion on getting an more even exposure. In front of the camera, you can work with different filters such a polarizer or a grad filter. Also meeting the mid tone will help. In your post processing work, you can work with layers and masks. Creating different layers of exposure and masking the parts you do not need. A little dodge and burn might help as well. I hope this will help.

Buongiorno Enrico,
magnifico paesaggio di alta montagna, molto buona luminosità.

Bonjour Enrico,
Je vois que tu aimes aussi beaucoup la montagne.
Ces montagnes d'Argentine ont des formes quelque peu différentes des nôtres. Image très lumineuse de ces sommets glacés.

Often one can retreive details in the over bright area. You do have some burnout here so there isn't a lot to be done in pp. There does seem to be a slight magenta cast to this shot. Is that a characteristic of the film you were using? It is still a very striking image. Those are some jagged peaks!
