This is no b&w picture… The evening light was incredibly soft, showing only faint layers of the mountains in the slight fog. In the lower right corner you see Fraueninsel with the clocktower of the monastery’s church. Taken from a public transport boat to Chieming on the east coast of Chiemsee.

The original contrast range was around 3 f-stops. I used lightzone for linux to restore the original impression of the situation.

  1. I like this one a lot. You’ve done an excellent job of holding the subtlety of the scene instead of jazzing it up. Nice going!
