Flowing to Darkness by Lorvija Flowing to Darkness by Lorvija
Went shooting with a friend and he showed me this neat place.
Too bad my tripod was broken so I had only my small tripod(~15cm) with me which really isn't designed to big cameras...
Anyways I'm pretty happy how this came out.
Basically had to use my tripod as monopod and hold it still for 30 secs.. managed pretty well but messed up the focus as it was so bloody dark that I basically had to guess the focus...
Anyways I hope you like it

Oh btw those are clouds, not northern lights!

sharpness&contrast adjusted a bit in PSP and added borders.

Fullview is a must!

You said you can't get it any larger right? My advice to you would be print it and take it to somewhere near you that does film development (a photo center of sorts), since you live in Finland, I can't really give examples of places I would suggest going to, but most of those film specialists offer to enlarge images. My aunt did it for a picture of my uncle after he died, the image came out perfect.

As for the pictures, the lighting is incredible; the time of day, the perfect timing and placement of the clouds, the dark waters with the edges reflecting lights that seem to get swallowed up the further down you go, the towering trees making the viewer feel smaller, and the ice, all come together to set a mood for the image. It is just amazing!!

Whoa thanks for long comment!

Well sure I could get it bigger by enlargening and doing some magic but the quality will suffer... If you englarge from small image you always lose some quality... It's also highly dependant on subject.

And I'm slightly perfectionist :P

I actually just looked again the original and it's not so bad what my comment actually says.. It's quite good.. I doubt you could see the problems in a4 print..

I don't think you should be so quick to down the idea; those specialists really work magic. I said the same thing and then I saw the picture of my uncle and compared... i was astounded... How they filled the missing pixels so perfectly will always be a mystery to me, but they did incredible, because the quality hadn't seemed to change at all. I didn't see a problem with it, but merely made a suggestion if you ever wanted to enlarge it.

Also, a picture that incredible deserves a long comment~! It's really good!

Thanks =)

Well I've printed some 10m x 3m photos (around 150 x a3 papers) so I've done some enlargening =) And they do it with photoshop anyways so why not just skip the printing/scanning and do it straight to the digital file (: I might actually need to try this a bit later if I can sell my photos.. Then I'll need a lot bigger (:
