How many years ago and how is it stored? Looks like it is starting to fade.


That would be a digital image, taken by a 6MP camera.

And yes it was a cloudy day if I remember correctly.

Interesting, then the white balance must have been for sun light and not cloud.

I have been there on cloudy days. The colors fade all by themselves, and there is probably nothing you can do with white balance to do anything about it. The most eye popping colors are at sunrise or sunset where you have the reddish light illuminating reddish and yellowish rock.

I note that in this one, the sun is shining on the red rocks, and they appear more red.

WOW Gary. Nice one. And as far as colors go, that's great! It really 'pops'.

This photo looks appealing because you have framed it well using part of the
tree and it's overhanging branch. I used to read a fair amount of photographic
books years ago and framing was always considered to be important in a shot.

I'm a complete ignoramus when it comes to photography, my camera is set to automatic 100% of the time! It's a 12Mp Nikon P500 bridge camera, but I just use it as an upmarket point 'n shoot.

I have thousands of color slides made with an Agfa Silette, a Voitglander Vitessa, a Leica, a Canon TLb Reflex, a Yashica with a Tessar lens (the Rolleiflex lens) but it is impossible to post them.I have also a Sony DSC-V3 but I travel less and don't climb any mountain.I have slides of Dolomite mountains at sunset, when they become red (enrosadira) but cannot post them. Sorry.

@Tullio - if these are 35mm slides in little plastic cases, there are home scanners that can scan them, then you could upload to Photobucket and post a link. But maybe more hassle than you want to undertake. We have places here that will do that for you and give the results back on a CD.

Thanks Chris. I have a friend here that is a former professional photographer and I know he's doing just that on his photos. Maybe he will help me.

It isn't that hard (tedious, but not hard). I have a scanner and am in the slow process of digitizing about 10K slides.

I have a scanner that does specifically slides/35mm negatives; I haven't used it in quite a while, as 99% of the negatives I had got ruined in an unscrupulous storage place's room (not climate-controlled, and not water/moisture-resistant, so you can just guess what happened to them).
I scanned as many of the 'good' ones as I could (and there weren't many), and I'm still (years later) in the process of 'editing' them as best I can. A lot are what I would consider "unrestorable", but I kept them because of the picture itself.

Ouch, that hurts.

Here's one I took at Flushing Meadows Wold Fair site last year, it was an experiment taking it into a cloudy sun, but I like the result.

The statue is called The Rocket Thrower

Sometimes Silhouettes work. This is one of those times.
