Sneak Preview -  A View Through the Past

Uploaded: April 18, 2004 15:43:12


The digital camera setting was auto and the picture was taken on April 11, 2004 on a walled bridge overlooking the very old city of Cesky Krumlov in The Czech Republic. As I was trying to sharpen the picture, I inadvertently hit 10 on the sharpness scale and the picture came to life! The photo looks like an ancient oil canvas painting, when in fact, it is just a photo of an ancient city viewed through its past.

Many thanks to all of you for your notes of congratulations. I am very new to and it is quite an experience to interact with all the photography lovers and view all the incredible pictures that are posted each day.

I am currently living in Vienna, Austria so do not have much contact with other photograpers.....still learning German so it is harder to talk techniique, etc. without having a common language.

I am hoping to increase my day to day interaction with photographers beginning in June when I will have a break from my classes.

Thanks again for all of your wonderful comments.
