    I was digging around on my USB stick and found a folder titled Pretty pictures....
    Just wanted to share my personal favorites. Do not look at the grainy quality of some of them, because they are actually scans of analog pictures from the good old days...

    #1 - London (scan)

    #2 - Texel, small island of the coast of Holland (scan)

    #3 - Finland, some building in Helsinki (scan)

    #4 - Just a tree covered in frost

    First three are really nice, I think the grain adds to the character of the shot.

    :lol:
    The turtle was in a pond in front of a tiger enclosure in the zoo. And I insisted on taking a picture of the tiny turtle instead of the huge tiger behind it!
    The print on my wall is actually 50X100 cm, which compensates for the size of the turtle!

    #9: A church in Leuven, Belgium
    [​IMG]

    #10: Bird on the patio in Curacao.

    EDIT: Just saw that the last picture turned out so much darker after I stuck it in Photobucket... And I know my sea is escaping to the right, but I am currently on the university computers, and now possibility what so ever to edit it...

    Thanks! But what are you saying? Do I have grain or noise now??;)

    The grainy appearance was a completely unforeseen side effect to a small project for my class. I had to show something about myself. So I started digging through all my photo's. A lot of the shots are actually digital, but I couldn't find the files so I scanned them in.

    I will remember this for other pictures too. It's a easy post processing job, when you don't have PS!:lol:
