Here is something different! How about an Iphone image? This shot was taken by a brave Martin Wapenhensch and here is what he had to say about it:
“It depicts a “starting paraglider” at the peak of the Tegelberg mountain in Germany which is the mountain where the famous castle Neuschwanstein is located (http://www.neuschwanstein.de). It was taken last summer after quite an arduous 3,5 hour way up the hill. On the one hand, I like the picture as regards the visual motif (not IQ), on the other hand it proves that the best camera is always the camera which you’re actually carrying with you: it was taken with an iPhone, which I normally wouldn’t dare to call a camera. Normally, I use the Olympus C5050Z for digital travel photography, Canon 30D for people, and Leica M6 for film. Unfortunately, I didn’t use the Leica gear for quite a long time since digital is so much easier.
I slightly cropped and downscaled the original, adjusted the tone values a little bit, and finally did some resharpening using GIMP.”
