Stunningly done ... they don't come any better than this one ... v

Canon G5. Returned it back to the store after trip. This generated so much noise in the skies, that to fix it;
1. I copied the layer
2. Erased skies from new layer
3. Blurred the skies on background layer to get rid of noise
4. Adjusted saturation, contrast and brightness on both layers
5. Blended layers and run unsharp mask at 165, 1.8, 3.0

The rest of gallery is no good, LOL ?

bonjour Eldar !
you are a magicien ! magnifique !
Eldar Kadymov17-Oct-2007 01:33
Eric, sorry for upsetting you so much ! Also, kudos to you as I respect emenies who don't show their faces behind the masks and pseudonyms. Don't forget, though, it's artistic representation of St. Michel, besides I am not trying to impose anything here, while rather expressing my cincere fascination of beauty of France. You definitely would never understand it... One could see thousand things which might've gone terribly wrong with any particular image , but the most important thing that counts is an overall impression and message it delivers. This image was bought by Ministry of Culture of France for $2,680 Euros, so I think they know better what is the most beautiful image of St. Michel since they could not find another alternative... Ever...Yet, you, sorry idiot, failed to see it, because you're nothing else but pitiful Homocanadicus... My recommendation would be that you better travel to St. Michel and show me what you can do with this place, otherwise you sound like president Bush or that newly introduced moron Dion, LOL
Eric Aubry 16-Oct-2007 22:25
1. Sky is out of focus and the sky's grain dont seem to match the Abbey and foreground
2. Sky reflection in water dont match the sky's colors
3. The hard edges around the Abbey shows that it was isolated from another picture
4. The grass, rocks and the Abbey dont have a ambient that match the sky's colors
5. There is a lot of weird blur between the shore,grass and the bottom of the Abbey
6. This image as no exif
7. I'm 99.9% sure it's a crappy fake montage made by a human being

Hello Eldar. I hate to disagree with you but this is the finest photo ever taken of St. Michel by both human beings AND non-human beings (Aliens, Spirits, Poltergeists, etc.):) Sorry for your error:) Michael.
Eldar Kadymov08-May-2007 19:50
Then show it to us, uneducated people, LOL, so we all can celebrate the glory of Robert's artwork :-)
John Locke08-May-2007 18:58
The best image of St.Michel ever taken by a human being was the one of Robert Capa during WW II.

Eldar Kadymov09-Mar-2007 03:19
Oliver, then you need to teach us what's really working on own examples... from film director prospective , of course !
Guest 07-Mar-2007 20:36
From a film director perspective, I see a strong mixture between the sharpness of digital and the beauty and glamor of film. Not sure if it works though
Rick Roluf12-Feb-2007 02:28

Michael, I am flattered by the comment, but... we all know this is the best image of this place ever taken by human being.... how about the rest of gallery, does it meet your approval or not at all, LOL ???!!!
Michael Weinberg07-Oct-2006 18:30
Hello Eldar. Perhaps the greatest photo of the Abbey at St. Michel ever captured. The combination of angle, exposure and violently dramatic sky makes this famous come alive like never before. This is one amazing photo....and although you can not see it, I would bet they serve Borscht inside. Ciao. Michael,
