Three very nice photos, David! Your grandson is really cute. Must be a joy to have him around. And Erik has of course a toy with him, just as you told me

Best wishes,
Reto

Nostalgia number II: Re-processed photos from 2004-2009

Meanwhile I re-processed photos from Zurich where I lived for many years. It's really worth to re-process older photos because modern software has become very powerful.

For the entire series of latest Zurich photos please go here . I will certainly add more in the coming days and weeks. I show images from the older and from the modern parts of Zurich, including the zoo.

The "Schipfe", an old and beautiful complex of buildings.

The famous Limmat Quai.

In the narrow streets of the old town.

In a more modern part, above and along the Limmat.

The Grossmünster

Modern building in District 5.

King Leo posing for a portrait...

... and proudly presenting his family.

Spectacled bear in his nice territory.

One of them again at the water.

Go here for the entire series.

Please don't hesitate to comment or to ask questions.

All the best,
Reto

Thank you Reto and yes, another toy for Erik.  When anybody visits both hwvs have to bring them a toy, however it is to show not to give unless requested.

These are super.  I have some nosy old jpegs (inadvertent ISO 3200 on a small sensor Panny) and you are encouraging me to see how the latest software could get on with them.

Great job with the buildings; those old Canons were very good, and the 17-85 was my favorite everyday lens when I shot with them.

If you don't have the RAWs you may go ahead with Denoise AI. but if you have the RAWs I'm confident that PureRaw (with DeepPrime) would take care of them very well

Lovely Dick, thank you.  From its markings I am trying to work out what the background is in the first particularly.

I think that's why I like it. I'm a little strange myself.

It's my fence, well out of focus. Hadn't thought about it, but it makes an interesting BG.

Re: Nostalgia number II: Re-processed photos from 2004-2009

Great shots, Reto.  Once again, your pics bring back memories of living in Europe many years ago.

All my images of those days are, of course, prints from film.  I didn’t discover digital photography until around 2000 (never looked back once I did!).  Those thousands of old prints are in plastic bags and boxes out in the barn.  With only a handful of exceptions, I never digitized them.  Each time I think about doing that, I am stopped in my tracks by the sheer enormity of the task.

Thank you. I'm surprised mine are so nice, given all the cold weather we've had in Texas.

I want to call it art. I like it. (Am I strange too?)

I like the R1

Apart from speed and screen it´s a great old camera.

Picnic by the sea. Best to eat in the car.

Horses are nice for photos. But they have little patience with the photographer.
