The view from Wallberg-Kapelle

I took this photograph a year ago, during a short excursion to Wallberg. I took it hand held, planning to go back later during sunset and then set up the tripod to retake it with better light. As it turned out, the light was worse during sunset and so, the sunset shot didn’t work out as well as this shot. And though I liked the composition, this shot was ruined because it was blurry due to the fact that I was shooting with a 300mm lens in a strong wind. So I had filled it away considering it a ruined shot. Recently however, I acquired a new software called Topaz Sharpen AI and decided to give this shot a go, and I was amazed by the result. The photo was salvaged and here it is.

This post is not meant to be an advertisement to the Sharpen AI software and I am not affiliated to them in any way. However, I was amazed by how well it works and I thought it is worth spreading the word.

I also shot a video on that day. Very short but I am particularly fond of the music I put on that one, particularly at the end of video.

  1. I recently tried this Topaz plugin and I was very pleased at the way it handeled some of my shots I thought were imperfect. This is a very nice shot and it would be a shame if you were not able to salvage it.
