The view across Siena

Siena from the Torre del Mangia

Siena from the Torre del Mangia

For no reason, a photograph taken from the top of the Torre del Mangia in Siena looking towards the Duomo and the countryside beyond. The view, after climbing the tower’s 400 steps is absolutely wonderful.

This shot was taken 12 years ago and has survived a transfer from film to print to scanned image. The scan was state-of-the-art for 2002 (for that read low res, and full of noise) but, with a little Photoshopping, it can be brought back to life.

  1. Great shot. If you still have the negitive, and can find it, try re-scanning from that. I have had some stunning results with something as basic as a Cannon Multi-Purpose (an MP800 in fact).

    • Mate,

      Rescanning is absolutely the idea. The box with the original photo and negative is stored in the ceiling somewhere. Knowing my filing system, it’s probably marked “Kitchen utensils”.

      Cheers
