To dta: Purple

  • Dear Denis

    Thank you very much for the kind comment. I think the 'purple haze' in the background is due to the sensitivity of Ektachrome to ultraviolet (the photo was taken at about 12 noon). Certainly, the scanning has emphasised the purple cast but I was cautious about changing the colour balance for fear of creating artefacts, especially as I had to compress the image substantially to meet the 300Kb limit of TE.

    Best wishes

    Stephen
