Platycladus trees in Dodong, Daegu. And thought on Kodachrome film.

This is my contribution to Wiki Loves Earth 2017.
This place was designated to the natural monuments of Korea(South). You can see this photo at Korean wikipedia 대구 도동 측백나무 숲 - 위키백과
or here.


Technical note:
Photo taken with Sony A7 and Nikon 105mm f2.5 Ai-s lens.
I don't remember exact aperture number but judging by time--sunset, out of focus area and shutter speed, it probably f/2.5 or f/3.2-ish.
And then raw file processed with RawTherapee.
 - exposure - auto
 - increase highlight and shadow
 - film simulation to Kodak Kodachrome 200
And then that processed jpg file post processed with Gimp.
 - adjust level
 - adjust curves
 - resized to 3600 pixels.



thought on Kodachrome film.

RawTherapee support variety of film simulation so I have more than 100 of film simulation. One of my favourite is Kodachrome. I just don't understand why--even Kodachrome film simulation looked superb, Kodak stopped producing it.
Early 2017, Kodak said they will bring back Ektachrome though so it might possible to Kodachrome, too.
