Photographer's Note

This is a(nother) view of the rice terraces in Sapa, North Vietnam. This is such a beautiful place and provides a welcome break from the oppressive summer heat of Hanoi.
We took a day trip from Sapa and saw lots of scenery just like this. This type of agriculture is very much low tech', which means that what you can see here is the result of a lot of very hard work over a long period of time.

This is my first attempt at a scanned photo. I had real problems with the colour balance and depth. With IrfanView, I increased contrast, saturation and gamma, but I had to reduce the blue channel by 50%!

I would be very interested to hear what you think.
