Photo quality

The photos you can see on this site do not really do justice to the original file quality. There are several reasons for this :
- the high compression (we have limited the size of our screen photos to approximately 100 Kb, giving a download time of 15 to 20 seconds with a 56 K modem).
- their limited scale (goes with file size). With the original files we can offer views 1.06 m wide...
- post-processing compromises linked to the quantity of photos to be processed (15 000).


To obtain a quality digital photo, you need to carry out post-processing from the original file. Given the number of photos taken, we have automated this work. : mist, cloud, atmospheric haze, morning light, full sun, evening light, changes in direction, sometimes with into-sun situations when we were photographing a particularly complex coastline, and the colours of the locations. We therefore had to compromise.

Following several try-outs, we selected a « reasonable » processing script, with middle-of-the-road rendition, in order to avoid chromatic aberrations and derivations.

Nevertheless, we would like to show you the real quality of a photo, obtained after specific processing.
Here are two examples :
