Caspita che tramonto.....foto molto bella!
Con che cosa scannerizzi le dia??

Hi Andrea,
Great scan with amazingly beautiful colors. I like the position of the sun. A small pitty that there are two dust spots. These can be coled out easely.

Andrea what I like best is: "No artificial effects, no filter, only natural sunset light".

Is there a smal blob in the upper left?
