Real of fake?

I took this photo about four years ago on a ferry from Oban to Mull en-route to Iona.

It struck me at the time that it looks a little unreal, or maybe “too real”, as if it were the output of a fractal landscape generator. Looking at it again now, it still has that strange feel to it.

Another thing about this image is that it was taken by my then fairly new digital camera. Looking at it now I am very happy with the quality of the image.

Whilst uploading old images to Zooomr I was recently struck by how much better my old 35mm scanned photos were compared to my recent digital ones. This image, and some others I have since reviewed, have renewed my faith in my digital camera. Maybe the problem isn’t the camera – maybe its me.
