F1.8, 1/13s and ISO 6400? I suppose you agree: it must have been dark there 🙂

By the time you read this, the image should already be on Flickr in full size. Look at it at pixel level.

Not impressed? Ok, now look at the small red inscription on the green glass in the upper left corner. Look at the small yellow reflexes on the chrome against the dark sky. That’s what I mean when I praise DxO PRIME’s color purity. I’ve never seen anything like that before.

I saw this old truck in one of Villach’s industrial areas. I suppose it’s decoration now.

These trucks were built by Ă–sterreichische Automobil-Fabrik and in the 1960s and 1970s they were among the best-selling trucks in Austria. The name “Tornado” feels slightly exaggerated though 🙂

The Song of the Day is “Wild Is The Wind” from George Michael’s 2011 album “Songs From The Last Century”. Hear it on YouTube.
