Lago di Como Photo Gallery

Every now and then there is a slow period with fewer assignments, and I use this time to work on the site or just relax. Recently I realized that I have not really added content to the site for a long time, and I decided to change this over the next few weeks.

I started last week with the update of the Rome gallery, and this week I worked on the photos from our trip to Lago di Como in 2011.

This gallery is quite interesting as the trip was really a vacation, i.e. I took just our small Ricoh CX-1 camera (that we typically use just for snapshots) while I left the “nice” DSLR bodies in the office – less hazzle with the bodies, lenses, backpack. I was really surprised to see the good image quality of this P&S camera.

Sure, once you zoom into the high-resolution images, you inevitably begin to see all the typical shortcomings like sensor noise and chromatic errors, and you certainly have less leeway in post-production than with RAWs from a 1D mark IV, but still the quality is fully sufficient for presenting the images on our site. :-)

Lago di Como is a perfect summer destination. You get Italian lifestyle and food paired with Victorian architecture and stunning scenery in a moderate climate.

So, please enjoy our selection of Lago di Como photos.
