Running Ronin

Taking a Walk through Bressanone

Took these photos without a tripod and directly in Jpeg format. Worked them a bit by tonemapping them (yes the jpegs!) in Photomatix and then some detailing or denoising in Topaz.

As for Bressanone (which I now know is Brixen in English), if you are around the Dolomites skiing, you should go visit this ancient town - being able to visit towns that are more than a century old are one of the reasons why skiing in Italy is so much better than in the rest of the world! :)

From Wikipedia:
The third largest city and oldest town in the province (first mentioned in 901), the artistic and cultural capital of the valley. It is located at the confluence of the Eisack/Isarco and Rienz/Rienza rivers, 40 km north of Bolzano and 45 km south of the Brenner Pass, on the Italy-Austrian border. It is flanked on the eastern side by the Plose and Telegraph (Monte Telegrafo) mountains (2,504 m) and on the western side by the Königsanger (Monte Pascolo) (2,436 m) mountain.
Brixen is especially known as a major skiing resort (the Plose). Other activities include hydroelectric power, orchards and vineyards.
