Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia -- September, 2008 -- I'm re-posting images that were originally slides (Fuji Velvia) or early digital photos after tone-mapping them in Photomatix and adjusting them in Photoshop. The difference is not dramatic but subtly noticeable. A search for the title will land you on the original image.
